In the past couple of months some excellent bloggers have linked to this site. Here’s a selection,
Dress-Down Friday: Bolt, Naomi Klein and Coffee – Wess is one of my favourite bloggers and it was great to see him pick up on the review of Bolt. I believe it’s really important for parents to critically read the films their kids watch and talk them about what social roles the films suggest. As always, Wess has collected a lot of great blogposts in his regular roundup, so do check them out.
Eight Years in Eight Minutes – Paul has picked up on the CNN exposition of the Bush presidency that I linked to a few weeks back.
Warren and Lowery – Mary was on the spot watching the inauguration and I was a million miles away watching it on TV. But, we still had similar feelings about the prayers offered on that day. BTW, Mary’s blog, Tensegrities, really is a must-read for anyone in theological or religious education!
Ol’ Rick Did Alright – Mike had quite a different reaction to Rick Warren’s Inauguration Day prayer. That’s part of the beauty of blogging – the way you get different views from different contexts “converging” on a topic. Mike’s blog is really honest, down to earth and a good read for church musicians everywhere.
Spirit of Australia – Matt set up a SynchroBlog on Spirituality and Australia Day and for anyone interested in that intersection his post and the others in the collection are well worth reading.
Theology and Firefly – Stephen also linked to the same blogpost on Whedon and Theology and bundled it up with more excellent links on Firefly and Serenity. Great stuff!
Commitments for the New Year – Finally, the AJS Opinion blog picked up on my New Year’s resolution post; especially the idea of clearing space for creativity.
xmas draft – Bob picked up my post on there being more than one reason for the season. That post actually got attention in a number of places, including EmergentKiwi (with a great connection to the lectionary reading from Daniel and the story of the Magi!), Church.Nu and Moomin Light and The Mystical Limpet.
Ira Glass on Storytelling – Duncan picked up on the Ira Glass videos I reposted (thanks again Garr!). I’ve re-watched those clips a number of time since posting them and they are perhaps the most challenging and inspiring stuff I’ve stumbled on in the last year.
“Everything is more compelling when you talk like a human being, when you talk like yourself.”
Best blogs of 2008 – Finally, Jason paid me a huge compliment by listing this blog as one of his favourites for “…commentary on culture that is outside the usual blog platitudes.” As someone who doesn’t win a lot of popularity contests (well, none actually), that sort of thing means a lot and is terribly humbling. I hope to continue doing a good job with this blog in 2009.
