The community center is coming along nicely, and we are about 75-days away from getting the keys. Which means a lot of work ordering furnishings, contacting utility companies, planning the opening, and so on. All seems to be piling in at once, plus the continuing change-orders, additions, and problem-solving that go with building a 16,000-square foot building. But, it’s going well, just fast and furious. Which explains my lack of posts this week. So, until I get my sermon for Sunday up, here’s some good stuff I’ve been reading:
- Seth Godin, The Forces of Mediocrity, on why everyone doesn’t rally to your good ideas.
- Kevin Kelly, Tools for Big Love, a great illustration on why the internet runs of love, and how love applies to technology and Shinto temples. Watch for this in this week’s sermon.
- Steve Taylor on How should we use the Bible?
- iMonk on the Religious-Industrial Complex.
- And finally, if you haven’t read Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw’s new book, Jesus For President, a review will happen this weekend. After the sermon.
