Thanks, Blackbird (Asheville, NC)

So many folks have commented on how beautiful our first annual GINI awards were (presented on March 31st). 


Our friends from Blackbird Frame and Art (Asheville, NC) -- Pat Horrocks, (John Horrocks and Grace Findley, pictured) -- transformed our 2011 GINI certificates (designed by Emily Bidgood) into lovely awards and works of art, now hanging on the walls of our recipients.   I wanted to take this opportunity to thank them for their donation of time, talents and materials. …

more about mountain-top removal

Forwarding an important message:


The federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSMRE) has proposed a petition to protect public lands in Anderson, Campbell, Morgan and Scott counties. This petition, referred to as the North Cumberland Lands Unsuitable for Mining Petition (LUMP), would prohibit surface mining within the area designated. This would protect many of Tennessee’s mountaintops, and could help keep some of the…

"Resources" ideas - please respond if you have thoughts

Mark & I were talking today about the "Resources" section of the site.

This is a very important section and it needs some more conversation as content is built over the next couple of weeks.

~ If you have thoughts, please respond to this blog post…

Design scheme notes - Feb. 25, 2011

Just some notes on the design scheme I uploaded today.

2) I personally like the added rough texture (it is sandstone texture) to the header and the modules (this is what Ning calls the social networking elements on the main page, like blog posts, photos, rss…

The Ecology of Faith, and The New Preaching Situation

It is now more than sixteen years since I was called away from a parish and a pulpit to assume the ministry of teaching. That fact is remembered here at the outset because it has determined the substance of these lectures. Lectures on preaching would normally and reasonably be assumed to have been prepared by a regular practitioner of the craft who, having actualized certain convictions about substance and method, has now undertaken to order and…
