Recommended Blogs/Sites

The internet is filled with blogs and websites.  It can be helpful to receive recommendations where you can find good writing and resources.  Hence, this page.  I add to it regularly.  Enjoy!

Chanting.  Listening.  Loving.  Learning.  These are the gifts Ana Hernandez brings to her teaching.  Ana writes sometimes.  Other times she records beautiful music.  But most of the time she’s leading workshops that help people move beyond their stuckness to see where else God might be leading them.  You can catch up with her blog and her busy schedule at http://anahernandez.org/ .

Patty Giffin is one of the few people I know personally who articulates and moves from a place of stillness most of the time.  She is wise, practiced, joyful, and radiant and one of my dearest friends.  She doesn’t blog often but it’s worth checking out her site anyway.  She teaches in the non-dual tradition of Ramana Maharishi and Nisargadatta Mararaj, her current teacher being Rodney Smith.  She’s a sought-after therapist, avid cyclist-skier-kayaker, and extreme gardener.  She’s a true gift in my life and I invite you to connect to her work at http://www.bendpsych.com/.

My friend Greg Knight has been producing a podcast for the past 4 years called Popping Collars.  Along with friends/cohosts Betsy Gonzales, Elizabeth Easton, and Ricardo Avila, Greg invites a variety of guests to join the conversation about the intersection of religion and pop culture.  Occasionally, he asks me to join.  Otherwise, he has smart people on.  It’s a lot of fun and some really good sermon fodder so check it out!   http://poppingcollarspodcast.com/

Nadia Bolz-Weber is a refreshing voice in what sometimes can be a vast choir of bland, sentimental sermonizing.  Check out her ministry at http://www.nadiabolzweber.com/ .

Jay Johnson: A former professor who is responsible for my conversion to the gospel of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jay often takes what is familiar in the Christian tradition and turns it on its head so we can see it with fresh eyes.  http://peculiarfaith.com/

Ceil Kessler:  Do you have a friend that you keep telling, “You gotta be a writer!”?  I do.  Her name is Ceil.  She is brilliant and hilarious.  And I am thrilled that she’s finally writing down some of her witticisms because I get to read them and laugh out loud.  Her blog is called Ask Ceil.  Read it.  Read it now.  http://magnificentnose.com/category/ask-ceil/

Heather Kirn Lanier: Among other things, Heather is a teacher, a writer, and the mom of 2 beautiful children named Fiona and Petra.  This is beautiful writing, folks.  Join Heather as she blogs about how her heart encounters life as the mother of a special young person.  http://starinhereye.wordpress.com/
