My friend Dan at “Some Church Stuff” (formerly “The Ekklesia in Southern Maine”) is revamping his website. He’s changed the name to broaden his topics. He’s also using a simple, clean design.
Yesterday, we talked about why he was writing for this site again. He said that all of these things were running through his mind, and he wanted to write about them. We wants to put them out there and see how they fly in the “real world.”
Now, Dan might eventually write some kind of exegesis or expositional post, but I’m thinking those will be few and far between. Instead, Dan is more of a cultural critic… but not just any culture. Nope. He’s a “church culture critic.”
His posts are sarcastic – and you know that I love sarcasm. But, some of you do not like sarcasm. So, it would probably be better for you to stay away from his blog. However, if you can stand a little (or a lot of) sarcasm, and can use it to examine your own life and motives, then I think Dan’s writings can be very helpful.
His first post was called “Just Ignore Me.”
But, his second post is even better. It’s called “Playing Games.” You should really read that post. In this post, Dan describes a “game” that sounds all too familiar.
By the way, Dan tells me that he welcomes feedback… even if you disagree with him.
