Here are some resources, connections, or interesting people and places that I find helpful, influential, or meaningful (in no particular order at this time).
Bob Rhodes – a friend and colleague
Hacking Christianity – the Rev. Jeremy Smith is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church who writes a great deal about the UMC in an informative and thought-provoking way
Sojourner’s Magazine – an ecumenical publication that frequently seeks to find a middle way between conservative and liberal Christianity
Sarah Bessey – an author with an interesting voice
Nadia Bolz-Weber – a Lutheran pastor, whose written and spoken voice bridges communities and cultures with humor and striking insights
The Ekklesia Project – an interdenominational community, a “school for subversive friendships,” a group of lay and clergy theologians who share a love for God through the church; check out their pamphlets for some great theological reading
