Pilgrim Pathways: Notes for a Diaspora People

Incarnational Discipleship

From Around the Blogosphere: Good Links

The “new universalism” is given sharp-edged critique by Calvin College philosopher, James K. A. Smith, self-identifying as both Pentecostal and Reformed(!).  Two good rebuttals to Smith are made by Halden Doerge and D. W. Congdon

Bob Cornwell seeks to redeem the “L” word, Liberalism.  Since I consider myself both “evangelical” and “liberal” when proper definituions of each are used, I like such attempts.

Did the Canadian elections, with an unforseen surge in seats picked up by the New Democratic Party just return Steven Harper’s Conservatives to a 3rd term in power as a minority government or will the NDP lead a new Anything-but-Tory coalition with the Liberals and BQ?  If the NDP do move from opposition to a governing coalition, I hope they make wiser choices than UK’s Liberal Democrats have in their minority coalition with the Tories.  I like the NDP and am convinced that if I were ever to become a Canadian, this would be my party–but given the unexpected nature of the results, are they truly PREPARED to govern?

BenMyers has commentary and links to Rowan Williams’ (Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury and a fine theologian, in my opinion) three (3) theological lectures on dimensions of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia books. 

The Women in Theology blog reflects on the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena.

  1. Thanks for this, Michael. I hadn’t looked at Congdon’s blog in a while & there is a lot of good reflection going on there.

    • David is going to be a major theologian, I think.
