Trippin' 'Round the 'Sphere - 7/5 Edition

After finishing my recent series on the environment, I was encouraged to see this series on Evangelical Activism started by Dr. Mark Roberts. He discusses a new statement, called the For the Health of the Nation: An Evangelical Call to Civic Responsibility, put out by the National Association of Evangelicals. He points out in the 2nd post that concern for "God's Creation" is something the NAE espouses too.

Nooooooo! Seriously, God's blessings to David. Hate to see a brilliant blogger go, but it's not really "goodbye" so much as "catch you later."

Christian Carnival will be hosted at The Bible Archive this week. Entry deadline is tonight.

Sure, Kristen's moving a few short months before a (planned) trip to Cali...makes it harder to see if a fellow blogger wants to MIRL. Ha! I just hope our proximity to Southern California sometime this fall isn't the impetus for the move, and that God blesses Kristen and Ryan's move, especially by allowing her to keep blogging!
...

I haven't heard anything about this anywhere else...but it's an interesting thesis that will soon be put to the test with a SCOTUS nominee (or two) coming before the Senate this year.
...

She's baaaaaack! Yippee, and welcome back Alice! (And oh the temptation to comment -politely of course - on her kudos to the UCC. I'll give her some time to reacclimate to the 'sphere first.)
...

What a wonderful document, this Declaration of Independence. It's something we should not ever take for granted, and I hope that it was discussed across this nation yesterday - though the cynic in me doubts it is sufficiently passed along to our children nowadays. However, there is an even more important and vital source of freedom: Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. While patriotism, IMO, is good, we are not of this world, and our home is elsewhere. We should embrace the freedom found in Christ. That is the ultimate Independence.

God bless!
