It seems that I'm not very faithful to this blogging thing, but I've been inspired by some great bloggers. It's not just a geek thing anymore. I've been pretty captivated lately by a few blogs that have really gotten me thinking.
CHURCH MARKETING SUCKS
I've mentioned one before called Church Marketing Sucks. They have a lot of great thoughts for churches to make them think about how they are perceived by congregants and their communities. I would check it out. I love their peer reviews of potential church literature and websites. While you're at it, check out this hilarious radio spot for St Andrew's Episcopal Church in Birmingham, Alabama.
Another great one is Tony Morgan's blog. He's one of the pastors at Granger Community Church in Granger, Indiana. He posts the weekly stats for Granger, relevant quotes, current trends in church culture, and even some personal thoughts. I love his experience buying an HP all-in-one printer (read here). I was on the floor laughing when he posted photos of some other uses for his failed printer!
Finally, I just started tuning into a blog called The eBay Atheist. Basically, Off The Map ministries hired an atheist offering his services in eBay. They've asked him to visit churches and write up a survey of each one. As of today, he's only visited 4 churches, but his posts are quite thought-provoking. It might make us re-think the way we do some things...
Anyway, I hope you have a chance to visit and digest some of these resources. If you do, I'd love to hear some of your comments. Leave them below so everyone can read them.
