Congratulations to Crystal St. Marie Lewis, who received her Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, D.C. today. She blogs here (Window on Religion) and tweets here and is well worth reading.
Be sure to see the comments, below. The group of Unitarian Universalist bloggers on Facebook have been meditating on a common questions, one of which is “why do you blog?” Some of the reasons I blog are predictable: to muse aloud, to keep notes for later use or to promote something-or-other. It is not a… Continue reading Why I blog
ObscuraCam is a phone app for Android to help citizen-journalists obscure faces in crowd photographs and videos, say, in undemocratic societies. It might be helpful in building your church’s website. You can use it to hide the faces of minors and other vulnerable persons, should your church’s policies require or recommend it. Two examples: Your… Continue reading ObscuraCam to help build church web sites
There have been some very good “follow along with the blogger” blogs out there. Continental road trips by bike. Eating on a foot-stamp budget. Recording very low consumption. Reducing one’s possessions to so many items. Recording every bit of plastic used: a personal favorite. I thought of such an idea. Not for me, but perhaps… Continue reading If I was going to liveblog my life…
Blogs come and go, but I miss very few of those that vanish. Donald Wilson — a Unitarian Universalist, a handy fellow, kilt-wearer and Michigander — was one. Following him on Twitter wasn’t quite enough. But good news: he’s back, with a hope of old posts being restored. Do encourage him. Coffee, Beer Geek, Repeat.

But in the meantime, enjoy the writings of Anglican priest and blogger Edward Green at Future Shape of the Church His work on lay ministry and the appropriate role of liturgy in rural parishes — which have some parallels to struggling… Continue reading Blog: Future Shape of the Church
After going to D.C.’s commercial market for discounted produce, I dropped by the Occupy DC (or is it OccupyDC?) to drop off some onions and check out the vibe. It’s much larger and matured than last Saturday, when I tried to attend a march and rally with friend, Unitarian Universalist minister and new blogger Peter… Continue reading Today’s visit to the Occupy DC encampment
Greetings: I’m looking for blogs written by or for independent theological universalists of the “UR” (universal restoration) or “Bible students” variety. I’ve noticed a strong tendency towards conferences there, and a conspicuous use of the Concordant version. I’m trying to better understand the fellowship (or fellowships). Links in the comments would be helpful. Forthcoming conferences,… Continue reading Blogs about universal restoration, from “Bible students”
Dear friend, colleague and Unitarian Universalist minister Victoria Weinstein is on her way to that “sceptred isle” to lead worships, workshops and other meetings. I hope she’s able to work in some milky tea, mash and pie. Most of her time will be in and around London, but there are other events, and if you’re… Continue reading Victoria Weinstein — in England
After more than two years’ of hiatus, Unitarian Universalist minister, newly minted Doctor of Ministry and blogger (Beauty Tips for Ministers) Victoria Weinstein has resumed her first and signature blog, PeaceBang. Readers: go forth and enjoy.
