Around the Blogosphere: Just some things I noticed

December 31, 2009

Bob Hyatt reflects on 5 Things I’ve loved about the Emerging Church movement…

Excerpt: With everyone writing obituaries and whatnot for the emerging church movement, and with myself coming across more and more as a critic, I feel a personal push towards taking a time-out to recollect some positives and praise for a movement, that while mixed, and in many ways losing momentum and splintering, has been significant for me in my journey.
Brian McLaren writes about Five Special Gratitudes for 2009
Excerpt: Five Special Gratitudes for 2009
As I look back on this year, yes, there have been some trials and disappointments, but five blessings have far outweighed them in 2009:
Andrew Jones gives us the Tall and Skinny on Avatar:
Excerpt: I watched Avatar last night with my family. Good flick from James Cameron. Part Tarzan, part Pocahontas with a hint of LOTR Revenge of the Forest People on the Wicked Machines. Romanticism meets pantheism. And an Avatar figure to save the day who just happens to be tall and skinny [yeah!] rather than a mountain of towering muscle.

My good friend David Foreman who posted on the contrast between the Law and Grace in his post called  It Doesn’t Get Much Clearer Than This

Excerpt: The law is “all or nothing,” pass/fail: Gal. 5:3, James 2:10

(There is no “try harder.”)
Those who try, but fail to keep all the law are cursed: Gal. 3:10
The law breeds sin: Rom. 7:5,8
The law brings death: Rom. 7:10
Where law increases, sin increases: Rom. 5:20
The law leads us to Christ: Gal. 3:24

And finally to wrap this up is another good friend Rob Witham who has returned to the blogosphere. Hey Rob! Welcome back.

Finally updated some links on this blog

July 6, 2009

I have been putting off updating my links and finally did it today! I did remove some that were dead and fixed a few that have moved again… and again… (if yours has moved and I missed it drop me a line!)

I did add more to my blog roll or to the list of those who enable Iggy to write with such hatred about the Word of God and born again Christians“… errr as one of my lovely critics calls you… so on the top of my list of haters… I added:

2 Worlds Collide with Dr. James Galyon
adventures in mercy
Molly writes of recovering from culitish legalism and finding Jesus
Confession of a Recovering Pharisee
Kevin writes: I just finished a book called “Confessions of a Recovering Pharisee” that talks about my struggles and battles with legalism. I just need a publisher!”
Cwillz Spills (Interestingly the person who wrote about the enablers pointed out this great site!)
Emerging Worship

Shuan in the City
Subversive Influence

That is just a few I hoped to add… there will be more soon as I have time. Check them out and tell them iggy sent you!

Around the Blogosphere

February 24, 2008
It is that time again when I look outside my little bubble and see what everyone else is doing. And this is what I found…
Castro stepped down… so now who will lead Cuba?
Origin of the Dead Son’s Portrait
Tall Skinny gives the skinny on the most sinful cities in America… so when is the road trip?
John O’keefe asks, “what part of love don’t we understand?”
Jason Clark recommends theotherjournal.com and also welcomes you to hell week… which should be pretty interesting.
On the “this makes me sick” side of things, some are voting if Doug Pagitt is a heretic or not… Doug Pagitt. Heretic or Not? – CWN
This should hold you over for a while…
Be blessed,
iggy

Out of Ur has an interesting article if you preach with Preaching to Express, not Impress.

Under the I have not read that one yet… but he has department:

Scott at Theopraxis has an article on Brian McLaren’s book Everything Must Change and shares his thoughts on it.

Under the personal thoughts and open to discussion department:

Oh that picture is by Matthew Hurst who has been mapping the blogosphere… I thought it was pretty cool.
