Look at #HarryPotter, (with help from Diana Butler Bass) and Christ & Culture

It happily matches Diana Butler Bass’s, though is from a differing perspective In undergrad I got a BA in Hist and Engl and (almost) a minor in Philosophy…but really, I was studying fairy tales & fantasy. I did my thesis on that. Then in seminary, … Continue reading

#nextchurch reflection

We heard Brian Ellison preach about grace ind diversity in the morning and More Light Presbyterian hosted (what ended up to be) as huge reception-that-turned-into-a-celebration that night. Good … Continue reading

My Talk: Lonely Church, Lonely Ministry: Ignite Ministry Ideas

Ideas for partnerships (or why I have co-clerks) Footnote: the comments about farmers pertain to MY farmers in a small upstate market, and do not apply to all farmers everywhere. Other great presentations available at nextchurch.net and will be published by me shortly

#easter #smallchurch #emptytomb #emptychurch #nextchurch

Family Church

I went to General Assembly in 2012 as an observer…which meant, literally that I was there with absolutely no ulterior motives, I just wanted to see how things worked.
