1. Anthony Smith‘s essay on racism and practicing Pentecost. There is much to be said here, but Anthony has got it going.
2. Jim Smith’s genuine rumination on the struggles of preaching.
3. Brad Bergfalk’s suggestions on starting up a casino ministry with senior citizens.
4. Nancy Nordenson’s post (dig around for there are others) on writing and how to cut things back to find a good rhythm.
5. Jeffrey Jue’s study of emergent, which while it makes the same mistakes of others (too narrowly defined; absent of any sense of missional; nothing serious about ecclesiology; too much about epistemology, etc.) is still useful for all of us.
