Hi all! I know I’ve been kind of absentee around the blog this week (though there was a new newsletter – sign up now so you don’t miss any more!). I’ll be honest, it’s probably not going to improve that much in the following weeks. I’m waist deep in editing for Not Afraid. Also, after talking to Ed Cyzewski this week about reworking my book proposal, I’ve been inspired to work on that as well. I’ll be sure to let you know all about working with Ed. (Most important thing? I did not have to say his last name at any point in the conversation. Phew.)
Anyway, other people are still writing lots of great stuff and I love to share good things! I hope you find something interesting here.
- Rachel Held Evans wrote a positively stunning piece about dealing with the ethics of questioning the rules. She made me cry with this one.
- Then my other favorite three-named blogger, Matthew Paul Turner, wrote about his own experience with standing in the light with the LGBT community.
- Fred Clark at slacktivist wrote a fantastic post responding to Al Mohler’s statements about why evangelicals should focus on homosexuality over other sins.
- Shawn Smucker (who is edging ever closer to my neck of the woods!) wrote a lovely essay about not giving up.
- I’m becoming a huge fan of Addie Zierman and her blog. She has a simply beautiful style and you should definitely subscribe to her blog. This week she wrote a particularly powerful piece about Going Deep.
- Loved this post from Michael Perkins on fear. Such a great reminder.
- It’s getting warm. Be on the lookout for rogue pillows.
