Random Stuff for the Week of 9/16-9/22
* Google has released their new search engine specifically geared for blogs. I think that I will find this tool particularly helpful as I navigate through the ever-growing phenomena. * Robb Schlapfer, founder of the Discerning Reader, Antithesis, and Christian Counterculture is, well, AWOL from the Internet. Last month, I made a post called The Disappointed Reader, which I guess now is the The Disappeared Reader. Robb simply says, "We're done," and throws the Gandhi quote underneath, which says, "I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." Sounds like something's going on there. * Phil Johnson (Pyromaniac) has a well-known list of links/bookmarks with annotations that would serve you well if you were looking to find some good links/sites that would benefit your study and understanding the current of today's issues. * Todd Outcalt, pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church in Brownsburg, Indiana, last week preached a sermon called "The Life and Times of Jesus" on September 9, 2005. "So what?" you might be asking. Well, his goal was to preach the longest sermon ever in the state of Indiana. Well, according to their website, The Longest Sermon (yes, they actually have a site for this), says that he preached for 12 hours. Whoopty. To add embellishment to this embarrassment, they are selling this sermon on 12 CD's for $75, which will go towards their building fund. Everyone altogether now, let's say, "Wow." * One of the new facets of P&P in the future is the welcoming of guest bloggers who will be addressing certain issues. I am at this moment working with a few who will likely be guest blogging at P&P in the future. More information later. That's it for this week. Still have so much on mind that I would like to write about! Have a wonderful and safe weekend! - t.n.b. P.S. - Oh, and by the way, I don't ever want to hear from anyone that I am long-winded preacher!
