Christdot :: Christ. Period.: "grrrendel writes 'Instead of creating fresh new ways to bring the Gospel into the culture, Mr. McLaren and associates are trying to bring the culture into the Gospel—if they retain the Gospel at all. What could have been an awesome reawakening of historic Christianity will, if left in these unfaithful hands, be a Trojan horse for liberalism in the evangelical community.'"

"You know he has one. You know it's the big 60GB model, loaded, flawless and gleaming and radiating a strange liquid ethereal glow and couched in a beautiful custom rainbow-colored biodegradable case made of clouds and eagle feathers and wine.
What's on it is, after all, a pertinent query. It is the modern-day personality test. Your iPod's contents are now considered more revealing than your porn collection or your prescription drug addiction. Jesus is a monster music fan. You just know it. After all, Jesus was an agitator. Jesus protested. Jesus battled the demons of the status quo and he defied the sad dictatorial norms of his day and as such the Holy iPod is surely home to a huge number of songs of protest and resistance and hope, rebellion and triumph and joy. Just for starters." Christdot
"A certain type of subculture is associated with Baptists. We could spend all our time explaining, 'No, we're not that type of Baptist.' Or, we could change our name."
Any how, we had a great time sitting around and talking about life, and as usual I ended talking about the "Gig". I spent some time talking about how I see that things will happen, how we will get involved with the community and ideas on the venue side of things. (Wow, do I ever like to steal Rob's language at times) I mentioned that the one person that we really need to find is a venue guy...someone that can run things there, which is a creative promo guy and can book events. Sarah's eyes were really big. She went on to explain that Marty, her husband, and she have really felt called to Kitchener. They didn't know why... no family, I am the only friend they have there, but God had really been talking to them each time they are there or drove past.
the short story on Marty is that he is this genius of a promotions guy and back in the day we put on some fun concerts and air bands. We both went into radio at the same time and he still is working there as the promotions director of the Fan 590 but he's tired of that. I want him to meet Rob and talk about it in depth.... but he seemed excited just about the idea.
It is so cool to see God as the architect on this whole thing

Business as usual will not work if our local congregations are to become missional. We must be willing to question our value systems, particularly with regard to property, wealth, and endowments.
We must scrutinize the criteria of success that we transfer to the church from our society... (Missional Church, pp.240-241)"
In his letter to the Kitchener Record editor (sorry they don't have letters to the editor online) Andrew Teichroeb writes:
In the April 5 Record, I read the article, Plows May Get $35M Home; Kitchener Councillors Back New Storage Maintenance Buildings, about how the City of Kitchener is planning on spending $35 million for a new "home" for their snow plows. As a volunteer worker with the homeless and an advocate for social justice, I could not pass up the opportunity to address the irony of this idea. Do we as a society truly believe that a new "home" for machines is a higher priority than providing homes for the many homeless people on our streets (our neighbours)? Isn't providing life-giving help to even a few, more important than protecting giant hunks of metal that need no protection? The purpose of this letter is not to attack the City of
Not a bad point.... Thanks to Alan W. for pointing it out to me... see I do read all those forwards
