The Questions // Presbymeme II //

1) What is your favorite faith-based hymn, song or chorus.
2) What was the context, content and/or topic of the last sermon that truly touched, convicted, inspired, challenged, comforted and/or otherwise moved you?
3) If you could have all Presbyterians read just one of your previous posts, what would it be and why?
4) What are three PC(USA) flavored blogs you read on a regular basis?
5) If the PC(USA) were a movie, what would it be and why?

My answers:

1) What is your favorite faith-based hymn, song or chorus?:

I have been really into Hillsong United and Hillsong Australia recently . . . but in spite of the fact that that's what I've been playing on my ipod when I want to worship, I still have to say that the hymn "Come Thou Fount" is my lasting favorite. It unites me with all the other grateful sinners who know how much they need grace every single day!

2) What was the context, content and/or topic of the last sermon that truly touched, convicted, inspired, challenged, comforted and/or otherwise moved you?:

It was a sermon on putting feet to loving the enemies that surround us in our congregations and in our lives. We all can say the right words about showing that we really follow Jesus by loving the stranger and our enemy as well as our brothers . . . but to give us a call to truly do that in practical ways in our real-life situations is actually pretty radical. Too bad my enemies didn't hear the same sermon. (Joke!)

3) If you could have all Presbyterians read just one of your previous posts, what would it be and why?:

My husband just suggested I answer this one by creating a non-existent post title, so that you'd all search through all my posts looking . . . But my honest answer here is the post from 11.17.07 entitled Fear and Disillusionment.

4) What are three PC(USA) flavored blogs you read on a regular basis?:

I read many, but three worth noting are Carol Howard Merritt's Tribal Church ; Jim Bonewald's The Church Geek; and Neal Locke's Mr. Locke's Classroom .

5) If the PC(USA) were a movie, what would it be and why?:

Right now, I'd pick Steve Martin's "Parenthood" from the late 80s . . . because we are one very screwed up family, but we do love each other and need each other, and God is moving our story toward reconciliation and joy and new life.

Okay, now for the people I'll tag . . .

I'll start with the three bloggers I named already (Carol Howard Merritt's Tribal Church ; Jim Bonewald's The Church Geek; and Neal Locke's Mr. Locke's Classroom) and add Ryan Kemp-Pappan's The Fettered Heart and Shawn Coons' I, geekrev.
