Favourite Posts (from other bloggers)

What follows is a list of some of my favourite blog posts. They are not the favourite ones that I have written though I am sure I could make a list of those. They are rather my favourite blog posts from other bloggers within the ever-expanding world of the blogosphere. This list is divided for the moment into a list of blog posts written by Unitarian Universalists or about Unitarian Universalism, a list of blog posts written by Christians or about Christianity, a list of blog post written about anti-bullying and a list of blog posts on other topics. I have also indicated to which blog they are from. As well blog posts marked with G are about gender and ones marked with MC are about missional church or missionalism. A good explanation of missional church can be found here and this explains well its expression within Unitarian Universalisim. It should be noted that this list will keep expanding as I read more of the great blog posts out there. So keep checking back periodically to see what I have added.

  1. I am honored to be on your list. Thank you for your push to help those who have dealt with the long-term effects of bullying.


  2. Thank you for making this list. I see a lot of “friends” along side new faces. I appreciate the resource, and I am humbled to be included. I don’t know that I feel I belong on the list at all, but being at the top of the page is truly humbling.


  3. Thomas thanks for the thanks. About being at the top of the page, well it is only do to your blogs name beginning with an earlier letter of the alphabet then the others on the “Posts by Unitarian Universalists or about Unitarian Universalism” list.


    • I did notice that part, but it is still a LOT of pressure!
      Again, thank you! The appreciation makes it worthwhile to put myself out there. I am on a strange and personal journey, and it isn’t always easy to share so much of it. I know that I am not completely alone (isn’t the internet wonderful?), and that my words help others by comforting them, challenging them, or just giving them new words for ideas that they’ve been wrestling with. That is what has made this both a labor of love and a duty to those who might otherwise feel more lonely in their own search for truth and meaning.
      We need people like you who not only contribute to the discussion directly, but also help facilitate all of us finding each other and remembering that almost none of our problems or concerns are truly unique.
