- Exercising Authority without Exercising Authority: Alan Knox ponders Jesus teaching that his disciples “not exercise authority over one another” and asks, “How can we exercise authority without exercising authority? In other words, how can elders exercise authority over other followers of Jesus while living according to Jesus’ teaching in this area?” This certainly seems contradictory of Jesus, but is it?
- Fresh Expressions of Church Among the Maasai?: John Bowen points his readers to Christianity Rediscovered, a book by Vincent Donovan and updates the outcomes, wondering, “Was Donovan’s work then simply an inspiring but naïve experiment, doomed to failure?”
- Rethink Church: A Collaborative Sermon: Adam Walker Cleaveland asks his readers to collaborate on his Sept 6 sermon. A number of folks chime in and the discussion includes suggestions and some give and take about the lectionary.
- The worst evangelical heresy?: Doug Chaplin, AKA clayboy, wonders whether the red letter bible is the worst evangelical heresy.
