Places I've been...
On the subject of covenant relationships (such a rich and meaningful phrase, to me!) Joy, of Joy in this Journey takes up this subject in the context of church relationships. I love her perspective! Find it here (guest post on 'Jesus needs new PR')
On the subject of interpreting scripture... an interesting perspective from Derek Flood, talking about trajectories of thought and growth of ideas throughout the Bible. (I love that Derek goes places most of us avoid, because they raise uncomfortable questions. The one about genocides and infanticides in the Old Testament? Well he tackles that one here!)
And on the subject of why we all tend to grip and tussle so passionately with our perspectives/ideas/experiences of religion and faith... A thoughtful insight from Richard Beck, over at Experimental Theology - talking about our "ghosts".
