To all the new visitors from ninetyandnine, welcome to a blog that will hopefully change your life. And be forewarned, this is not your average blog ranting against the death of holiness in our churches or at the same token ranting against the rise of legalism in our churches.
Let me explain as briefly as possible who we are, what the blog is, and some basic rules...
Who We Are:
The actual contributors right now to the site are Chantell Smith, Glen McGee, and myself. I think every one of us is in college to some capacity including 2/3 of us being in grad school which is simply more of an indicator that we don't want to grow up yet....
What This is:
As short as possible: To remember to laugh at ourselves as apostolics and also in the process to locate our unique space in this universe through the culture we have created.
I strongly encourage and advise each of you to read the "About this blog section" that is on the right side of the screen. PLEASE DO THIS! It will stop the storm before it starts....
Also many of the topics are suggested by you the reader...so if you have a good idea that you think is good enough to hold it's weight on the site, send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not get offended however if your idea does not make on here or if your idea takes a long time to end up on the site. There have been a bunch of recommendations (most of them postworthy), but that said, there is basically a long waiting line to get the topics posted.
This blog started in the waning weeks of August of 2009 as simply a rip-off (or a tribute) of the Stuff White People Like. Somehow in these brief two months, 86 posts and counting have been made, and I can say it's been not only fun but a great stress reliever.
Despite several people around me suggesting that I disable comments on this site, I have elected to allow them for the time being....
As you read the posts you will see these topics can from time to time offend people. While this is not the purpose of the blog, given the content, it is an inevitable result. That said, if you don't agree with the posts, I welcome your criticisms to my email: email@example.com. However should you choose to comment, please keep your comments mild, and if you choose to insult or degrade the authors (or other commenters) your comment will most likely be deleted without explanation. The slippery slope post has the perfect example of comments that I will allow in spite of the fact that some people disagreed (they did so with a respecting tone).
So without further ado, here are some of my favorite posts in the short while this site has been up:
- Standing in Parking Lots
- Breaking Up to Get Closer to God
- Covering Ladies' legs who are slain the spirit with suitcoats
- To start praying when the preacher starts walking in your direction at the altar
- The Shouting Song
- Breaking up at camp/convention/congress
- The Notebook
- Church Sound Men
- Deducing the Mark of the Beast
- Thinking IBC songs are original
- Massages being an excuse for guys and girls to touch each other
