June 2018 Synchroblog Invitation – Authority

6 Jun

The June 2018 Synchroblog theme is “Authority”

As a Christian where do you look to for authority?

Where does ultimate authority and meaning rest for Christians today?

An institution? Scripture? A Christian leader or leaders? Community? Jesus? Spiritual experiences? a combination of some of these things or something else entirely?

Who determines what is right and wrong, correct and incorrect, holy and heretical?

Share your thoughts about where you believe Christians should look to for authority as they live out their faith.

Please write and publish your article by Tuesday, June 26, and then post your link in the comment section below. The Link List will get published on June 27.

October 2015 Synchroblog – Our last synchroblog

1 Oct

Sad-pug-1024x682
October 2015 will be our last Synchroblog theme. After mulling it over for a while, our team has decided to discontinue our monthly Synchroblog. It’s been a lot of fun, we’ve met some amazing people and have learned so much through this process of sharing our ideas and thoughts through blogging.

We will leave our Synchroblog site up with all the themes and link lists but this month’s theme and link list posts will be our last. We will also leave our Facebook page up but will change the settings so no additional posts can be made on that page.

Our final synchroblog theme will be: “If this was my last blog post, here’s what I would say…”

For the month of October we invite you to imagine what you would want to say if you were writing your very last blog post.

Would you reflect on something from the past? Would you want to talk about blogging and how it has shaped you? Would you repost something from the past? Would you want to recommend other blogs? Would you want to rant about something? Would you tell a personal story? Would you share something you have learned along the way? Would you be dreaming about the future?  What is on your mind that you would want to share if you were writing your last blog post?

Please share your link in the comments section of this post by Tuesday, October 20 at midnight. We will publish a link list on Wednesday, October 21 that you will need to copy and paste to the end of your post.

We ask 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 October 2015 Synchroblog ‘If this was my last blog post, here’s what I would want to say’”. Or “This post is part of the October 2015 Synchroblog that invites bloggers to imagine what they would say if they were writing their last blog post.”

(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! We look forward to reading your fabulous last synchroblog posts!

June 2015 Sycnhroblog – Hospitality

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!

Link List – April Synchroblog – Bearing Fruit

22 Apr

Fruit_Stall_in_Barcelona_Market

Fruit … glorious fruit. It’s mentioned several times and in various contexts in the New Testament. We’re told we’ll know people by their “fruit.” We’re told that we should tend the “fruits of the Spirit.” But that supposes we have some idea of what “fruit” is. What does it look like in the life of a Jesus follower? What would the term “bear fruit” look like? How do we, as followers of Jesus, “bear fruit” in our ordinary lives?

That’s the theme of this month … fruit or bearing fruit. In whatever ways those terms hit you, let us know.

Please add the link list to the bottom of your post. Thanks!
