Blog Roll Highlights

Whitney, a "presbyterian minister & missionary living in belfast, northern ireland, values random (and not-so-random) acts of kindness and all things reconciling, tries to appreciate the beauty in each day."  Her blog is Whitney's Glimpses of Grace: moments of the holy in everyday.  It's just so nice to read lists of happiness rather than complaints!

William (Beau) Weston, blogs at Gruntled Center: Faith and Family for Centrists.  Weston is a sociology professor who has been studying happiness.  Interesting posts abound, including his latest: Inequality Makes Rich Liberals Unhappy.  Worth a read!

Steven Hurtz blogs at
Gulf Shores Steven’s Weblog: Rooted in faith, open to the Spirit, curious about everything. His sermons will keep you busy for a while; I got a little carried away reading this week's "A Funny, or not-so-funny Question" [John 5:1-9]. Snippet:
There is no such thing as a perfectly healthy person. All of us here to day have our unhealthy areas; the more in touch with ourselves, the more honest we are, the more we are aware of just how unhealthy we are. Do we want Jesus to change us? What if it is difficult? What if it hurts?

Happy Monday!

I met Whitney when we were both Small Group Leaders at the Montreat Youth Conferences in 2008. Glad to see her part of this group!

I'm very slowly working my way through the blog roll in alphabetical order, just a few recently updated - and not too recently added - blogs at a time, on weeks when we have no new members to introduce. :-)
