feeding places

It's been far too long since I had a few minutes spare enough to sit down and post. I've had to make do with "browsing and grazing" as far as blogging has been concerned for the past few weeks, and I am grateful to those whose blogs I've always found helpful that there's always something worthwhile to read and ponder. It's been a way of keeping in the conversational loop, albeit as an observer! Had you been able to see it, though, my body language would have said "Engaged listener" very loudly!

One place I've stopped over repeatedly at of late is Sean the Baptist. Sean is a Greek Orthodox monk who … (just kidding!!!!) Sean is the New Testament lecturer at Northern College, Manchester. What I particularly enjoy is the way in which he interacts with theology, so that for someone who is fundamentally a biblical theologian, it's a nourishing waterhole! I may be mixing metaphors here, but the point is, go visit and see for yourself …

new blog on the block

Just discovered that Keith Alexander, a URC minister in Manchester, has stared a blog – Thoughts of Keith – with a thoughtful (no pun intended!) piece on the privatisation of faith (or at least, that's what struck me about it). Drop in and visit.

gone live on the lectionary!

I'm ahead of my schedule, which is unusual enough to make video of the event and seal it in a time capsule, let alone simply diarise! My disclosing new worlds blog has gone live, with reflections on the texts for 11 September rather than the first week in October. I'd be grateful for any and all critical comments, please. I want to know whether it's worth the time, and that depends on how effective a resource it proves to be!

discovering dissonance

I came across Mark Balfour's dissonant bible blog. He's doing some important stuff there. Have a look at his post on David's concubines.

pay ’em a visit

Isn't it good to discover friends who are fellow bloggers? Drop in on Jane at Lost coins. It's a brand new blog so she'll welcome the encouragement, I'm sure. Kate's Breadbreaker is more established and has some great artwork. Read her reflection on the feeding stories. Both Jane and Kate are URC ministers. We erk-bloggers are an endangered species!

Blogging with the congregation

Long time no blog! I've been frenetically busy with courses at the Windermere Centre and having to go cold turkey as far as blogging is concerned. Have a look at the Christchurch Needham Market blog. Homileo has followed up the suggestion of using a blog to enable the congregation to have more of an input into the service. Just the sort of innovation we need to try out!
