June 2015 Sycnhroblog – Hospitality

10 Jun

511694_2849_437022

In a world that has grown frighteningly guarded and harsh, Christians are called to imitate Jesus by being sacraments of God’s hospitality in the world. This month we invite you to share your thoughts about hospitality.

Here are some questions for inspiration:

Is hospitality an essential element of imitating Christ?

Is hospitality a lost art?

What would it look like if hospitality was a way of life?

How does “true hospitality” compare to “modern day entertaining”?

Can hospitality really make a difference?

What is the purpose of hospitality?

Are Christians known for their hospitality?

Please share your link in the comments section of this post by Tuesday, June 23 midnight. We will publish a link list on Wednesday, June 24 that you will need to copy and paste to the end of your post.

We require two things of all participants who wish to be included in the link list:

(1) Begin your post with a short intro stating that you are participating in the synchroblog and link to this post. Examples: “This post is part of the June synchroblog “Hospitality”. Or “This post is part of the June synchroblog that invited bloggers to write about “Hospitality”.

(2) Add the link list to the bottom of your post with a note encouraging readers to check out the other synchroblog contributions. We do all of the heavy lifting by putting the list together with all of the links included. Once we post the link list all you have to do is copy and paste. The list at the end of each post makes it easy for readers to move from one post to the other and increases exposure and readership for all of our participants.

Thanks for participating!

“Crash” Synchroblog – Robin Williams’ Performances We Remember and Why

12 Aug

Robin_Williams_2011a_(2)

Hey Synchrobloggers – one of our own suggested that we have a “Crash” synchroblog (a new self-explanatory term coined by Ryan Neace) to blog about a Robin Williams’ performance that you remember and how it impacted you.

Leave your link here as soon as possible and I will try and put a list together starting on Wednesday evening and add links to it as they come in.

Don’t forget to add a short intro saying that your post is part of the “Crash” synchroblog: Robin Williams Performances We Remember and Why (and link back to this post).

Once I have a list of links posted please copy and paste it to the end of your post.

I also suggest that you add the following tags: Robin Williams, Movies or TV, Synchroblog, Crash Synchroblog and the title of the film and role you are writing about.

I look forward to reading your tributes to someone who touched so many of our lives.
