New Blog Design with 100% more Monk

I used my free time on my days off to re-skin my blog. Notes: 1. For this theme, I quit IE6. I don’t care about IE6. 2. I’m not finished. I’ll be tweaking the design as time goes on, and permits. 3. This design comes with 100% more monk. He’ll spit out wise sayings, for your consumption. So, say hello to Monk.

As Time Permits

I’ve been crazy busy; I’ll return as time permits. Stay tuned!

The Jesus Politics Network

Thom Stark has just launched The Jesus Politics Network. The Network promises to be a place where radical, counter-cultural, Gospel-based reflections concerning society and non-violent resistance are expressed regularly. I am personally thrilled to be a part of this project. I’ll be posting there regularly, along with Thom, Jacob Breeze, Stephen Lawson, Tyler Stewart.

A Not So Random Life and Ministry Update 07172007
Rest is a good thing. I finished preaching two services this past Sunday at Manor Church, then took a break on Monday. It was a needed one. I was wiped out. I’m recharged and ready to get back to work! God is so good.

The Final Live-Redesign of Lo-Fi Tribe is Now Complete
What probably will be the final re-design of Tribe is now complete. I needed a distraction for a few hours and as usual I found the joy that is rearranging Tribe to be more than distracting enough for me and my busy mind.

Fun with Mint 07202007
Mint is an addictive little additive to web sites. Most stats programs that record visitor/referral information are loads of fun.

Books Already Shelved and My Fuddruckers Money
So, I wrote a scathing review of a book titled Bible-Carrying Christians by David Watt.

A Readers Update on Regular Posting

Blogging has been slow, obviously. The majority of my time has been dedicated to family responsibilities and a growing ministry. Tribe is not going anywhere, but regular posting will not be resuming until late fall, at the very least. I do have a few reviews I have to publish and those will be coming very soon. My apologies to the web marketers and publishers who sent things for review. They will all be reviewed as promised. The church plant is growing though, and we have much work to do in our city. Time is scarce; God is good.

Prioritizing, Leading, Following, and Blogging

Inner Metro Green

Ministry happenings and responsibilities are once again chipping away at my blog time! That’s OK. The more real-time ministry I engage, the more I’d rather be doing that! Blogging is great and all, but it pales in comparison to seeing real change in real time and getting involved with it. A blog, at least for me, should simply be an extension of real-time ministry, at least for the Christian. A blog should be a simple record of what’s going on in the real life of a believer; a blog should never BE or BECOME your life. That’s putting the proverbial cart before the horse, IMHO. A blog also should be, IMO, a way to share resources and ideas implemented and tested in real-time. If it becomes anymore or anything other than that, I think priorities were twisted somewhere along the line. I’d stop and check myself. So, though my blogging is slowing a bit, my ministry is ramping up. That’s a good thing. Read More »
