The Dark Night- A couple of thoughts

Last night I went with Laura, my dad, and step-mom to see The Dark Night. Though I haven’t done loads of film reviews (a thing I plan to change in the next few months when my new site is up), I will offer a few comments here with hopefully more to follow as ideas develop. […]

The Skinny on Brian McLaren at Lambeth

Here is what Andrew Jones had to say about Brian at Lambeth. And here is a chat Brian had with the Lambeth Daily. The Archbishop of Canterbury said you were someone he’d wanted to hear speak to the bishops for a while now … how did you feel when he asked you? I was very […]

I’ve seen several people blogging about meeting Brian at Lambeth. Most have been, as they described, pleasantly surprised by this ‘American evangelical’.
