Our fellowship is finally, finally waking up to that whole single demographic (of course, they get around to it after I am married…didn’t these people realize that I had needs?!?!). A brand new blog is trying to open the dialogue, and Danny Dodd is discussing the unnerving experience of being a divorced preacher in the churches of Christ here. Both merit a look. This conversation is long overdue.
On a lighter note, my fellow geeks (and you know who you are) will like the aptly named Den of Geek website. Filled to the brim with the type of esoteric goodness that a true geek cannot get enough of.

Don’t dismiss it out of hand though; the writer manages to nail virtually every cliche of the American Christian experience. And its pretty funny in its own right.
Abilene Christian University is changing its policy on student alcohol use. Expect a brotherhood-wide knee-jerk reaction, with many of our more reactionary preachers, churches, and journals accusing ACU of traipsing merrily down the primrose path…oh wait, they already say that. Really though, if I lived in west Texas, i’d be hitting the bottle a lot too.
