April Synchroblog Link List – What If … ?

17 Apr

ImageWhat If … ?

When I was young, I loved to play the ‘what if’ game. It went like this: I would imagine an unlikely scenario and present it to my mother to find out what she thought. Since I had an active imagination, I engaged in this til I drove her to distraction and she would declare, “No more ‘what ifs’!!” Now that I’m older, I’ve discovered there is a whole group of people who play the ‘what if’ game. They’re called philosophers!

This month we invite you to play the ‘what if’ game with us. Try to imagine that some or all of the Bible narrative is not necessarily true history, but is myth of one sort or another. What sort of effect would that knowledge have on your faith? What effect might it have on the larger church? How would it change you? Would it change you and how you view the world?

We recognize that this might make some or all of you uncomfortable and while we recognize the struggle involved with that sort of discomfort, please feel free to blog about that fact as well. The ‘what if’ game can involve some prickly feelings and we welcome that as well.

Here are the links for for those participating this month:

Advent 2012 Link List – Tell Me A Story

12 Dec

Below you’ll find the link list for this month … but first, a reminder about our stories:

We find a lot of comfort in the story of Christmas, as we should. Advent is that time each year when we slowly make our way through the journey of that wonderful birth so long ago. Very often we, as the larger community of Christ, consider this season from the perspective of expectant waiting. But Advent is about much, much more … it’s about the harbingers of Jesus’ ministry on earth … hope, and love, and joy, and peace. What are your stories of hope, love, joy and peace? How do you remember them and pass them on to your family or your neighbors? Can you see the shadows of Jesus in them? Since it’s Christmas, won’t you please tell us all a story about Advent in your everyday life. Share your story on your blog this month. Post your links in the comment section by 6pm on Tuesday December 11th and a link list will be published on Wednesday December 12th.

A special thanks to Sonnie for answering the Synchroblog survey and inspiring the December synchroblog theme by reminding us that the best posts include people’s stories.

Our contributors for this month are:

Carol Kuniholm writing at Words Half Heard

Jeremy Myers tells us about Santa Clausette
