Pink...???

I'm currently reading the book unChristian - what a new generation really thinks about Christianity ...and why it matters. Long title I know, but this is a pretty stimulating read that forces you to ask some hard questions. I'm asking myself many questions. Not exclusively the four questions the book would indicate should be asked, in the foreword. Nonetheless, I'm asking myself many questions. I will reserve my personal responses for when I am completely done processing these big ideas. I have a couple more really interesting titles to read when I'm finished with this book. Rob Bell's Sex God - Exploring the endless connections between sexuality and spirituality, and Dan Kimball's They like Jesus but not the Church - insights from emerging generations, are just two of the books waiting in reserve. As you can see, there's a lot of stuff going on in my life at the moment.


More importantly though, there's a lot of good stuff going on in my wife, Sola's life. She finally caved. She took the plunge. She bit the bullet. She dunked the cat (I have no idea what that means or even if it's an actual saying but I really like it so...) But I digress. What I was actually trying to tell you is that my wife finally stepped over to the dark side and entered the world of blogging. She's an amazing writer and has the quintessential wry british sense of humor. She is incredibly articulate, profound, insightful, unpretentious, and yes, all the other cliche adjectives you can think of (what did you expect me to say? After all, she is my wife!!!) So please, click on the following hyperlink redefining pink and go over to her blog and show her some love. It would mean the world to me. Thanks guys!

I'm totally annoyed that I didn't come up with that blog title myself!! It's book-worthy - if Sola writes the book, I will read it!

Your wife's site is great.
Rob Bell? On my reading list this summer is Velvet Elvis! Of course, now, I'm the middle of Reconciliation by Benazir Bhutto and I recently just finished The Shack by William P. Young. I love books...Sounds like yours will be interesting as well...

Have you read Emerging Church by Dan Kimball? If not, I suggest reading it before They Like Jesus...It gives some context.

Thea, don't worry, you can invent something else.

Ash, I know they'll be great reads.

Jordan, I haven't read emerging church yet. I just might get a copy of it and read it first.

Hope said...

Thanks for the tip. I'll check out her site.

"Invent" - that sounds so much better than "come up with" - I DO need to invent something!! Hmmm...keep your ear to the ground - whatever it is it's going to be good (I'm about 80% serious and my confidence is growing...)

Joseph said...

Hope, I appreciate the love!

Thea, just keep heading in the right direction. Only 20% to go. :)
