See What Happens When You're Up Too Late...

Hi! I must apologize for the way this week's postings have been 'disorganized.' It seems that, when you have your archives set to 'weekly', and you're posting up the current weeks articles somewhere in the neighborhood of midnight on a Saturday night, only two of them show up out of the ten that got posted!
I'm sorry for the bad timing of my update this week! The titles of all ten articles are listed under 'Recent Posts' in the left column. Please click on the title to check out the articles.
Specifically, I'd like to point out that we have an Eklektikos exclusive in the article titled, The Power of Love here on the blog this week. It's an essay submitted by one of our readers, Lia Lewis, and it's worth the read!
Again, sorry for the seemingly short list! I'll get an earlier start next week!

Seek and Ye Shall Find...

Our search for truth has deepened and intensified since September 11, 2001. Terrorists in that one day killed approximately 3,000 men, women and children who had not harmed them in any way. Hundreds of others were injured and the emotional lives of thousands were shattered.

Searching for Truth in a World of Confusion

Living as we choose, with utter disregard for absolute truth, leads to anarchy and the collapse of a moral society. It means “every man is doing what is right in his own eyes” and that always produces death and destruction.

Does Diversity Work in the Church?

Martin Luther King Jr. said that 11:00 on Sunday morning is "the most segregated hour in America." Not much has changed since King made that statement. But is this a bad thing?

An Army of Ones

As America has grown more diverse, and not just racially, the church has responded by creating congregations to appeal to specific subcultures. We see not only black congregations and white congregations, but also boomer and postmodern, contemporary and classical, liturgical and spontaneous.
