I am off to Glisson this afternoon for the church's annual men's retreat. I leave you with some summer reading:
John Meuneir stands Tillich next to Wesley and draws some conclusions. I don't always agree with Meuneir, but he is nothing if not thorough.
James Howell bemoans clergy evaluation time and wonders if there might just be another way.
Keith Anderson does some incisive thinking about what social media is (and can be) for the church.
And, finally, here is a Facebook exchange I find absolutely fascinating. It is incredibly rare these days to see ANY kind of dialog between conservatives and liberals in the church. I know this can be a false dichotomy sometimes, but even then, we refused to talk to one another about real theological differences. I don't know that the tone of this discussion is terribly helpful, but I do find it fascinating.
