Back from Memphis

As you have noticed, I have been a terrible blogger this summer. But at least for one week I have a good excuse, I was in Memphis.

The 35th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) met this past week in Memphis to discuss important matters and business.

It was a good meeting, I saw a lot of friends and had the opportunity to promote New England and invite people & churches to visit on a short term missions opportunity.

This meeting was particularly important as we had to deal with some serious theological matters. I won't go into the particulars, but some have said it was one of the most critical moments in the PCA. In the end, we made the right decision and I left Memphis thankful to be apart of the PCA.

What would Jesus buy?

Have you heard about Reverend Billy?

Just saw a feature on the Today Show on NBC this morning on the Rev Billy, who is not a real minister but does a parody on an old fashion street preacher.

His "gospel" is a bit different from mine, but still interesting. He preaches against consumerism, which is personally one of my biggest concerns with American Society.

A documentary on his ministry is coming out sometime soon, check out the website that promotes it.

There is also this article on Wikipedia.

Hey, I found something to blog about!
