As I was looking at some of the pictures from Easter at MBCC I realized that I have never really posted many images of the church.  Easter at MBCC has always been interesting because most of our folks leave town[…]

Due to a variety of reasons – mostly too many freaking people were come to church – about six months ago MBCC decided to intentionally transition from being a “Pastoral Church” to being a “Program Church.”  You can see the[…]

First coffee in the "sanctuary" and now this?!?!?! And this?!?!?!? As part of our Series "Re|Creation: Meeting God in the Here and Now" we added a few elements to our "normal" worship experience.  In order to expand the ways that[…]

Pending any more big news about this, this will be the last specific post on the ruckus raised by our 2008 Easter graphic.  I have always understood the viral nature of things, but this is still surprising on so many[…]

Oh now we gone and done it!  Our 2008 “Come and Follow Mii” postcard has totally blowuptuated in the gaming world.  They laughed, the cried, they defended and they mocked.  And in the end I think it is pretty awesome[…]

Some DORK actually developed a meme specifically for Presbyterian Church (USA) folks.  So, only to not crush his geeky little ego, I guess I’ll participate. The rules are pretty basic in about 25 words each, answer the following five questions;[…]

[photo by pepe50] The world has a fascination with the next big thing.  We are enthralled by size, power and explosions metaphorical and real.  The church is the same way, especially those of us in the church already. A good example[…]

If you have not heard of this new blog, Stuff White People Like, you might be living under a blog rock.  I have been seeing this blog being referenced all over the freaking place.  I figured, OK, let me go[…]

Everyone once in a while I am reminded how not progressive we are at MBCC.  Not talking specifics – gonna save it for sermon time – but there are certainly places where we fail to see beyond our own cultural[…]

I have a three-week series to preach/facilitate/meander through after Easter and am thinking about doing a series on “You can’t ask THAT . . .” . . . things you re not supposed to talk about in church . […]

At some point folks will stop thinking that I am just wasting my time on such social networks like Yelp, Facebook, etc.  Granted my pastoral world is different that most folks and the whole 2.0 thing is a natural fit[…]

Last Sunday a few of us from MBCC joined San Francisco Network Ministries for their annual Christmas Caroling in the Tenderloin. We have not been for a few years and I had forgotten what a powerfully simple experience it is. […]

Everyone once in a while I get these glimpses of overwhelming gratitude that can only be God.   Two such times as of late have reminded me of the many blessings that can come about if we open ourselves up to[…]

This is a printing of an article that was just published by the Association on Presbyterian Church Educators (APCE) in their Quarterly resource, The Advocate.  This is a mish-mash of many other thoughts I have spouted here before, but there[…]
