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.

Lessons Learned While Listening: Christian Devotions for the Day to Day | Debra Fileta
A Christian Counselor's reflections on faith, life, love and God in the day to day...
*****
First and foremost I'm a woman in love with her Lord. Secondly, the wife of an amazing husband. Thirdly, a proud mother two precious children. Fourthly, a Licensed Professional Counselor who has the honor of sharing in the lives of others. And lastly, I'm an author- who sees these words on a page as the most therapeutic part of my day. I'm writing my first book about dating and finding true love called True Love Dates. Look for it with Zondervan publishing, coming Fall 2013!

Grit and Glory | Alece Ronzino
My life is filled with a glorious grit. Or maybe it’s a gritty glory.
The beautiful dissonance of grit and glory is the soundtrack of my life as a missionary. It’s also the melody line of this season of my life as I move forward as a once-again single woman.
I enjoy the tension of my paradoxical life. The grit is what makes the glory so glorious. If it were all glory, I wouldn’t recognize it anymore. When souls saved and genuine hugs become mundane, I’ve missed out on the grit of my life. When answering emails and cooking dinner become overwhelmingly weighty, I’ve missed out on the glory. I need both, and I strive to see Him mixed into it all.
My life is nothing more than grit and glory.
Mostly grit.
*****
I’m just a Long Island girl who’s passionate about grace, authenticity, and good salsa. I moved to South Africa when I was 19, where I lived and served as a missionary for 13 years {though I still shudder a bit at the word “missionary”}. I’m now a communications strategist and program architect for non-profits, embracing a new season of life in Nashville. {And I’m only half-joking when I say life in Africa prepared me for life in the South.}
I’m starting over after my marriage and ministry came to a screeching halt at the hands of infidelity and divorce. I live with far more questions than answers and try always to write candidly about the grit and glory of learning to trust God through uncertainty and loss.
I’m an extroverted introvert. I laugh really loud, dance in the car, and burst into random off-key songs. I despise choosing favorites, can’t decide which I crave more: roots or wings, and am on a lifelong search for the perfect margarita.
Most of all, I’m thankful for a God who writes remarkable redemption stories.

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.

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.

Crooked Neighbor, Crooked Heart. | Dani Kelley
In general: obsessive geek, lover of words, passionate friend, skeptical feminist, fighter of depression, reluctant activist, survivor of sexual assault, thinker of many thoughts, struggling writer.
By trade: almost equal parts graphic designer, web designer, email campaign manager, marketer, copywriter, and illustrator.
This blog is where I contemplate different issues that interest or affect me. A lot of those issues will involve feminism, surviving various abuse, and discovering how to better interact with my world. For more on what that means for conversations on this blog, please see the comment policy.

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.
I am a feminist and a member of BGSU’s Organization for Women’s Issues. I am passionate about reconciling my Christian faith with feminism, and about helping to make the church a better place for women everywhere.
I’m opinionated, but I appreciate other points of view, so feel free to ask me any questions!

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.

The Curator
The Curator launched on August 29, 2008 as a web publication of International Arts Movement (IAM), which announces the signs of a “world that ought to be” as we find it in our midst, and seeks to inspire people to engage deeply with culture that enriches life and broadens experience.
In keeping with IAM’s belief that artistic excellence, as a model of “what ought to be”, paves the way for lasting, enduring humanity, The Curator seeks to encourage, promote, and uncover those artifacts of culture – those things which humans create – that inspire and embody truth, goodness, and beauty. We do this through considering and grappling with the zeitgeist.
The opinions in this magazine are not necessarily the viewpoint of The Curator or IAM, but represent a continuing commitment to wrestling with the culture that is and looking toward what could be.

“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。

Tikkun Magazine | A Jewish Magazine, an Interfaith movement
Tikkun is a magazine dedicated to healing and transforming the world. We seek writing that gives us insight on how to make that utopian vision a reality. We build bridges between religious and secular progressives by delivering a forceful critique of all forms of exploitation, oppression, and domination while nurturing an interfaith vision of a caring society — one whose institutions are reconstructed on the basis of love, generosity, nonviolence, social justice, caring for nature, and awe and wonder at the grandeur of the universe.

Fieldnotes Magazine » Practical Wisdom for Emerging Leaders
“Fieldnotes,” according to the sociologist Robert M. Emerson, are “accounts describing experiences and observations the researcher has made while participating in an intense and involved manner.”
In Fieldnotes, we provide examples and stories and practical wisdom from men and women who are intensely involved in the day-to-day work of managing businesses, non-profits, churches, and other organizations. We seek to inspire and help emerging leaders to do their work better, manage their relationships, and discover what faith means for the way they lead their lives in the workplace.
Fieldnotes readers are a diverse bunch: Some have a natural inclination toward leadership; others find themselves in a position of responsibility for others. Knowing that God’s reign extends over every area of life, they understand that their work counts, but they want to understand what it really means to connect faith and work – beyond the standard answers. What does faith mean for what they actually do and how they do it? What does it mean for how they run meetings? For how they spend their mornings? For how they interact with coworkers, employees, partners, friends? How can their work count for the greater good? How can work, leadership, and organizational life be practiced in a “truly human” way – and what does that even mean?
Fieldnotes, in other words, is for emerging leaders who want to work and live well.

The Englewood Review of Books | Community, Mission, Imagination, Reconciliation
The Best Books for Missional Church communities. Community. Mission. Imagination Reconciliation.
*****
The Englewood Review of Books is a weekly book review published by Englewood Christian Church, Indianapolis. We review books that we believe are valuable resources for the people of God, as we follow the mission of God: i.e., the reconciliation of all things. The books we review are not necessarily books from the “Christian market,” and most of the books that we review will not be stocked in your local Christian bookstore.
Our friend, Shane Claiborne, likes to say that “Another World is Possible,” and indeed we hope that the books we review point toward a new world that is characterized by the justice and shalom of God.

John G. Stackhouse, Jr. | Clear, Expert, and Entertaining Connections
John G. Stackhouse, Jr. is an award-winning scholar and public communicator who has spent years adventurously mapping our complex cultural terrain, identifying both its worthy achievements and its zones of confusion.
He collects research from a wide range of sources, corrects currently popular interpretations, and connects audiences with information and insight they can put immediately into practice. He is therefore a skilled guide in helping us chart a course through the prospects and impasses of modern society. And he does all this with a wit you’ll find surprisingly refreshing in a scholar.
Our world demands our best,
and Dr. Stackhouse helps us think it and do it.

Ekklesia Project | Fostering conversations about the Church among theologians, pastors, and congregations.
The Ekklesia Project is a network of Christians from across the Christian tradition who rejoice in a peculiar kind of friendship rooted in our common love of God and the Church. We come together from Catholic parishes, Protestant congregations, communities in the Anabaptist tradition, house-churches and more as those who are convinced that to call ourselves Christian means that following Jesus Christ must shape all areas of life. Our shared friendship is one of God’s good gifts. With deep gratitude for God’s ongoing grace, we are unapologetically…
* God-centered
* Church-centered
* Shalom-centered
* Political
Seeing Christ’s Body as our “first family,” The Ekklesia Project aims to put discipleship and the Church as an alternative community of practices, worship, and integration at the center of contemporary debates on Christianity and society. We work to assist the Church as it lives its true calling as the real-world community whose primary loyalty is to God’s Kingdom that has broken into the world in Jesus’ person, priorities and practices, and that continues to do so in and through the gathered Body of Christ.

biblicalia | biblica + alia = biblicalia
I am Kevin P. Edgecomb of Brookline, Massachusetts, where I am a seminarian in the MDiv program at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, with the intention to be eventually ordained to the priesthood.
My undergraduate work was at U.C. Berkeley, with a BA in Near Eastern Studies (Classical Hebrew emphasis). Since then, I’ve kept up with my field of studies and expanded them to include the early Christian period. I’ve a special fascination with apocryphal/pseudepigraphic works, and with early church orders and lectionaries. You may have noticed that from the site. Some of the translations here are from scratch, others are based on earlier translations, as noted. In a way, this website is a record of how my curiosity has led me far and wide.
I’m a member of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and find many of my studies to be related to my faith, to a greater or lesser degree. And while prayer is the foundation, reading and study have contributed to the building of my current life as well.
I appreciate all the kind thanks that many have sent, and am grateful for the various links that others have made to my site, its usage in graduate seminars and sermons, publications that have resulted from pages and posts here, and through kind mention of my humble efforts in whatever media. I’m always interested to hear what different people find most useful on the site, or what they’ve enjoyed most. I also appreciate all input on things like format and presentation. I try to keep things simple. The important thing is the information imparted, not the presentation.
Thank you for visiting bombaxo and biblicalia!

An Online Source for Straight-forward Biblical Teaching, Training, and Equipping!
Hi everyone! My name is James-Michael Smith and I want to thank you for checking out my site. I have a passion to see the gap bridged between top-notch Biblical scholarship and the Body of Christ as a whole…from the academy to the pews, so to speak!
In order to help accomplish this, I have released a number of teaching DVDs and Audio resources designed to help even the newest follower of Jesus go deeper in their understanding of Scripture. I also regularly teach short-term Biblical courses and seminars aimed at anyone with a hunger for truth and a desire to grow in their faith. Feel free to browse my online library of articles, view some of my teaching videos, and listen to (and subscribe to!) some of my longer versions via my podcast. If you like what you find I’d encourage you to consider buying some of my Teaching resources for yourself, your small group, your friends, or a family member.

Society of Jesus, Chinese Province 耶穌會中華省
哪裡有需要,就往哪裡去 
460年來,耶穌會神父修士以嶄新而獨特的方式服務教會,留下無數動人的故事,使基督福音的薪火相傳不熄。身為耶穌會士,我們都是基督使命的僕役,這是源自神操的共同體驗,就是在天主恩寵中認清自己是罪人,但如同依納爵一樣蒙召,成為耶穌的夥伴,建立修會團體為耶穌基督效命。
耶穌會士分擔教會的使命,宣揚耶穌基督的福音以拯救人靈。當前耶穌會士的使命,是服務信仰及在社會中促進福音的正義。源於聖依納爵的神操精神,不斷地啟發耶穌會士,在此時此地聆聽並回應天主的召叫,以傳揚福音、服務人靈,達到「愈顯主榮」的目標。
耶穌會士共同的進行方式,就是以自己的內在經驗為出發點,向外開展,成為「尋找天主旨意的人」。從建立修會的初期小團體,到分散在今日世界五大洲的二萬名會士。如同創立人聖依納爵在神操過程中的〈朝聖者〉與〈分辨者〉;耶穌會的使命與生活,是一種基督內的朝聖與勞苦。修會是每位耶穌會士走向天主的坦途。同時,敏感於現代社會的處境及人心的渴望;觀察並掌握時代訊號;隨時準備答覆在教會內宣講福音的使命;改變處所、投身的領域及更新行動的方式。

The Text This Week - Revised Common Lectionary, Scripture Study and Worship Links
This site features a wide variety of resources for study and liturgy based on the 3-year Revised Common Lectionary* cycle. I intentionally include a diverse variety of resources for scripture study, reflection and liturgy, and purposefully do not restrict the resources to any particular theological/ideological position, including my own. The site is a work-in-progress. I spend between 40 and 60 hours each week updating links and finding more resources to link.
The purpose of this website is to provide links to resources for study, reflection and liturgy which correspond to the RCL readings you may be using for study, teaching & preaching. The lectionary tables on this site are the easiest way I could think of to provide easy, lectionary-relevant access to study and liturgy resources. I am not attempting to provide calendars for official readings for any particular denomination. Please check your denominational sources for the official readings for any particular occasion. If/when you find any errors at The Text This Week, I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know about them.
At The Text This Week, you will find conveniently-organized links to a treasure of resources for study, reflection and liturgy pertaining to each week's lectionary texts - both as individual pericopes and as a group of readings within their liturgical setting -- a virtual study desk of sorts, laid out for your weekly exegetical work. Try the Art Concordance if you're looking for lists of artwork indexed according to Biblical themes.

Sacred Space | Your daily prayer online
Welcome! We invite you to make a 'Sacred Space' in your day, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
*****
Sacred Space is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, a sixteenth-century Basque, whose insights into God's working with the human heart have been of great assistance to countless people over the centuries and are found more helpful than ever today.
Sacred Space is a work of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus - the Jesuits. The site originated in the offices of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland in 1999. Within a short time, many other languages were introduced.

Episcopal Cafe
Welcome to the Episcopal Café, an independent Web site featuring news, commentary, art, meditations and video.
The Café is collaborative effort by more than two dozen writers and editors, and an ever-growing list of visual artists. Together, we aspire to create a visually appealing, intellectually stimulating, spiritually enriching and at least occasionally amusing site where Episcopalians and those interested in our church can read, watch, listen and reflect upon contemporary life in a context informed by faith and animated by the spirit of charity.
Our aim is frankly, but we hope gently, evangelical. To the extent that we can speak intelligently, passionately, persuasively and truthfully—and to the degree that we manifest wisdom, humility and genuine concern for those we disagree with—we will succeed in drawing Episcopalians more deeply into their faith, and in persuading those without a spiritual home to explore our Church.
