Walking the Road: 6/21/10 Edition (Part 2)

More great posts from last week:

Thursday is for Thinkers:  Michael Carpenter from Ed Stetzer
Stetzer is America’s leading expert on church planting and church mission.  This post is from a young church planter who made a mistake as he tried to get to know the people in the subculture he is currently serving, and the lessons he learned from it.  Great read.

Screwtape’s Latest Advice Concerning Church from Neil Cole
If you don’t read any other post, read this one.  Borrowing C.S. Lewis’ literary style from his classic The Screwtape Letters, Cole weaves a masterful post concerning the current state of the church, and how the current state of things may actually be to the devil’s advantage.  Thought-provoking and sure to ruffle a lot of feathers.

It’s Always Darkest Before the DAWN TREADER from Cinemagogue
Last week, the trailer for the third installment of the Narnia films came out.  It looks amazing.

The Rage Against God from Desiring God
Neo-atheist Christopher Hitchen’s brother Peter has written a book concerning his journey from atheism to faith.  I’m looking forward to reading this one.

Transparency, Reputation,  & Guts Trump Slickness from Vince Antonucci
My buddy Vince shares a snippet from a Seth Godin post for Christians to think about when it comes to church and their Sunday event.

About Aaron

Aaron is a follower of Jesus. He's married to his smokin' hot wife Laura and is the father of three adorable girls. He enjoys a robust cigar, a complex root beer, a good movie, writing, football, thought-provoking books, and rousing discussions about subjects you're not supposed to talk about (like theology and politics). Religious people irritate him (because he once was one). He's on a quest to find the perfect dry rub and sauce for ribs.

    1) i am so TIRED of these 3D releases. i saw Avatar in 3D then made the decision to never do so again, i would rather have the extra 5 bucks in my pocket. i dont care about more depth perception in my movies.

    2) i have not been too disappointed with the other Narnia films, this one looks a bit different than the books though.

    3) how far have we strayed that someone is actually a “church expert on church planting and mission”- ha ha….eh.

  2. Justin Dunn says:

    how can you be the expert on something as liquid as the church world?

  3. Aaron says:

    Yo Dunn,

    I agree with you on 3D. Waste of money. We already perceive visually in 3D. Waste of time and money.

    On Stetzer, the dude’s got a heck of a lot of practical experience in church planting (he’s done it several times himself) and a wealth of knowledge from a bunch of different segments and movements within the realm of American Christianity. Not saying that I agree with everything he says or writes, but his knowledge and expertise, at least on what is happening in the West, are pretty extensive (although I think there are others who have a better grasp on where the church may be going and maybe how to “do it” better–geez I hate that phrase, but it’s late and my brain hurts).
