It’s Official, I’m a Progressive Christian Blogger
Everybody’s doing it. Well, not everybody, but a lot of my friends have already made the blog migration over to Patheos.com. I met the team from Patheos at last year’s inaugural Wild Goose Festival in North Carolina, and I was impressed with their overall approach. Patheos seems to be succeeding where BeliefNet before it has faltered and failed, bringing together an eclectic range of voices into one massive portal of dialogue and conversation about the future of faith and spirituality.
I’m excited to join the Progressive Christian channel on Patheos — home to my friends Brian McLaren, Tony Jones, Kimberly Knight (no relation), and others — to launch my latest project called Missional Shift, a new blog dedicated to curating the missional church conversation. I’m already an avid reader of all things missional, and so this new blog will be an outlet for passing along the best and the brightest ideas, questions, news, and information for anyone across the theological spectrum who is interested in missional church.
In my inaugural post, I explain why this new blog has come to reside in the Progressive Christian channel, charting ever-so-briefly my journey from evangelicalism into mainline Protestantism. I feel very privileged to be able to do what I do for a living, and to be able to write about it and share what I’m learning with others — and, honestly, to help filter through the noise of all the missional mumbo-jumbo that is out there — is going to be a lot of fun. I hope you’ll join me on this new venture! Please read, subscribe to the blog (via RSS or email), share links to stuff you find interesting and useful on Facebook, Twitter, etc. I’d really appreciate it. Without further adieu …
