Burnside Writers Collective
Mission
The Burnside Writers Collective is an online magazine for Christians looking for a connection with the world outside of franchise Christianity.

Vision
This is where we detail our high-minded principles. This is where we mention Truth and Beauty. This is where we tell you we want to introduce you to great art, stand up to hypocrisy, and publish thoughtful, world-shifting writing with a Christian perspective.
We believe in all those things. More even. We do want to shift the world. We believe Christians have a role that no one else can play in the story of the world. We want creativity and thoughtfulness to be Christian values again.
In the end, though, we want to publish writing we enjoy reading. That’s what it comes down to.

A Time To Laugh | He has made everything beautiful in His time. | Camille Lewis
I’m a happy wife to Grant and a gentle, work-at-home mom to my sweet children and six babies in Heaven. I am also an independent scholar, historian, published author, and freelance journalist — what is now called a “nontraditional academic.” I like to knit, smock, bead, scrap, read, and, of course, blog.

Brehm Center: creative integration of worship, theology, & arts in culture. - Brehm Center
Founded in 2001, and named after Fuller Seminary Board of Trustee members William and Delores Brehm; the Brehm Center’s mission is to revitalize the church and culture through the arts. We believe that God is the original artist, the first Creator. By engaging expert faculty, world-class artists, and visiting scholars to investigate the theory and practice of making art in ministry, we hope to inspire a new generation of culture-changers for Jesus’ name.
Often described as an “evangelical think tank”, the Brehm Center and its initiatives sponsor research, community outreach, and integrated education in worship, theology and the arts. The Brehm Center does not operate as a separate school at Fuller. Rather, a Brehm Center Emphasis can be pursued in tandem with any current Fuller Seminary Degree program in the schools of Theology, Psychology, or Intercultural Studies.

The Screaming Kettle | a blog by David Nilsen
My name is David, and I’m a 29 year old father and husband living in the small town of Greenville, Ohio. I more or less fit the bill of the trendy Christian bohemian – I love indie rock; I take deep meaning from classic and independent films; I find more encouragement and truth in the writings of Donald Miller and Anne Lamott than John MacArthur or Al Mohler; I hold my theological beliefs with an open hand; I take environmental and social justice issues very seriously (but of course don’t do enough about them). Your dad has never heard of my favorite beer breweries. Etcetera. You probably know the drill.
Recurring characters you will read a lot about here are my pretty-and-witty wife Lyndie and my daughter Yoselin (Yosi), whom we adopted from Guatemala at the age of 8 months in April, 2008.
I currently work a totally unsatisfying job as an I.T. Specialist at a bank, and also sell used and rare books on the side. I hope to make this my full time source of income in the next year or two by opening a brick and mortar shop on the charming downtown main street of our little burg.
I’ve been writing since childhood, and hope to publish a book before I’m too old to be obnoxious about it. I write creative non-fiction, poetry, fiction, and film reviews, though mostly only that first category makes it onto this blog.
I love to hear from readers, so feel free to use any of the following means to get in touch with me!

Stitching up the Seams | on every broken promise that [our bodies] couldn't keep. | Stitching Seams
Stitching Up the Seams was created to help me work through issues created in part by fundamentalist Christianity.
*****
Hi. I’m Stitching Seams. Feel free to call me Stitch – or if you’d rather an actual name that’s still not mine (anonymous blog and all that) you can call me Joanna or Jo.
I’m a 25-year-old wife, daughter, and sister who grew up quite conservatively. While I’ve not left my faith, I’ve experienced sexual, spiritual, mental, and emotional abuse that has affected me to the point that I simply need an outlet where I can systematically explain what happened to me from my perspective.
Please understand. This is my story. My blog. Where my memory is fuzzy, I will say so. I will speak quite poorly of some people, even close friends – not out of anger or bitterness, but out of a proper understanding of their behavior towards me at various times. I am not perfect. I will not gloss over my mistakes, but neither will I apologize for them. I speak plainly, openly, and honestly – a trait that has gotten me into trouble more times than I can count. But I can assure you – with me, what you see and read is exactly what you get.

Brambonius' blog in english | I am a stranger on this planet
who am I? You might call me Brambonius, like some people do (mostly online) but my real name is Bram, and I’m from belgium, a very secular post-catholic little kingdom by the sea in Earope. My religious background is more pentecostal/evangelical, with a interest in all other branches of Christianity, and even more… I’m part of a vineyard Church.
I’m born around the time when John Lennon died, and I’m married and living in Antwerp, in the second-biggest city of Belgium. I like weird music, cooking with wild plants, and meeting people… My blog in Dutch can be found here (http://brambonius.wordpress.com/), and I also have a bilingual blog about plants and gardening called Hortus Brambonii (http://hortusbrambonii.wordpress.com/).
If my English is not perfect, forgive me and keep in mind that I’m not a native speaker.
shalom

The Boy with the Thorn in His Side | Musings on Faith, Culture, And Life. | Travis Mamone
I'm not very good at introducing myself, but here is goes. My name is Travis Mamone. I live in Easton, MD. I work at a public library by day, and a freelance writer by night. I've contributed to a number of different websites and publications throughout the years, including Relevant Magazine, Burnside Writers Collective, Indie Ink, and The Upper Room. I also used to co-host the Something Beautiful podcast.
As far as what this blog is all about, well, let me begin by saying what this blog is NOT:
-This blog is NOT a guide to dating, sex (specifically how to avoid it before marriage), and surviving your twenties.
-This blog is NOT a political blog where I try to fit God into a tiny little political box. As far as I know, Jesus is not a liberal, a conservative, a libertarian, an anarchist, a socialist, a capitalist, etc.
-This blog does NOT have any cute cat pictures. I like cats, though.
-This blog is NOT just a "gay Christian blog." As a bisexual man, I do talk about LGBT-related issues a lot. But not in every single post.
So what is The Boy With The Thorn In His Side all about?
This blog is the story of my ever-evolving faith. There are times when God is so clear to me that I can hardly take it, and other times when He doesn't make a darn bit of sense. Either way, I hope you'll join me in my journey, and feel free to share your story with me.
And as far as the title, yes I like the Smiths! But the phrase "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side" more as a reference to the thorn in Paul's flesh. In my weakness, that's when I can feel God's strength the most.

Homepage Content | Believe Out Loud
Believe Out Loud is an online network that empowers Christians to work for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality. Reaching nearly one million individuals a week, we elevate the people and places where Christianity and LGBT justice intersect.
Through our new-media platform, friends and allies gather, share, grow, build community and take action. If you are new to LGBT inclusion and Christianity, we are a safe space to learn about how others tie their faith to LGBT equality. Everyone is invited to our table.
Publicly launched in 2009, we have worked to support conflicted Christians and advance the decades-long movement for LGBT-inclusion within mainline Protestantism. Today, Believe Out Loud represents the breadth of Christianity – from Catholics to Evangelicals, Baptists to Presbyterians, to individuals who are Christian but have no formal faith community. We are also home to atheists, agnostics and those from other religious traditions who share our passion for LGBT equality. Our members are united behind a simple pledge: to stand up for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in our churches, our communities, our schools and our workplaces.
Break the silence.
Join the movement.
Believe Out Loud.

Working my way from fundamentalism to freedom (without losing my mind)

Thank you for visiting my blog!
In it, I tell stories, and I stand on soapboxes.
I call out and I call to action.
I try to figure out who God is.
I attempt to reconcile my Christian faith with my feminist politics.

Welcome readers!
My name is Sarah Moon, and I am a writer and student. I am currently attending Bowling Green State University in Ohio, pursuing a degree in Women’s Studies.

Dianna E. Anderson: Faith and Feminism
Dianna Anderson is a 26 year old writer living in Chicago, IL. She has a Master of the Arts in English from Baylor University and a Bachelor of the Arts in theology and philosophy from the University of Sioux Falls. Her MA thesis was done on the very nerdy but very fun topic of Harry Potter (and if you ever want to engage her on a debate as to whether or not it’s “real literature,” email her. She’ll win.)
She grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and is the daughter of two wonderful parents and the sister to two older brothers. Her oldest brother, MJ, has Down Syndrome, but lives on his own in Sioux Falls and works at a local hotel. Her other brother, Marc, is married to a wonderful lady named Carrie and is the father of the world’s cutest baby (seriously, no baby can match this little girl). Marc works as a pastor of a large church in the small town of Huron, South Dakota.
She is also a huge nerd. Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Narnia (along with almost anything CS Lewis), Torchwood, Sherlock – if it’s on BBC America, chances are I’m watching. Except for The Tudors. That show is just stupid – Henry the Eighth was a very large man and not at all sexy. He likely had syphilis. That ain’t pretty.
…Anyway.
Welcome to the blog! Any questions? Feel free to email!

Enact | Reflections on the Drama of Faith
Enact. An invitation and a challenge.
The invitation comes from God, the Author of existence. Repent and believe that God wrote and directs this drama of life and we do not.
The challenge is not just to believe, but to participate in the drama in a way that pleases the Author. What counts is faith enacted through love.
This blog is a space to reflect on this invitation and challenge. It represents faith seeking performative understanding.

Faith Forward — Voices from the Mainline, Progressive and Emerging Church
Welcome to Faith Forward, the group blog of the Progressive Christian Portal at Patheos.com. Our hope is to create an online space for a wide variety of forward-thinking voices from the mainline, progressive and emergent church around the conversations that are shaping the future of the Church.
We are pastors, scholars, youth ministers, sacred artists, spiritual directors, laypeople, parents and youth — all seeking to express some piece of the glorious mystery of what it is to live faithfully as a Christian in a multi-faith world. We’ll be hosting conversations on the changing church landscape, transforming theology, spirituality, preaching, faith and culture, faith and politics, religion and science, interfaith dialogue, movies, the arts and sports.
Our faith is nothing if it’s not alive and incarnate in the world. We hope the conversations we’re hosting will inspire you to be a more alive and gracious person of faith in this rapidly changing world. Come back often and join a discussion that inspires you, or raises a question for you. And if you’d like to add your voice to this conversation, contact Portal Manager Deborah Arca at darca@patheos.com. Blessings!

Comment Magazine | Cardus
Comment magazine serves Christian leaders and culture makers with rooted, fresh ideas for the faithful practice of North American public life. Leaning on 2000 years of Christian thought, we seek a renewed social architecture - "not new wine into old wine-skins, but old wine in new wineskins for festive drinking" (Calvin Seerveld, "Footprints in the Snow").
Comment works to:
read the Bible in public
love faithful institutions
prophesy, not parrot social relevance
pursue proximate justice
recover the lost logic of church
Comment is the first principles journal of Cardus, a think tank dedicated to the renewal of North American social architecture. We publish online essays, reviews, and opinions, as well as a print edition.

CIVA | Christians in the Visual Arts
Serious Art. Serious Faith.
Christians in the Visual Arts exists to explore and nurture the relationship between the visual arts and the Christian faith. Founded in 1979, the organization’s longstanding vision is to help artists, arts pastors, collectors, critics, designers, historians, and videographers explore the profound relationship between art and faith. With this as a point of beginning, CIVA’s broad range of conferences, exhibits, programs, and publications exists to help the art and faith movement flourish both in the Church and in culture.
CIVA encourages Christians in the visual arts to develop their particular callings to the highest professional level possible; to learn how to deal with specific problems in the field without compromising our faith and our standard of artistic endeavor; to provide opportunities for sharing work and ideas; to foster intelligent understanding, a spirit of trust, and a cooperative relationship between those in the arts, the Church, and culture; and ultimately, to establish a Christian presence within the secular art world.

“We have neither the Western Christendom of the past nor the secular, religionless society that was predicted for the future. We have something else entirely.” — Tim Keller
“For no one who wholeheartedly shares in a given sensibility can analyze it. He can only, whatever his intention, exhibit it. To name a sensibility, to draw its contours and to recount its history, requires a deep sympathy modified by revulsion.” — Susan Sontag

香港基督徒學會 | Hong Kong Christian Institute
緣 起
九七前,香港經歷巨大的轉變,因此需要社會各階層人士的參與和貢獻,作為基督徒更要積極參與建設社會,與普羅大眾站在一起,勇敢地表達發乎良知的意願與香港人攜手共同建立一個更公義、民主、和尊重人權的社會。由於建制教會在牧養和社會服務方面背負了沉重的包袱, 以致無法有效地回應當前會的需要;有鑑於此,一百二十位教牧同工和信徒領袖於八八年六月以個人身分,發起成立「香港基督徒學會」,為香港教會提供一個更靈活的架構,以回應時代的挑戰,為教會的更新和社會的建設而獻出一分力量。

香港處境
香港回歸後,經歷金融風暴,貧富懸殊加劇,市民參與政府決策之間日益縮窄,人大釋法令法治受嚴重衝擊,凝聚民間力量(包括教會)擴闊公民參與的空間, 更形重要。

目 標
凝聚關心香港的基督徒,一同為香港教會與香港前途作出貢獻。

功 能
作為一個基督徒中心,協助基督徒實踐和反省其信仰。
作為一個基督徒交換經驗與意見的場地。
作為一個前線基督徒/基督徒群體的支援系統。
作為一個超宗派的神學團契,為教會和基督徒尋覓使命路向,並 發展適切本港實況的神學思想。
作為一個資料中心,一方面向世界各地基督徒群體報導本地實況;另一方面則向本港基督徒介紹世界各地的教會動向和神學思潮。
作為一個基督徒促進人權、民主與公義的標記。

因此,问道所关注的既有教会问题和神学问题,也有社会公共问题;不仅回应中国教会的种种挑战和问题,特别是神学讨论的需要,也积极回应剧烈变革中的中国社会问题。
因此,问道试图从不同的学科角度,社会科学、人文与艺术、自然科学来展开深入的研究和讨论,表达圣经和教会的立场,回应种种思想潮流和文化实践。
来吧,我们一起登山!

Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is working to restore the strength and integrity of the Presbyterian Church (USA)'s witness to Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior, by helping individual Presbyterians develop a consistent Reformed Christian worldview.
Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is committed to the restoration of Reformed theology as taught in Scripture and expressed in the Confessions, in the lives of individual Presbyterians and in the Church. To affirm the Christian faith is necessarily to reject all false ideologies. The First Commandment carries both a commitment to the One true Lord God and a rejection of false gods, "I am the Lord your God,...you shall have no other gods before me." To commit to the Lord God and reality as he has defined it, without also rejecting false gods and their worldview is to unite the worship of the living God with idols.
Therefore Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is committed to promoting the doctrines of Reformed Christian faith and their worldview implications by contrasting them with the beliefs of false religions and their distorted worldviews.
Presbyterians for Faith, Family and Ministry is convinced that an obedient understanding of family and ministry can only grow out of a faith in Jesus Christ that is based on Scripture and the Confessions.

Five Sided Christian | James Miller
I decided to name my Christian blog Five Sided Christian because the number five in Scripture symbolises "grace" which is absolutely foundational to my Christian doctrine and lifestyle and so is entirely appropriate for the kind of Christianity I believe in.
The number five also ties in with the Five Solas of the Reformation which teach doctrines close to my heart:
Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) / Sola Fide (Faith Alone) / Sola Gratia (Grace Alone) / Solus Christus (Christ Alone) / Soli Deo Gloria (God's Glory Alone)
I have chosen five key adjectives to describe the focus of my kind of Christianity:
Evangelical / Reformational / Missional / Social / Political
*****
I am a Scottish Christian from Glasgow, a husband, a father, a poet and novelist, a law graduate, a Project Manager in a translation company, an amateur theologian and member of the Church of Scotland, a collector of classical and jazz CDs, a pianist, a lover of good food and a keen reader of most types of fiction including crime, spy and political thrillers.

Early Church Fathers eBooks Collection
The Early Church Fathers were early and influential theologians, eminent Christian teachers and great bishops. Their scholarly works were used as a precedent for centuries to come. The term is used of writers and teachers of the Church, not necessarily "saints", though most are honored as saints in the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Anglican Churches, as well as in some other Christian groups and are generally recognized as Church Fathers.
Apostolic Fathers: The earliest Church Fathers, (within two generations of the Twelve apostles of Christ) are usually called the Apostolic Fathers since they were taught directly by the twelve. Important Apostolic Fathers include: Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, and Polycarp of Smyrna.
Greek Fathers: Those who wrote in Greek are called the Greek (Church) Fathers. Important Greek Fathers include: Clement of Rome, Irenaeus of Lyons, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Athanasius of Alexandria, John Chrysostom, Cyril of Alexandria, the Cappadocian Fathers (Basil of Caesarea, Gregory Nazianzus, Peter of Sebaste, Gregory of Nyssa), Maximus the Confessor, and John of Damascus.
Latin Fathers: Those fathers who wrote in Latin are called the Latin (Church) Fathers. Important Latin Fathers include: Tertullian, Cyprian of Carthage, Hilary of Poitiers, Ambrose of Milan, Jerome of Stridonium, Augustine of Hippo, Gregory the Great, and Isidore of Seville.
A PDF collection of 242 eBooks about the Early Church Fathers. eBooks are sorted on publisher's name.

owen strachan | gospel calculus, with some whiz-bang
I am Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History at Boyce College in Louisville, Kentucky. At Boyce, I have the privilege of teaching the full range of both systematic theology and church history. I also teach for The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (for example, an elective course on Fundamentalism & Evangelicalism in summer 2012).
I’m a contributing writer for The Gospel Coalition, a blog columnist for Credo magazine, a contributor to Project TGM, and a fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Ecclesial Theology. From 2008-10, I was the full-time Managing Director of the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Associate Director of the Jonathan Edwards Center at TEDS.
I earned a PhD in Theological Studies (Historical Theology) under Douglas Sweeney at TEDS from 2008-11, writing on Billy Graham, Harold Ockenga, and the mid-twentieth century re-enchantment of the evangelical mind. From 2005-07, I was the Editorial Assistant to Southern Seminary President Al Mohler, working for him as I completed an MDiv in Biblical & Theological Studies. Before that, I worked on the federal political level, serving the Bush White House in the U. S. Department of State. I have also worked on the state level for the Commissioner of the Maine Department of Labor.
I interned at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC and wrote for 9Marks. I graduated from Bowdoin College with an AB in History in 2003 and am from the coast of Maine. A member of Kenwood Baptist Church, I am married to the lovely Bethany and am the father of two sweet little kids. A hip hop aficionado and player of pickup basketball, I’ve cut a rap cd (no, seriously).
Because words matter, I have published six books and have written for publications like The Atlantic, First Things, Christianity Today, and the Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology.

I Am a Son of God | Wrestling with Divine Things | Jason Oliver Evans
I am Jason Oliver Evans. I am a Philly native, now living in Atlanta, GA. I graduated from the Divinity School of Duke University with a Master of Divinity degree. Currently, I am a student in the Master of Theology program at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. My research interests include modern theology, especially theologies of Scripture and theological hermeneutics. I’m a life long gourmand (foodie). I am a hopeless bibliophile. I also love to study communication and culture, African American history, religion and culture, U.S. politics, news media, the ancient world, and Holy Scripture and the classical theological traditions of the Church. I’m journeying through life with a song in my heart.

Center for Excellence in Preaching | Calvin Theological Seminary
The Center for Excellence in Preaching was founded at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2004 under the leadership of then-Seminary President Neal Plantinga and with Interim Co-Directors John Witvliet and Kathy Smith. As the Center–and particularly the Center’s website–took shape, other key leaders and developers included Wilbert Van Dyk, Howard Vanderwell, Nathan, Bierma, Duane Kelderman, and Mary Brasser. In July 2005 Scott Hoezee was hired as the Center’s first full-time Director and since then, the Center has continued to expand its website offerings as well as continuing education seminars for pastors. Now entering its second decade of ministry, the Center for Excellence in Preaching is grateful to have become a regular stop for preachers in search of good sermon resources on the internet as well as a popular place to apply for conferences and seminars like the annual Symposium on Worship, the Preachers’ Oasis, and Imaginative Reading for Creative Preaching. The Center is grateful for the support of Calvin Seminary as well as the support of our many donors who make this work possible by their generous contributions to this ongoing ministry.

Graceway Media | Magnify the Message
Church Resources, Graceway Media offers thousands of presentations with stills, illustrations, and sermon content to jump start your service!
*****
Graceway Media is an online design resource for the creative church
Graceway Media began in 2006 as PowerPoint Sermons, providing sermon titles and designs. The goal was to assist pastors with the presentation of their sermon, giving them quality designs and a selection to choose from. Since then, our passion for helping churches preach, teach and present the Gospel has led us to move beyond sermons and include designs for worship, specific ministries, special events, holidays and more to help the church with all aspects of design needs.
With all that we offer, PowerPoint Sermons didn't quite fit anymore and we changed our name to Graceway Media. So why the name "Graceway"? As you know, we want to create media that magnifies the message of Jesus Christ. His message is one of "grace" and He is the "way". We realized bringing the two words together encompassed our overall mission.
*****
Now that we have over 10,000 graphics that range from any type of sermon or service still to HD motions, countdowns, banners and all aspects of personalized promotional material, we realized the next step was to merge with a company who is equally passionate about the church, our role in ministry and a future to help churches and pastors do even more. That company is now our parent, RT Creative Group.
As a subsidiary of RT Creative Group, Graceway Media can now help your church with any design and promotional needs—and equip you with the tools that you need on a weekly and daily basis.

The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy
NOTE: This was the statement that launched the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, an interdenominational joint effort by hundreds of evangelical scholars and leaders to defend biblical inerrancy against the trend toward liberal and neo-orthodox conceptions of Scripture.
The Statement was produced at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago in the fall of 1978, during an international summit conference of concerned evangelical leaders. It was signed by nearly 300 noted evangelical scholars, including Boice, Norman L. Geisler, John Gerstner, Carl F. H. Henry, Kenneth Kantzer, Harold Lindsell, John Warwick Montgomery, Roger Nicole, J.I. Packer, Robert Preus, Earl Radmacher, Francis Schaeffer, R.C. Sproul, and John Wenham.
The ICBI disbanded in 1988, its work complete. The Council ultimately produced three major statements: this one on biblical inerrancy in 1978, one on biblical hermeneutics in 1982, and one on biblical application in 1986. A published copy of the statement may be found in Carl F. H. Henry in God, Revelation and Authority, vol. 4 (Waco, Tx.: Word Books, 1979), on pp. 211-219.
