More Joining the Respectful Conversation

Awesome new blog for the webring this week:
Conversation in Faith Weblog: A place for thoughtful, respectful discussion.
by: Hello, I am Nancy Janisch. I am a transplanted Kansan living in western Michigan. I spent 20 years working as a small animal and emergency practice veterinarian and then I went to seminary. So as you might guess, I have an interest in the area of science and religion. I am also interested in the larger topic of how people of faith interact with the world and what informs and shapes our faith.

As the title suggests, this blog is intended to encourage thoughtful, respectful conversation about faith. Respectful conversation sometimes seems to be a forgotten art in today’s world but I hope we can practice it here in this corner of the blogging world. The point of this blog is discussion, not diatribe and not debate. I don’t think that I have all the answers, and I won’t assume that you do either. But I do think by talking together we can all learn. So I invite you to respond to my posts. I hope we will ask each other questions, share our views and think together about various topics. I am a Christian and that will be evident in my writing, but I hope that people from a variety of faith traditions will feel welcome to participate here.

But wait! There's more! In fact, there are several blogs by a blogger called Castaway:

CovenantStuff: Sunday messages from Covenant Presbyterian Church, Los Angeles (Westchester), CA.

TakeFive: Politics and faith - not always sure of the interface, but working at it - with Jesus and justice at the heart of the effort.

Thoughts: Inspiring thoughts for the congregation.

Bright and Darkened Lands: An interactive lectionary site to offer comment.

Finally, a question posted to the blog that I'm tossing out there for all of you to consider:

We are just starting our search for a new Associate Pastor. Any suggestions from the bloggers out there on ways we could post online to spread the word outside of our normal Presbytery search? Thanks!
