It’s Three Things Tuesday (well, it’s actually Wednesday and I’m running late but there’s no cute name to go along with Wednesday, so…it’s Three Things Tuesday) again.
Thing #1 The Real @DaliaLama
Believe it or not the Dalia Lama now has an official twitter account.
You can catch his tweets @DalaiLama.
Thing #2 Criticizing Church, Defending Church
Scott McKnight defends the church against her critics with arguments about the church being made up of a bunch of imperfect people therefore no one should expect her to be perfect…blah, blah, blah.
I think that is a poor defense…just because we (the body of Christ) are all imperfect and prone to make mistakes doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be criticized when we do harm to others or that we should expect people to stick around while we do harm to them or those they care about.
But, in case I missed the point or read something out of context read his post at Jesus Creed (and the comments) for yourself and see what you think.
Thing #3 Billy Coffey
Maybe I’m out of the loop and everyone already knows about Billy Coffey, but I was pleasantly surprised to run across him in the blogosphere recently. There is something raw and honest about his style – his writing really draws me in and I come away so glad to have read what he wrote.
For instance, check out a recent post he wrote called “What Happened To My Kindness”
Oh, and he has a book called Snow Day coming out later this year.
