Somehow between my daughter's first day of "school," a girls weekend to Miami, the U.S. Open Finals, restart of Premiership and the 10th anniversary of 9/11 I've managed to have nothing profound or exciting to write. Or perhaps I've just been busy and satisfied at reading other people's thoughts.
So on that note, I would encourage readers to visit Rachel Held Evans' blog and peruse the "Ask a _____ " series. I haven't read all of them, but I have read enough to have great respect for both the readers kind, well-meaning questions, as well as the respondents honest answers. It's not a perfect tour of a variety of viewpoints, but a nice entree into conversations.
Here's the link to the most recent iteration, "Ask a Gay Christian." You'll find links there to all the other participant Q&A's.
