This month – links about singleness

August 8, 2008

Some of us HATE it! Some of us don’t mind and see it as a passing phase. Others may actually be fighting a calling to devote their lives to God alone.

Either way – why not investigate what the blogosphere has to offer in the way of illumination….

Greenbelt glorious greenbelt

September 24, 2007

Greenbelt takes place at Cheltenham Racecourse every August bank Holiday. It’s a long running Christian arts festival which is more ecumenical and alternative than others, for instance Spring Harvest.

One of the Ordinary Eve team’s particular favourites this year was Beer and Hymns in The Jesus Arms an organic beer tent on site. If you missed it or if you caught it but just want to be reminded of the glory then here it is.

Much praising – much joy. If you feel uncomfortable then remember the wedding at Cana and consider the volume of wine that God provided when the guests were already half way through the feast…

Christian mysticism

September 13, 2007

Maybe you would value a new approach to Christianity or maybe you have had a “mystical” experience of God and have no idea where to go with that, having no Church to turn to or no one in Church who understands. Perhaps you have friends who claim to have had different faith experiences to you and you are wondering what to do with it all.

Fear not, Rev. Brian Robertson runs a blog called christianmystics.com which can explain what Christian mysticism i, how it relates to traditions (such as evangelical, protestant, catholic etc) and how you can find out about the mystical tradition in Christianity – which has a long and beautiful tradition.

Why not start with this great podcast he has also done. God bless you.

Prayer on t’interweb

September 4, 2007

The 24/7 prayer web site is an interesting place to visit. The movement hs been referred to as ‘modern day monasticism’, but its purpose is highly specific. It aims to turn the tide of youth culture back to Christ through creating a linked prayer movement. Groups commit to pray continuously for a period of time and then pass on the “baton” to other groups across the globe.

You can post prayer equests and you can also add your own groups or simply pick up prayer requests from others.

Questions for atheists

August 28, 2007

Maybe it’s time that atheists started to answer some of our questions, after all this is supposed to be a dialogue isn’t it? Maybe I got that wrong.

Anyway, this guy has some really though provoking ones. He doesn’t ask anyone for proof but he is clear and challenging. check it out!

What’s your spiritual style?

August 14, 2007

Appreciating your spiritual style, and appreciating how  that might be different from other people not only gives you a way of understanding others’ differences but also allows you to see what makes you special to God and how you might serve him in new ways.

But how to work out what your style is? Fear not! We have been intrepidly searching the internet and come up with this this tool!

The Sacred Pathways Worship Style Assessment.

Go for it.

The Devil has all the best music…

Ok, maybe he doesn’t, but there’s certainly a lot of great music out that that’s not specifically Christian (Jerusalem aside).

So I would like to recommend to you this marvellous site/experience – Musicovery. Find some new music in a beautifully visual wa, and hear some random old favourites you had forgotten.

A life of purpose

July 26, 2007

Rick Warren is the pastor of SaddleBack Church, and the writer of the book The Purpose  Driven Life. The book is great and if you want to get a taster why not check out his talk at the TED talks. It requires video but it’s very enlightening.

You can then look at Richard Dawkins talk on Militant Atheism if you like. Or maybe not…
