A while ago I heard the preacher man speak about Being Beautiful (mp3) (Greg Boyd, Woodland Hills Church). Since then I've been bugged.
Tuesday I listened to a different preacher man speak about the Sabbath (mp3) (Rob Bell, Mars Hill Church). In addition to points about sabbath-ing, there are hints to the sorts of things I believe could nudge humanity in directions that would mitigate global warming.
Today I decided to take a sabbatical. I'll return when I think my sense of humor has.
Update: I've openly pointed to two personalities that I obviously let influence me and those two people come with baggage. However, these are two pastoral type people I trust. I trust them largely because I've never heard them say the person next to me should change their behavior. I trust them because they keep me busy thinking about my behavior.
The best criticisms of Rob Bell can be found through Wikipedia. I assume Google can uncover them for Greg Boyd.
Update: My download service might not work well for everyone. The official download pages might work better.
Boyd is here. The page is date ordered, 8/20 is the one.
Start here for Bell. It's not named Sabbath but November 12 is the one. They ask for e-mail addresses to download. As far as I know, they've never used mine for anything.
