These guys over at Pyromaniacs are having a week of brevity– but I can’t get over their motivational posters about the Emergent Church. This post has another two on the topic.
I’m not quite sure what to totally make of all of the Emergent and Post-Modernism that’s floating around the net these days. I haven’t taken the time, really, to dig into much of it. A lot of the stuff that I’ve been reading seems to say that Purpose Driven and Emergent are very much the same– and they take the emphasis off the Bible and place it onto feelings and experience. That’s a dangerous move.
A simple quote, but a deep thought. Why is it that Jesus compares the kingdom to children? Is it their honesty and candor? Is it physical age? Is it their innocence, their ability to trust, or something else? There’s a lot about kids that is appealing, why do you think Jesus chose them as an example?
We all have limits when it comes to frugality. I mean, we could all be saving money by doing all kinds of things, and this post talks about some lengths people will go to to eek out just another few pennies a day (or $30 a year) savings. There has to be a balance between frugality and convenience. Where that is is for each person to decide.
It’s interesting the different ways people react to what they see. Becki reacted to a woman that was dressed more like she was supposed to be in a night club than picking up her children by stifling laughter. It’s hard not to feel sorry for these people, in a way, because they are trying so hard to be something, to gain attention– they are missing the Savior.
Which is funny that she should mention this because my family all gathered around a bowl of popcorn last Friday night to watch it. It was the first time that my kids had seen it, and I was sure they would like the sword fighting. Instead, they wanted me to play the part where the old woman says “Boo, Boo, Boo” again.
A father comes home after being disappointed about a woman seeking the need for attention by dressing immodestly only to have his daughter ask him to cover her. It sets him thinking Biblically in this free ebook about what it means to be a father.
Congratulations to Rob at Say Anything. He has some ultrasound pictures up of his baby and he muses about how it’s impossible for him to think of it as anything other than a baby.
That’s it for this time through the ole blog reader. Tune in next time!
