Seriously Good Conversations

Here are a few SGCs from this week. Do enjoy and engage:
Progression of Faith’s ‘Is Emergent Christianity DOA?’
Preludium’s ‘Beating up the Archbishop is just the beginning’.
Greg Boyd’s ‘A Bono Looking Church?’
benedson’s ‘Sacremental Missiology’.
Also, make sure you check out Josh Brown’s series entitled, ‘Challenging the Critiques of Emergent’.
In terms of book recommendation, this week I would like to suggest William Faulkner‘s The Sound and the Fury. As a Southerner, this Southern-gothic classic represents not only the dysfunction of the South (meaning of America) but the dysfunction in us all. If you have the patience to read it, I would highly suggest it. Who knows, you may even find a bit of your own story it.
The book gets its title from this soliloquy by Shakespeare’s Macbeth:
“Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
”Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing…”
Finally, my youtube video of the week is this one which is the story of a young boy who has autism. It is a bit old now, but i found re-watching it this week still deeply moving. Enjoy!
