Advent Blog Tour

We are already halfway through this journey - but the good people responsible for the Common English Bible translation have been sponsoring a blog tour.  Each day from December 1 - December 25, a piece of the Advent/Christmas story is shared and an assigned blogger shares a reflection.

These stops have been absolutely powerful reflections!!!  My Advent journey has deepened just reading them, but also as a result of getting to write one myself - tomorrow's in fact.  I hope you all might catch up with the posts and join us for the rest of the journey!

Next Cohort Meet-Up Set

We had a great meeting last Wednesday. I enjoyed getting together with Chris, Katie, and Jim.  We talked about Doug Pagitt's book, Church in the Inventive Age.  I think we all would recommend it.  It's a good read and is short.

We set out next meeting for January 12, 2011 at 12:00 p.m.  Again, we will meet in Coralville at Fusion coffee shop.  This time we plan to discuss Carol Howard Merritt's book, Reframing Hope!  It looks like a compelling book.  She is also the host of a podcast I listen to often, God Complex Radio.  Looking forward to meeting again.  We welcome your input here on this blog.
