Thanks to everyone who participated in the June 2014 Synchroblog!

If you contributed, please add this link list to the bottom of your post. Thank you, and see you next month!
What do you wish you knew 10 or 20 years ago? If you could go back 10 or 20 years and tell yourself one thing, what would it be?
For the June 2014 Synchroblog, we invite you to travel back in time to the “You” of 10 or 20 years ago and tell yourself something you know now but wish you had known then.
Maybe it is a warning, or a word of encouragement. Maybe you just want to tell yourself to lighten up. Or to stay out of that relationship. Maybe you just want to tell yourself that it will all be okay. Maybe you just want to tell yourself to invest in Apple. Ha!
Obviously, the one thing you tell yourself might be rather short, so for your Synchroblog post, you might also want to share the story of how you learned what you are going to tell yourself. Share how you used to be, what happened, and why you are the way you are now. Give the back story. Explain why you would give the advice to yourself to avoid the pain, hurt, problem, stress, and damage of what you went through.
To participate in this Synchroblog, publish your post on your blog by Tuesday, June 17 and then leave a comment below with a link to your post. The link list will get posted on Wednesday, June 18.
Once the link list is published please copy it and paste it on the bottom of your post so others can access the entire series.
We look forward to reading what you write!

Hell is talked about cautiously, if at all. Yet the notion of a divinely ordained place of punishment for the wicked after death is deeply embedded in the Christian imagination. How should we think and talk about hell?
We invite you to join the conversation and share your thoughts about the controversial subject of hell.
(The Rob Bell video was included for inspiration.)

Here’s the list of other bloggers contributing posts related to healing the divides this month:
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!
