If you look at the CBE post comments about the SBC “homemaking” classes, you will see that the cost of that program is over 60k for non Southern Baptists (abt. half that if you’re SBC). So let’s examine this: A woman acquires $35 thousand of debt to learn how to be a good pastor’s wife, complete with [...] Related posts:

*sigh* Just when I have a surge of hope that Christians in American are “getting it” in the area of gender justice I read something like thisand all I can do is laugh…because if I don’t I’ll cry with despair. (HT CBE) It’s no wonder Jimmy Carter had to publicly separate himself from the SBC. Here’s a taste [...] Related posts:

As I’ve mentioned several times here, I grew up in the charismatic/pentecostal tradition. One of the wonderful things about that tradition is that I KNEW that God heard me, spoke to me and was present and involved in my life. I do not recall ever doubting that beyond blips here and there. One of [...] Related posts:

One of the things that blogs and online relationships lack is that “face time”, I wish people would post more pics on blogs for that reason - - Michael Frost would likely call that narcissistic (he’s very suspicious and critical of internet stuff like blogs) but I would disagree hehe.

Sometimes life flies at you at breakneck speed and you find yourself with emotional and mental whiplash before you even know what’s going on. That’s how I feel right now. A core couple in Revolution is leaving us in December - they’re moving to Denver for very good reasons and even though we fully [...] Related posts:

If you haven’t heard about this, it’s worth a watch. We caught the last half of the Christian warriors episode last night and we dvr’d the encore so we can watch the whole thing with Revolution. It was disturbing, insightful and had moments of hopefulness for Christianity. I’m very interested to see the other two. Related posts:
