  • Joining us today: Zack Hunt — The American Jesus
    While continuing his graduate studies at Yale Divinity School focusing on the history of Christianity, Zack blogs this kind of stuff in his spare time! “A certain fast food chain likes to say 'have it your way', and apparently so does the church. You can have the faith anyway you want it, or at least that seems to be the message we put out in America. This is NOT a political blog. It’s an only sometimes serious look at the phenomena of American Christianity. If I find a good video I’ll post it. If I read something that gets me going, I’ll rant about it. And if there’s a theological tangent I feel the need to discuss, I’ll write about it. Hopefully you will enjoy my musings, but if not……it’s probably because you’re probably a communist!”

  • Jamie Wright — The Very Worst Missionary
    Last time we spoke with Jamie she was indeed, the very worst missionary! However, there are reports that she is now The Very Worst Pastor's Wife! Jamie’s refreshing blog has been catching the attention of those of us who aren’t ultra-sensitive-conservative-fundamentalists. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read… “Inappropriate remarks, embarrassing antics, and generally lame observations about living life as a Christian missionary in Costa Rica” from a mother of three and wife of one?

Talkback, etc.

    This week on The Counsel Of Many: A young girl wants to know if she should go to her aunt's “coming out” party or disobey her parents and not go.

    My aunt is having a party to celebrate coming out as a lesbian. My mom and dad want our entire family to go to it. I'm totally not comfortable with this because, although I love my aunt, I'm pretty sure (although not 100%) that homosexuality is a sin and I just don't feel comfortable going to a party to celebrate it. Besides, even if I did go, I'd probably just end up sitting off by myself and not really engaging with people. (Maybe because I'm also a girl with a “lesbian” haircut and I just don't want those who don't know me to think... never mind.) Then it would be obvious that something was “wrong” with me and then someone would ask and then I'd have to tell them that I just wasn't cool with being there. And that whole conversation would totally suck! However, as much as I want to honor what I think the Bible says about homosexuality, I also want to honor what it says about honoring and obeying my parents because God has put them in authority over me. SO... if I go to this “hey everyone I'm a lesbian and I'm proud of it” party, I'll be going against my conscience and against what I think God would want me to do – BUT I'll be dishonoring and disobeying my parents, which is also what God wants me to do. What should I do?
