I'm piggy backing Scot McKnight's recommendations today. Check out Jerrod McKenna's Sojourner blog on Mark Driscoll, St. Francis, and the MegaChurch. It's a good one. Thanks to Scot for pointing this one out. I'm not a super fan of Sojourners, but they are often right on when it comes to peace and justice issues.
My next link is totally out of the realm of our faith. But, I think there is a life lesson here. It's cruel, graphic and hard for us soft westerners to grasp. But this lesson from a 21st century primitive man can teach us a lot about persistence. Warning...this is graphic and not for the squeamish. Thanks to the internet guru, Kim Komando for highlighting this video.
Back to mundane matters. In case you haven't noticed, there is a war going on in the Catholic Church for its survival. There are a small number of people who are intent on bringing revival to this creaky, ancient Church. Check out this May 4th article. What Does the Prayer Really Say? It highlights the divisions going on. And you think Protestants are divided!! Thank you Jeff for bringing this to my attention.
Just another thought...ponder this...If the Eucharist is NOT the body, soul, blood and divinity of Christ, then the Catholic Church is the greatest fraud ever devised by man. Take away the Eucharist and the whole Catholic church disappears. But if the Eucharist IS the body, blood, soul and divinity of Christ, then maybe we Protestants need to take another look. Maybe we don't have to accept the doctrine of substantiation to believe it...maybe???
Think about it......ta ta
