Back… back… back in time! Unless you go way back on Blog One Another, this will all be new.
It’s common for bloggers to wrap up the year with a “best of” summary. But that doesn’t work for me this year, since I only recently came back from a one-year hiatus. So instead, let’s stretch back to 2003. I give you classic posts from my first year of blogging!
- Postmodern Daydreaming — I brainstorm about what a “postmodern” worship service might look like. I don’t understand why these things are still so rare.
- Postmodernity Schooling — Cutting-edge classrooms have changed to adapt to a new way of thinking. Why haven’t churches?
- “The sick and demon-possessed” (Mark 1:32-34 Lectio) — In my lectio divina series, I meditate on how “You are a sinner” no longer works as a starting point for evangelism.
- Sunday Services Overrated? — Why do church plants often begin as small groups, but then pour 80% of their effort into a large weekly meeting?
- Heat and Light: An evangelistic conversation — A friend asks me if he is going to hell.
- “Stories” (Mark 4:1-20 Lectio) — Another lectio divina, in which I think about how my decision to stop evangelizing my friends has led to more conversations about spiritual things.
- Stop Inviting Friends to Church — I tried inviting my friends. Believe me, I tried.
- Ritual and Meaning — Kids respond to “all that pomo touchy-feely, multi-sensory stuff.”
- Adventures in Nametagging 2 — An experiment in wearing a nametag in public makes me a bolder servant.
- A Different Approach to Evangelism — What if we turn the tables? Not “I am helping you,” but “You are helping me.”
Thanks for reading, commenting, and sharing Blog One Another with others! I’m looking forward to what the new year brings. (2012, that is.)
