Low Anxiety Evangelism

Reading my own words in the last post made me nervous. Evangelism scares me. The very word still makes my spine sort of wiggle against the back of my chair. I know this is specific to my odd liberal culture. On NPR, in the New Yorker, and in most of the Episcopal Church “evangelism” is a dirty word.And so my plea for Christians to invest time in relationship building makes me nervous. I have known and loved many “evangelicals.” For so many Christians the stakes are still so high. I remember…See More

Jon F. Dewey commented on Mike Angell's blog post The failure of emergent worship.
"I completely agree with you. One of my "beefs" with the whole emergent concept is that too many organizations and/or churches view it as just another program to attempt. (I actually heard a woman from a sister parish talk about it in this…"

The failure of emergent worship.

After a couple of days with Phyllis Tickle, I’ve decided it’s all Whoopi Goldberg’s fault. Read more.It’s Whoopi Goldberg’s fault. At least I think it’s partly her fault. In the 1992 movie Sister Act a single scene gave a false hope to the Church. In the movie, Whoopi plays an undercover lounge singer hiding under witness protection in a San Francisco convent. She has a hard time fitting…See More

"A book I highly recommend is "The Art of Pilgrimage." It really made the distinction for me clear between traveling as a tourist and making a pilgrimage."

Revnelli commented on Mike Angell's blog post Pilgrimage
"Can I share two thoughts on pilgrimage? 1) Pilgrimage is a return journey. For medieval pilgrims, there was an outward and a return journey. We tend to focus on the outward, but the return is maybe more significant. The outward is the journey of…"

Pilgrimage

This is the first time in several years that I haven't spent March preparing to leave for El Salvador, to be a pilgrim on the road to the tomb of Archbishop Oscar Romero. I've been thinking a great deal about pilgrimage lately. As part of a course this January we had to write up a "Rule of Life." We had to describe the faith practices that give meaning and shape to our life. I included a section on pilgrimage.



Regular Pilgrimage

In addition to weekly worship, it is important for… Continue

Standing on your Head for Lent.

Sometimes Jesus doesn’t make a lot of sense. In today’s Gospel reading he exhorts his followers to fast, but also tells them not to make a big deal of it. Though the Old Testament reading from Joel tells us to “Blow the Trumpet. Sanctify a fast.” Jesus says specifically, “Do not blow a trumpet.” Confusing.

I grew up thinking of Lent kind of like a Christian version of New Year’s resolutions. It was a time to start a diet, give up caffeine or chocolate, stop smoking or swearing, or doing… Continue

Hi Mike,
saw on your blog about the MDG stations - we did a similar thing at EDS but over the course of morning prayer for a week and had a U2charist to culminate ... I like how you've made it all into one liturgy - not "witchy" at all!! And I think very accessible esp for young people so right on!!
blessings ... as you're a seminarian, do you know The Beatitudes Society? check them out!
peace and welcome here!
