Preview: Reverend Carol Howard Merritt

Our first month is starting with a bang on the new Two Friars and a Fool. We will have a new guest every 3 days with video responses and moderated forum discussions for each one. We want to put out consistently thought provoking content, but more importantly host some great conversations.

One of the first month's contributors we are very excited about is Rev. Carol Howard Merritt. She is the author of Tribal Church and Reframing Hope. She blogs at and HuffPo and a few other spots. She is the co-host of God Complex Radio and somehow she fits in being pastor at Western Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C.

If you haven't been reading her stuff you've been missing out on some cogent, insightful analysis of where we have come, and where we are going as a church, like her most recent article about local food movements. We can rectify this gross oversight in your education. We are going to be reviewing her most recent book and hosting a new article by Rev. Howard Merritt in March.

interesting blog

Doug Hagler said...

Thanks donut, we're proud of it. Though, as you can see, we are moving on to bigger (and more time-consuming) things. This blog will remain, with all that we wrote, for the foreseeable future (I don't see much reason to ever take it down unless we somehow migrate the material).

But, anyway, read and enjoy, join the conversation, and we'll see you on March 1 at the new site.

Someone once said-
"People don't care how much you know till they know how much you care"
How does that work with BLOGS ?
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Doug Hagler said...

I would hope that how much we care comes across in the way we talk about things and, at our best, in the way we interact with people. But it's a good point that interaction on blogs is not preceded by any kind of emotional connection, and the medium makes that kind of connection difficult.

Dan said...

That's why I try and include scripture as much as possible because --- the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
If not the use of many words end up to be-- hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
We're not saving the planet,we're to save peoples lives.
It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Keep up the good work, DAN
