A La Carte (07/18)

Tuesday July 18, 2006

Church: An article at Yahoo discusses megachurches that build a Republican base. “In a March survey, a quarter of Ohio residents said they were evangelicals — believing that a strict adherence to the Bible and personal commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ will bring salvation.” Sadly, that is probably what many of these people actually believe!

Blogging: The 2006 Blogathon is going to begin soon. If you’re interested in raising money for the cause of your choice, perhaps this is a way of doing so. It involves 24-hours of blogging at 30 minute intervals.

Music: On September 1, Derek Webb will begin giving away his latest album “Mockingbird” for free. You can learn about his rationale at freederekwebb.com. “On september 1st, we’re launching freederekwebb.com, a place where anyone can go online and not just hear but actually download, keep, and share ‘mockingbird’ completely for free.”

Blogspotting: Adrian Warnock mentioned to me that Ed Stetzer mentioned an article I wrote a while back during the recent Resurgence Conference at Mars Hill Church. It is part of this speech and references this article entitled “An Eight-Part Music Test.”
