What a week! Some great stuff happening around the blogs I follow, and here are the highlights.
1. About that evangelism thing
I honestly can’t believe how many people messaged me about this one. I don’t normally get more than one private message about anything at all, and here I sit with several. Apparently, this is a topic dear to a good many of you. While most people agreed with me, not all did, and a few let me know that not all evangelicals are cut from the same cloth. Agreed, and I plan to follow up yesterday’s post with a bit more explanation of what I mean–particularly the difference between churches that evangelize versus evangelical churches. Anyway, thanks for talking about this with me.
2. While we’re on the subject
Weird wavelength thing–I hadn’t seen this when I wrote my post yesterday, but this was Naked Pastor’s cartoon.
3. In my in-box
One of the coolest things about blogging is having my readers send me stuff they think I’d like or be interested in. Got an email the other day sharing a link to this great post about misogyny in video games. I happen to like video games very much, but I’m into racing and sports games. I often find myself being unusual among gaming women because we don’t tend to like the same things. So if you’re a woman who enjoys the same types I do, I want to hear from you! What do you like and why?
4. Defining love
This is a fantastic article reblogged by one of the people I follow. It explains very well the convoluted thinking in fundamentalist churches. Dare I say it, this applies outside of religious circles. One does not need to believe in God to think there is a “best” and that other people need to be bullied, coerced, or shunned into agreeing to whatever this “best” is.
5. Two sides, on coin
These two posts on Registered Runaway’s blog are superb. What a wonderful and honoring story of friendship and coming out. It is told first by the woman who received the gift of her friend’s revelation and then by the woman who shared her soul. Bring tissues when you read them.
6. Fiction Friday
Here’s my latest flash fic. There’s some sex, so if you don’t like that, don’t read it. (OMG! Married people over 45 still have sex?)
Have a great weekend everyone, and I’ll see you all on Monday.
