November Synchroblog – Spiritual Abuse and Redemption – Link List

19 Nov

http://www.rubysemporium.org/spiritual_abuse.gif

Nearly everyone in the country and especially in Christian circles has heard of the implosion of the megachurch in Seattle, WA known as Mars Hill and the accusations made against it’s lead pastor, Mark Driscoll. Regardless of how you feel about Mark Driscoll in particular, what would it look like for the Church as a whole when abusive leaders are held accountable and then are reconciled? How do we do that in such a way as to let victims be heard and redemption be the end goal. What does redemption and/or reconciliation look like in real life? What does grace look like in these situations?

To be clear, this is not a synchroblog about Mark Driscoll (he is just an example among dozens we might have used) but about asking the question of how to handle spiritual abuse so that the Christian tenets of justice, forgiveness, reconciliation and redemption are honored.

Below is the link list for this month. Please make sure you include this entire list at the bottom of your own post on your blog. Then, feel free to go read, comment, and share the posts of other people.

The theme for our August synchroblog was a one word prompt and the word was:

“Connection”

We were told to write about whatever comes to mind… to tell a story, share a poem or piece of art, reveal a desire or dream, ask a question, review a book …  the theme was wide open.

Link List – July 2014 – Give Me Liberty

23 Jul

http://sas4liberty.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/cropped-liberty_pic1.jpg?w=490July is here and I always associate that with Independence Day. I suspect that’s not terribly strange. For this month we’re working with one word: Liberty. You can write whatever you want about that word … what feelings does it evoke? How do you define it? Do you think you live it? Or not? Those are just some ways you could look at it. You could write a poem, or a story, or a more traditional blog post. Just use the word, “liberty” as your starting place and see where you go.
