Transfiguration: My Ordination Anniversary | One Cannot Have Too Large a Party. This is a great reflection on the meaning of ordination that led me to a new BBC series – Rev. It hasn’t been aired here in the US but it can be viewed on hulu. I watched the episode referenced in this post, […]

A Squeakier Patches and Stumpy – YouTube. Here is a reposting of a classic reflection on the dangers and inadequacies of strict Biblical literalism and inerrancy. Biblical interpretation is not about getting the words and rules right, its about encountering the living God active in our lives now. But let’s just say the position “The […]
Now don’t get me wrong. I love band led worship that can rock the house. I also have a very deep snarky streak that loves good satire. This clip is just brilliant and is in the style of DaVinci’s Notebook satire of boy bands, Title of the Song. Like anything, Emergent/Pomo/Alternative worship can become just […]
Fix You- Young@Heart – YouTube. Fix You is one of the most powerful songs for worship that was never written for worship that I have come across. What is really fascinating are all the covers to this great song. This version is from Young@Heart, a group of senior citizen singers reinterpreting rock songs. Now this […]
YouTube – Grover Henson Memorial Day Tribute from WJP. I created this video just using iDVD for a sermon this past weekend. Its a great song by Bill Cosby called Grover Henson Feels Forgotten. It came out in 1970, made it up to #70 on Billboard, and then disappeared. I was six when it came […]

Thanks to Bob Cannon for letting me know about the sound problem. I borrowed my oldest son’s gaming headset since my headset mike is busted and the sound was very different than what I usually set up for. So I didn’t check closely enough on the sound levels and the background music became too loud […]
Igniter Media has a viral hit on its hands. Not only is this quickly making the rounds on YouTube but I think pastors like me are recognizing one of the most powerful retellings of the Christmas story that I have seen in years. I think if there was any question that postmoderns are digital natives […]
In working on my sermon for this weekend, the gospel reading is Luke 15:1-10 and the part that jumped out at me was the accusation levelled at Jesus that he welcomed sinners and ate with them. His response was that heaven celebrates when the lost is found, when the 99 are left to fend for […]
While I’m not real happy with the audio – for some reason I sound kind of muffled – a posted podcast is better than no podcast at all. Holy Week seemed like a rough one for Christians this year. As we remembered the suffering and death of Jesus, the news seemed to focus on abuses […]
