Consumerist Church

Not sure which is better, giving you more links or concentrating on a smaller list of about twenty or so…

Don’t forget the summary of things most clicked appears late Thursday or Friday on my Twitter. Not sure I’ve ever mentioned that before; sorry!

Both our opening and closing images today were sent by reader and fellow-blogger Clark Bunch whose own image collection appears each week at his blog The Master’s Table at a feature called Happy Monday. Kinda feel sorry for the woman in the picture below; ya gotta pick your subway/bus seat carefully.

Okay. I left the name of the church off to save them embarrassment years from now when they’ve had time to second guess their tag line, but this memorial to it is still here. I get the picture. We know church isn’t perfect. We know you want to be a “church for people who aren’t into church;” but religion ain’t all bad. Read James 1:27 sometime.

Normally we lead off with a funny picture or cartoon, but after yesterday’s reports on the Iran nuclear negotiations, I want to give the space to the Saeed Abedini story instead. Some of you know I give this story prominent display space from time to time, but truth be told, I’m one of a very small handful of bloggers devoting attention to this story.

And now, back to our regular programming.

In all the excitement over Pope Francis visiting South America, you might have missed the related video game:

An online game in which Pope Francis careers through the streets of Asuncion in his “popemobile” dodging potholes is delighting Paraguayans fed up with the capital city’s dilapidated streets.

In “Papa Road,” which is popular locally, players navigate the Argentine-born pontiff through the city center against a backdrop of the national Congress and cathedrals. Hit three craters and it is game over, with the pope holding his head in his hands.

From the Church Curmudgeon Twitter feed:

Worship Leader: There will be a potluck at 5 pm
Congregation. The announcements endure forever
Worship Leader: Deacons meeting on Wednesday
Congregation: The announcements endure forever…

Not sure how long this week’s link list will be right now because the wind is really whipping out there and there’s a possibility of power outa/]

The Real Thing

Coming (out) soon: In the news events of the past month we’ve seen people identify as a different gender and a different race than that they were born with. What’s next? Species? I’ve always felt I identified most strongly with some of the big cats we’d see on our zoo visits. Especially the Bengal Tigers. There’s something there that has always resonated. So yes, I am beginning species reassignment therapy. And starting today, really watch your blog comments, because I scratch. And bite. And I’m really ticked the grocery stores no longer stock Tender Vittles.

From the YouTube description on a channel I operate sponsored by Searchlight Books:

To the best of my knowledge, the oldest recording in my collection of Contemporary Christian Music, highlighting again that the entire movement traces its oldest roots to Roman Catholic folk masses. This 1969 recording is a translation from Italian where the group, known originally as I Barritas, or The Little Berets, learned the English phonetically. It was originally written in 1964 as Messa de la Pace, and was dedicated to the memory of Martin Luther King.

Welcome back! Hopefully nothing this week that we need to pull. Apologies if you know what that’s referring to…

Some day I’m only going to run links from blogs that don’t have pop-ups asking for subscriptions. There will only be about five links that week.
