So there’s this Five Faves thing that’s been rolling round the blogosphere, starting here and reaching my radar at Definatalie, so I thought I’d do a bit of bandwagon jumping while I wait for my friend Leah to show up on Friday.
1. The following remix:
2. Friends who also blog. I highly recommend my friend Lindsey, who blogs on a regular schedule (which she might enlighten us to in the comments section?!); Sally has some nice thoughts on life and punk theology; Rachel blogs about art; Tom blogs so pathetically irregularly that I’m considering hooking him up with an Imodium prescription, but when he does blog it’s pretty good stuff. His post about how he became a Christian is particularly lovely.
3. Bangor’s new coffeehouse, Studio Cafe.
4. He hates being referred to as “pastor”…whatever, our “team leader”, Jim Denison, is hands-down one of the best preachers I have ever heard, as well as one of my favourite human beings.
It is a delight to get to listen to him ever week at Canterbury Vineyard, and an honour and a privilege to serve alongside him. It’s hard to pick a favourite sermon, but here are a few good’uns: worship, disillusionment, getting rid of legalism. Also, his laugh has its very own Facebook page.
5. I’ve just gotten into Battlestar Galactica, and might be ever-so-slightly obsessed with the character Kara Thrace, aka Starbuck.
What do I like about her? Her attitude, aptitude, complex characterisation, adorable smile, multifaceted personality and overall likeability. Plus, she looks like she gives awesome hugs.
