2nd Monday Possibilities

When we talked last month about a new feature for the 2nd Monday, we got a lot of great ideas, including:

  • exploring a different spiritual practice each month
  • sharing favorite links (both blogs and other websites)
  • sharing things for which we are grateful
  • or sharing sitings of God
What we need now is to get a sense of which would be most desired by the wider group, and to recruit someone(s) to host the feature. Please let us know in the comments if you might be interested!


  1. All of those sound great to me... The idea of "sitings of God" could be very fun, either just a collection of photos or quotes...

    and if you need host, please consider me. :)


  2. Wot about a 2nd Monday 'spin-cycle' of all of the suggestions? Or does this just mean I'm indecisive :)

  3. I vote for the 'spiritual practice' option.

  5. I like all of the options; if forced to choose, I'd vote for spiritual practices.

  6. I vote for God sightings or is always interesting to me to learn about different places on the web that others enjoy visiting...especially when they are like minded!

  7. I like the "sitings" idea, too... or should we call it "Showings"? ;-)

    The idea of sharing links is helpful, too. I'd expand it beyond the internets to include books, videos, and other materials--sort of a virtual "resource room." There could be a call for themed material, rather like the Friday Five: homiletical helps, church music resources, discussion guides for hot-button issues, Christian education stuff for a certain topic or age, etc.

  8. I like the idea of an intentional time for reflecting on things for which we're grateful...especially on a Monday!

  9. Sightings or showings. I like that idea and also sharing blog postings or web sites.

  10. all are good

    what Deb wrote about sitings sounds intriguing but I'd also be interesting in spiritual disciplines /practices to help us grow

    I am sorry but rightnow I couldn't host it ... maybe after the new year I could be more active again. Let's see

  11. I kind of like the "spin cycle" idea too because these all sound great!

  12. gratitude lists and/or spiritual practices would be cool; "God sitings" would be fun also, especially since it's virtually impossible to discern them until after the fact.

  13. Actually - I take back my suggestion because the idea of a "spin cycle" is quite interesting... it includes the spiritual conversation we pursue - practices, serendipitous moments or thin places...

    I'll be an avid reader!
