So I’m sitting out in the yard, with a cold beer and a wireless connection, ruminating on the state of the blog. This has been a great exercise in expression for me over the past few months, being able to set out roughly hewn ideas and have intelligent people mull them over with me. I thought I might take a minute to link to a few of my favorite posts from the past few months.
The very first post of the blog, and still one of my favorite statements of life-worship.
My favorite thing that Aly does is to recast the personal experiences of life in ways that make them into communal events. I, too, mourn the death of my own personal coolness. For me, this is easier, since I didn’t have much coolness to lose.

Part of this blog has been an exercise in discovering what this emergent movement was all about. I’m still a bit confused, at times skeptical, but some of the early posts stand for me as benchmarks of the values that are being untangled.
I was overwhelmed by the response of this community to a real and present need at Motel California. I don’t know if we should start calling this thing church yet, but on that day, it surely was.
So there we are. Those are my faves. According to the site stats, they aren’t the most popular, but I’m establishing truth by fiat here, not by consensus. If you have different ones, link them below.
