It's still over a week away, but the excitement is building. I'm talking about the July 21 release of the seventh and final installment in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Several of our RevGal blog folks are feeling the buzz.
Gord has joined the speculation about how things will turn out for our young hero, and he's inviting predictions about what happens.
Purechristianithink posted encore editions of a couple of posts about how various churches and styles of ministry fit the personalities of the different Hogwarts houses. Anybody out there want to be thought of as a Slytherin?
reverendmother explored the theme of love in a Harry Potter sermon (the second of three).
Michelle of Quantum Theology is off on retreat, but she shared some thoughts about the joys of silence in a commentary piece that was recently published in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Yeah, Michelle!
Lorna mourned the suspension of Sunday worship at her church for the summer, and pondered the challenge of making time for God.
In response to several requests, Shawna shared the recipe for Blueberry-Lemon Bread, and reflected in a blog titled Chicken-fried Ministry that more of Jesus' ministry took place over a meal than at the synagogue. She thinks maybe we should be doing the same.
swandive has returned to blogging and asks what mythological creature you are (turns out she's a chimera).
Mother Laura has posted a sermon about the Good Samaritan that she'll be preaching at one of Sally Coleman's church this weekend. "How cool is that???" Sally asks. Pretty cool!
At Eternal Echoes, Sally herself has a synchro blog on Utopia; Mrs Brown and the Kingdom of God, as well as a description of praying with colors/auras and a reflection on the experience.
And I, your humble scribe, am packing up for my mission trip to Alabama next week. I put the ebook version of Judith Merkle Riley's A Vision of Light on my pda (I'll be back in time for the July 25 RevGal discussion; we'll see if I'm finished by then!) and I'm loading up the mp3 player and looking for thoughtful podcasts to take along. Got any suggestions?
