September 2014 Synchroblog: Race, Violence, and Why We Need to Talk About It.

11 Sep

race violence and why we need to talk about it

Issues of race and violence have crossed over the centuries. It’s embedded into human history and sometimes we think we’ve come further than we have.  The events in Ferguson are not just about Ferguson. They tell a bigger story, a story of racism and violence and power and division that is reflected not just in that one town in middle America but in neighborhoods, cities, the church, the world.

This month the Synchroblog will create a space to share our reflections about Race and Violence and Why We Need to Talk About It.  What is bubbling up?  What do these current events stir up in our own life and faith?  Why are these conversations so important? How can we be better participants in the conversation?  

We will be hosting this the 4th week of September instead of the third, so post by midnight on Tuesday, September 23rd.  Post your link here in the comment section as soon as your post is up. We will combine all of the links and post it on Wednesday morning, September 24th for everyone to share at the end of your posts.

We hope you can participate!

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

12 Aug


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.
