My take on the rotating blogroll

As you can see to the right, I have a pretty lengthy list of Totally Schweet Blogs. I personally subscribe to each of those blogs. If I stop subscribing, I stop linking. I try to only support those blogs that I actually read. Some bloggers, in an effort to increase their Technorati authority score, will link to anyone who links to them, regardless of whether or not they actually read Continue reading...

Wednesday Wanderings

Instead of a “Monday Musings” post, I’ve cleverly rescheduled my random post to Wednesday and changed the name to “Wednesday Wanderings.” Get it? But that’s not the only change.

In no way is this unique to the music industry, but it is fresh for the Christian-music machine. Brody Harper, CEO and visionary behind Skorinc, tells of the struggles they faced trying to pull this project together in his latest blog post. It’s a pretty interesting story. I haven’t had a Continue reading...

What would happen…

…if churches shut their buildings’ doors, gave the members their contributions back and encouraged them to invest in their neighborhoods or community? What ministries would suffer? Who would be left behind or neglected? What good could come of that? Just a question floating around my head since Sunday. Any thoughts? Note: I believe this idea originated with LifeBridge Christian Church in Longmont, CO. They’re not shutting their doors, but they Continue reading...
