April Synchroblog – Do You Live Under A Rock?

29 Mar



DO YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK? – April 13th (second Wednesday)

As Christians we say we believe in the resurrection but sometimes it seems like we are living under a rock instead of living a resurrected life. As Easter approaches take some time to reflect on what it means to live out the resurrection. Does the resurrection make a difference in the here and now? Have you seen evidence of the resurrection in the land of the living? Would/Could resurrection life change anything/everything in the world/your community? What does it mean to practice resurrection? Join this month’s synchroblog and share your thoughts, reflections, opinions and stories as you consider the question “Do You Live Under A Rock?”

Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the April announcement here on this blog by 6 p.m. EST 4/12/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog. The list of participants will be compiled and posted on 4/13/2011.

    My Blog Post for this month:

    Name: Phil Wyman

    Title: Apocalyptic fervor spurs benevolent giving
    Link: http://squarenomore.blogspot.com/2011/04/apocalyptic-fervor-spurs-benevolent.html

    This is a satirical post on one of our great “under the rock” tendencies in Evangelical Christianity – a satire on apocalyptic date setting prophecies.

      Thanks, Phil!

    It’s an old post but I believe fits nicely with your question: Do you live under a rock?

      but the link for him and Mike Victorino aren’t working at the moment as they haven’t yet published.
