April 2014 Synchroblog – Bridging the Divides

7 Apr

a house divided cannot stand

Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that Christianity is continually dividing these days. Huge chasms have formed between conservative and liberal camps. Theological positions are becoming more solidly entrenched.  Differing views on biblical interpretation are separating us, creating walls that separate us from living in community together. Churches are splitting. Organizations are finding themselves in the middle of the fray, unsure how to proceed because of the cost of landing on one side or the other.

This month, the Synchroblog will be centered on Bridging the Divides and ideas and perspectives that different bloggers might have on ways to heal these divisions in the church.

We hope somehow these posts can be a healing balm this Easter season.  Post by Tuesday April 22nd 2014 at midnight, and put your link here.  The Link List will be posted by Wednesday April 23rd, and please put it on the bottom of your post so others can access the entire series.  Thanks for participating!

December 2013 Synchroblog – Coming Home / Tuesday December 17th

2 Dec

all of life is coming home

The Kingdom of God and Home. These words together are an interesting combination.

Frederick Buechner writes, “The Kingdom of God is where our best dreams come from and our truest prayers. We glimpse it at those moments when we find ourselves better than we are and wiser than we know. We catch sight of it when at some moment of crisis a strength seems to come to us that is greater than our own strength. The Kingdom of God is where we belong. It is home, and whether we realize it or not, I think we are all of us homesick for it.”

For December we thought it would be fun to join in with Christine Sine’s annual Advent synchroblog and center our December topic on the idea of “Coming Home” and how it relates to this season of advent leading up to Christmas. What does Coming Home mean to you this season? Is it practical, spiritual, emotional? What does “home” look like or feel like in the kingdom of God? Do you have a “coming home” story that you’d love to tell?

Share it on your blog on Tuesday December 17th 2013. and then put your link here in the comments section. Christine Sine’s Synchroblog will be running all of December, but we’ll still stick with our same date. We’ll post a link list on Wednesday morning December 18th, and Christine will link to it, too.

All are welcome, the more the merrier!

October Synchroblog – What is Social Justice, Really?

10 Oct

injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere

Social Justice.

This word is getting tossed around a lot these days in many circles, especially in light of so many hot topics related to justice and equality happening around the world today. It means so many different things to different people.  What does it mean to you? Why is it important as a person of faith?  How are you seeing justice lived out in your context?  What’s a story of what justice looks like in real life?

For October’s Synchroblog, we would love to hear different perspectives on Social Justice.  Post your post by Tuesday evening October 22nd at 8pm and share your link in the comments section below, so it can be included in the link list.  Thanks, too, for including the link list at the end of your post.

Please feel free to pass on to others who might also want to participate.  All are welcome!
