a pomo site for mulder and scully

i recently came across this slammin' site on pomo ministry. this is a thinkers pomo site... a new yorker mag, in a sea of people mag pabulum. if mulder and scully were on a serious hunt to explore truth within the emerging christian counter-culture, they would surely check out antithesis

brother, can you spare some chords?

i'm back from search party... (that experience is still soaking in...) until then, here is info. on a really useful site for church bands who are in need of guitar chords/tabs for many popular worship songs. also, i think you can sign up on this site and submit your own chords, to help create a true "chord nirvana" for everyone.

i'm off tomorrow to search party in st. louis. i'm gonna meet up (in real space) with some of the postmodern church planter and kingdom blogging folk whom i already treasure as friends, but have yet to physically meet.

i may not post anything new till i get back monday, but i'm sure my experience there will stimulate a few posts upon my return.

i ain't oprah, but here we go...

digital storytellers by len wilson and jason moore: at last, a book to save the world from the "modernist use of powerpoint in worship hell." if you want to torpedo boring ppt. bulleted sermon points from a modernist pastor who thinks he or she is now hip because he or she is using technology, read this book! better yet, buy the book and send it to the modernist pastor and do his/her congregation a big favor. read digital storytellers

gen x religion, ed by richard w. flory & donald e. miller, provides an accurate "npr like" documentation of religion, as actually practiced by xers, and even reflects theologically on xer subsets (like the goths) and on the phenomenon of piercing among us.
and, unlike many other xer books (filled with clever quips by boomers about xers), this book was written by serious sociologists of religion (many of them xers) who actually researched and studied churches founded by and for xers. amazing and authentic...
