Some more stuff that's worth reading

Here are a few more articles, essays, op-eds, etc. that I've found to be worth reading lately:

Scholar Anthea Butler offers good advice on the value of doubt and accountability in religious groups.
Sorry folks, the Rapture is not in the Bible.
A nice reflection on how Facebook can help us to face broken relationships we thought we'd left behind.
A great perspective on homelessness in St. Joseph, MO.
Wow! This is a great example of a progressive church showing Christian hospitality to and allowing dialogue with a far-right protest group. I'm humbled and challenged by their decision to allow dialogue to occur, even though the prospects of the two sides agreeing were dim. Interestingly, a more conservative church in the same community refused to meet with the group.
