Stuff Online worth reading

– Time Mag last week had a piece on the new Calvinism. I read it on paper but you can read it online here. I get it. I was a new Calvinist in the 1980’s and had more Banner of Truth books on my shelf than anyone I knew. I see the attraction but I also see the pitfalls of going back to the 17th Century to get reoriented in a postmodern world without going back to the early church in the New Testament.

Clean up your blog with Christian Affiliate Marketers – who I met at BlogWorldExpo last year in Las Vegas. Dang – I need to clean up THIS blog!!

– The Brick Testament gets a mention in an article on Lego, which saw a 51% rise in profits last year despite the recession.

– Mark Berry, who I greatly admire, is podcasted on Something Beautiful

ChurchCrunch comments on my cyberchurch symposium posts.

– Mark Sayers on the fragmentation of emerging church. Its a well thought out post. I relate well to the neo-missiologists in his line-up but most probably am more of a “blender”, or a combination of MOST of his categories which probably isnt very helpful to his illustration. And I would add that book authors do not equal leaders in the emerging church. Where would, for example, Pete Grieg of 24/7 prayer fit? Judging EC by its books is like saying the leaders of the American church are Tim LaHaye and William Paul Young. Still, Mark has some unique insights here.

    Thanks for keeping us updated, Andrew. I went to San Fran last week with my daughter and hung out with Linda and Eric Bergquist and Brad Sargent. We talked about you and Debbie and the house on Ashbury Street quite a bit. Can’t believe that was over a decade ago. You really had an impact on my life – still do, as I follow your journey from afar. Thank you for following Jesus.
