Back from my break with resources

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

I'm sitting in Starbucks finishing my thesis – or at least the first draft of my thesis. It's time, I think, to get back to posting to Dying Church.

Some random items:

Dear Church: Letters from a Disillusioned Generation is out. I haven't read it yet. Reports I've read say that the author manages to rise above merely complaining about the church by writing "love letters" to the church. If you've read it, I'd love to know what you think.

Just came across Stupid Church People, although it's been around for over a year. Some good posts, and some controversy occasionally as well, as you'd expect with a name like this.

Also reading The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical by Shane Claiborne. Some challenging stuff here. I've heard of people who agree with the book but can't bring themselves to do something about it. Some provocative arguments here on how we function as churches. Read at your own risk.

I continue to look for and love those who are calling the church to die to itself, while also loving the church. If you know of other resources like this, let me know.
