Three Obligations I Have as a Faith Blogger (re-blog)

Spot.  On.

Reblogged from Alise…Write!

Today I’m standing with my atheist writing friends and saying that questions and criticisms should be allowed, even of things that I hold dear. And while this may not do much to help those who have been imprisoned for those questions or criticisms, it may begin to blur some of the battle lines that are drawn between our communities.

The Morning After…

Hi everybody!

It’s been a very unusual few days.  This blog has received way more attention than ever before.  I’m still figuring out how to work with it and keep up.  Almost half of my all time hits on the blog have happened in the past two days.  The number of subscribers has tripled.  If you’re one of the many new readers, I’d like to formally welcome you to this conversation!

I use this place for posting my sermons, funny/witty/inspiring pictures from Facebook, expressing the occasional thought that hitchhikes through my brain, and promoting the work of friends and thinkers who I admire.  It began as a reflection on an inner-city chaplaincy program that I started a few years ago, but has since morphed into something else.  I’m open to requests for topics, hosting guest bloggers and reblogging interesting stuff from other sites, so if there’s something you’d like to see or talk about, don’t hesitate to ask!  I’m really glad you’re all here and I’m honored that something I wrote has touched a lot of people where they live.  Thank you so much for reading this and walking the journey with me.

Be blessed and be a blessing!
