Easy Podcasting

Apple just released iTunes 4.9 yesterday. This version is updated to support Podcasting. Already tried the podcasting and Apple makes it very easy to import a feed . They have always been the masters of drag and drop. Just get the URL feed for the podcast you want to subscribe to and drag it to your podcast playlist... that easy. They did it once again, Mac simplicity.

Here are some feeds about the Emergent Church I have tried so far.

Something I just discovered was a link to a list of different blogs dealing with all things emerging.

I will state as a disclaimer I do not necessarily agree or disagree with any or all of these authors. Peace out...Kris

I have been following the white rabbit for a while now. But I now have in front of me ... A choice

"This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill: the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill: you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."

I took he red pill. Life is different, and oh yea.. the rabbit hole is deep. I'm still learning about life where I am now. Every Sunday I get jacked in. I get to see my friends. I love them, but some of them don't want the choice, they never even cared to follow the white rabbit. Others took the blue pill and believe whatever they want. The people that took the red pill stand out, we recognize each other after just one conversation. They still jack in for the same reason that I do. To find more potentials.

I love The Church, (God's people) however there are some problems. I tired of the masquerade party. It is about time we take off the mask and let people in. We have to stop guarding the skeletons in our closet and be free of the crap we fear the most. Being found out as sinners.

I Want Money... lots and lots of Money

This article (not by me) says a mouthful of truth, some of which is hard to swallow. I think we as a church need to rethink some of what we are teaching people. What do you think?

The Grand ole' Duke of York

This gets a little personal I hope this does not make you nervous, or God forbid hurt your opinion of me! LOL

One of the hardest things for me to do is to get up after I fall. Generally I am pretty good at anything that I do but, when I fall I fall hard. I know plenty of people like me. It's kind of like "When your up your up and when your down your down but when your only half way up your neither up or down". This describes a lot of people, usually us people that have a more creative or artsie side to our personality. We have to work hard at being balanced. I don't take getting crushed well (who does?) I have to work hard at getting up if people saw me fall. When I get embraced it turns me into a monster, and I react harshly.

When this happens to me I must try to do the thing that is Christlike. Just cowboy up instead of laying there and bleeding. My pride or ego is the thing that always hurts the most when things like this happen. God has his way of teaching us. I pray to learn what I have to soon so I can get on to the next chapter in my textbook and ultimately my next lesson. KLB

Life and Death

My mother died a little over 4 years ago. It was the hardest thing I have ever endured. I cried for a long time. My son Josiah was born 6 days ago. I laughed, I was overjoyed, I could hardly contain myself. Then I started to think of the pain this child would have to endure to live in this world. I thought of the heartache, sickness, and ultimately death he would be acquainted with. Then I was reminded of something I read once that a church father said a long time ago. He said "We should cry when some one is born and rejoice when they die". What the heck? That made no sense to me then. But now.... I get it. Life is hard and wonderful all at the same time. What joys we do have, we should enjoy them. When someone dies (in Christ) we should rejoice.
