h/t Cartoon BlogI had a rather busy week last week, to put it mildly. A job interview, which was very encouraging but I didn't get offered the position (and I think that was the right decision). Then I almost got short listed for another job and again the feedback on my application was very affirming. In both cases there are record numbers of people applying for jobs. Then a day preparing couples for marriage (with funny videos, questionnaires and talks), and three services on Sunday. Plus the 'normal' job stuff and a melt down because my dad is ill. All of this serves as a rider to say I haven't been in the blogosphere very much and so I may have missed some posts, and I am sorry if I did. These are the posts that I did read that I loved:
1. A New Name - A beautifully written post explaining the descent into anorexia.
2. Simple Massing Priest - An amusing and to-the-point piece about why a Diocese in TEC rejected the Anglican Covenant.
3. An Inch at a Time - Susan has written several good posts this week. I liked this one on the plight of a banner.
4. Liturgy h/t DaviGoss - Please Uncle Rowan, can we have this Covenant instead?
5. Of Course I Could Be Wrong - shocking, but sadly not surprising case of spiritual abuse.
6. Stranger in an even Stranger Land - Gurdur got the scoop as far as I am concerned on the Roman Catholic theologians calling for an end to celibacy.
7. The Church Mouse - statistics on church attendance. I really am a nerd aren't I? I didn't know that about myself before blogging.
8. A year in the life - I love this blog, Sandgirl writes explicitly, poetically and when you read her blog it hurts. She tears down the veil of civility and challenges the oh-so-polite reader.
9. Eliza does very little - This is another blog I love reading that I have discovered lately. She can write about anything - I just like the way she uses language. Plus I think I am a wannabe Eliza in my 20s living in London.
10. Bishop Alan's Blog - For me, this is the cream of the crop this week. Alan talks about equality, I want to make the church wake up and listen to this, it is SO true.
