Thanks for Noticing

In a surprising turn of events, writer / activist Brian McLaren knows I exist! Brian is the author of several books, the father of the emergent church movement and a lightning rod of controversy. 

It feels good to know someone out there is listening...

That's how I found you.

And NObody knows me. Which makes me very interesting and obscure.

Brian said...

That is how I found you as well

I have known you forever...but I am still quite impressed! You are doing great work!

Pot calls kettle black (can I say that during this election cycle?). I think if these pastors were liberal ones endorsing the liberal candidate, which has effectively happened in every election since the development of "mainline" Christians, the silence from the McLaren crowd would be deafening.

I found you via Brian's blog as well.

I'm curious, Jonathan: Are you glad that you've received such positive support from McLaren, or are you just merely pointing out that another, perhaps more (in)famous, author has recognized you?

Zach,

The thrust of the post was clearly the latter. However, almost anytime someone gives me a compliment, I am happy about it.
