I have recently found a whole slew of great blogs to learn from and who provide a community of voices different then my own to challenge me. Woo hoo! (Of course I am also putting off finishing my current dissertation chapter tonight by reading blogs online but…) Check out the mommyrevolution, missional moms, green mama, moms acting up, theology mama and more than serving tea for women who are speaking about their context, faith, families and race. I think the conversations that are coming out of places like these are helping to reinvent and create space for women and families and moms and discipleship of all stripes. Praise God.
I also love Experiential Theology, a new blog I found by a Christian Psychologist that has a wealth of information on it! While it’s largely very easy to read and written in a conversational style, he has heavy resource content – like publications and commentaries on everything from economics to theology in the public square, to Freud to Marc Driscoll.
Other blogs that I’ve either recently added or frequented include Arloa Sutter’s blog (at Breakthrough Urban Ministries – they do AMAZING stuff here in Chi-town), along with Soong-Chan Rah’s always fascinating read (ProfRah). JesusCreed (Scot McKnight) akways has a LOT of info and comments, which are fascinating to read – but lately the topic of gender and race have been covered more frequently. Informative.
These sites are reminding me to read, to think, to engage concepts with new dialogue partners…and also to do my own writing and reflecting more again. Also, to do my homework. I am now heading back to dissertation writing. Will peak my head out again later.
