Jesus Creed blog…

Today I discovered Scot McKnight’s blog, Jesus Creed, and promptly posted the link. I may regret this as I read more of him, but I was impressed with the entries on the first page. To give you a few tasty tidbits:

  • On Faith and Doubt – “I don’t think doubts are dissolved so much as they are, by faith, put on our shoulders to be carried along with us.”

  • Friday is for Friends – “The gaze of God can create a world where wrongs suffered will not come to mind.”
  • The Art of Conversation – “…by and large I don’t think evangelical Christians know how to converse…The first obstacle is the right vs. wrong risk…The second obstacle is that conversations…become information-exchange sessions. I want to explore the art of conversation, where at least two can gather to converse about a topic and learn to explore one another’s thoughts with one another.” (By taking this approach Scot’s blog generates very interesting comments and conversation, it seems.)
  • Trumanism – “I grew up a Trumanist Christian, as in The Truman Show with Jim Carrey. That is, I grew up in a bubble, protected from the rest of the Church by a protective dome that prevented outside interference.” No, he didn’t grow up in the Assembly. He was Southern Baptist. Good post on sectarian elitism.

  • There’s more, of course. Try it – see if you like it as much as I do so far.
