Ok this round up is dedicated to Gurdur because he does such excellent round-ups and he has been offline for a week.. which feels a long time. I'll try to do it a bit more in his style.
Church Issues Posts
The nakedpastor illustrates how churches talk-the-talk but then do the opposite in his post 'we welcome short people'.
The Church Mouse talks sense, as usual, in his post 'Church misery guts over royal wedding spoof video'. I recommend that Mouse becomes the chief PR professional in the Church of England and all potentially idiotic decisions about being grumpy with cartwheeling vergers and the like should be given to him for consideration first. This would help with my blood pressure and swearing at the computer screen issues. It is worth consideration....
Benny's Blog highlights how we are a sex mad church. Truly we are - all we want to obsess about is who puts what bit were and whether they are married when they do it. We even have an Anglican Covenant looming to try and sort it out.
A New Name explains what can and can't be said in church... ouch.
Thoughts from Kansas writes an excellent post on atheist tactics entitled '....because we said so'
Bishop Alan writes a truly inspired post entitled 'airbrushing out the women' and then in the comments robustly disallows religion to be an excuse for poor behaviour.
Vic the Vicar writes a very thought provoking post about divorce and made me see things in entirely new ways.
Human Interest Posts:
Lay Angelica has some great advice on what to do and say, reflecting on people's response to her cancer.
Eliza does very little writes a very moving post entitled 'Openness, honesty and T-shirts'. What would your T-shirt be?
Apples of Gold has a bit of a wardrobe crisis and reminds me why I'm glad I have sons rather than daughters.
The Screaming Kettle at Home has a very amusing post entitled 'Top Twenty Five Tuesday: Baffling Search Results that Have Led People to My Blog'
Significant Truths made me laugh and looks at the Church and Masons.
Not as good as Gurdur's round-up - but I quite enjoyed writing it this way...
