What is your favorite faith-based hymn, song or chorus?
Probably going to be the toughest question because I have many hymns I want played, sung and listened to at my memorial service:
And Can It Be - especially verse 3
Long my imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature's night;We recently sang I Cannot Tell in church. It's words are so inspiring.
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray, I woke, the dungeon flamed with light.
My chains fell off; my heart was free. I rose, went forth and followed Thee.
Twila Paris' Lamb of God always brings tears to my eyes.
What was the context, content and/or topic of the last sermon that truly touched, convicted, inspired, challenged, comforted and or otherwise moved you?
If you could have all the Presbyterians read just one of your previous posts, what would it be and why?
What are three PC(USA) flavored blogs you read on a regular basis?
The Reformed Pastor by Rev. David Fischler. He posts fascinating stories about the church and culture from around the world, adding his poignant and pertinent opinions and observations.
Kruse Kronicles by Michael Kruse. Similar to David's, insights into our culture, trends, and good reads.
Shuck and Jive by John Schuck. I often come away from his blog shaking my head in disbelief in what he writes. 99% of the time I can't believe the stuff he expounds but occasionally he has something ponderable. I read him because I like to hear diverse voices.
If the PC(USA) were a movie, what would it be and why?
For some odd reason The Matrix comes to mind. I think because true reality takes faith. We think we're living in reality but it is make believe. What I read and hear from many in the denomination is a lack of faith. It seems the trend is to only stand by that which can be tested in a laboratory. Faith in the unseen is mocked and ridiculed and taken to be backward, a sign of ignorance and lack of education.
