A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

A quick item before I head off to TN: "During 2004, 102 churches started or affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Since 2001, Disciples have added more than 20,000 persons in 289 congregations to their number. At the current rate, the denomination will achieve its goal of 1,000 new churches by 2011, 9 years ahead of the target year 2020!". Yes you read correctly. The Disciples, a mainline protestant denomination is experiencing some growth. This should shock anyone across the spectrum, but it should also be a cause for some hope.

Hey, this is totally off-topic, but did you get that cat food we left for T. last night? We could see her through the window and she seemed pretty happy to be getting a present. :-D

Good luck at the conference!
