My blogging buddy, the indefatigable Brother Maynard is doing a series on Friendship and Marketing the Church. It's worth the time to read. (You might also want to check out my series which began in December on Marketing the Church here, here, here, here, here and here. You also might find my Family Marketing Sucks™ post humorous.)
John Frye recommends N.T.Wright's Simply Christian. If John recommends it, you should read it. (It's one of the books I need to finish...if I could only find it.)
JR Woodward tells the powerful story of the Mustard Seed Foundation - a must read.
Bob Hyatt points to another Emerging Church Expert - which further proves the point that even idiots can use YouTube.
I pointed to it in the Updates to my Global Warming Heresy post, but Tim Challies has written an interesting post comparing Johann Tetzel and Al Gore on the selling of carbon offsets and papal indulgences.
And just because you need to smile, Brant Hansen has popped up briefly from his blog hiatus with this - making it all better. (Now I'm singing about "just like a mini-mall", yikes!)
