Fun Things To Know and Tell
March 28th, 2008 by Sonja

Here are some links, conversations and tid-bits for your weekend perusal or something like that.  Or because I’m bored and should be doing laundry.

A really fabulous definition of what knowledge is … or is not.   An argument … but go see for yourself.

Have you read The Shack?  If you haven’t, then get thee hence, go to … go to (yes, it really will change you and your life).  If you have, go over to Waving or Drowning and put in your picks for the cast of the fantasy movie that we’re making.   I picked Mandy Patinkin for Jesus … but that’s all I’m telling you.  You’ll have to go see what started the whole thing for yourself.

Jake is looking for input on theology lectures … if you have a favorite and know where it is on an .mp3, leave it in the comments for him.  He’s putting together a mixtape of them.  Whodathunk?

Will Samson started a conversation about Dr. Wright and his soundbites but someone left a comment about abortion versus mountaintop removal.  I’m not certain I get it, maybe you will … in any case, go watch the YouTube clip and leave a more appropriate comment there to offset the silliness.

Over at Perigrinatio, Doug meditates on the one obligation we are called to.  It’s powerful.

Last, on a pretty somber note, I’ll join the growing wave of people who recommend the series over at FuturistGuy on Spiritual Abuse.  It is both sobering and redemptive.  I have found some of it extremely emotional, part of it made me want to throw my computer across the room, and then part of it made me nod in agreement.  But after processing it all I am glad for it.  It is helpful, healing and good.  I anticipate the next piece with some apprehension and some excitement.

    Sonja, have you been following “Willie”‘s blog? It has some great stuff…those of you who have already read “The Shack” need to see what’s here:

    I am glad you got over to Brad’s blog. He is brilliant (just like I told you) and I am grateful for his perspective and depth of his research, experience and writings on this topic.

    I’ll try to check out the rest of your stuff…but, dude, there are way too many of my blog buddies making links for me to follow…. 8)

    I finally finished the Shack last week!

    I get what you’re saying about it and Dance. Though I think there are two different views in mind, different aspects of the summation of the Law maybe. The Shack is about a relationship with God–one man and the Three. Dance is about our relationship with others that flows out of the relationship with God–us and many with God. Shack is vertical, Dance is horizontal.

    In other words, people need a god they can see. And people want people have gods who can be seen. So the hierarchy becomes an idol, a god who is there and speaks.

    An idolatrous atheism. People don’t really believe in God, so they come up with a system that hides the fact.

    Oops! Wrong thread. 😀

    Maybe I do need someone to tell me how to do things right…
