Sunday Sermonette

I had intended to post this past week, but no topic presented itself. Since I left you staring at a sermon all week, I have decided that there will be no preaching today (and there was rejoicing). Instead, you must promise to think deeply about your spirituality on your own for a few minutes today...

To jump-start your introspection, I have the following list of thought-provoking links. If you only have time for one, take a look a the first one.

A movie...
Vajra Sky

Some games...
BuddhaWheel
Karma Chakra
Christian Board Games
Jewish Board Games ("Matzah Ball Bingo" is my favorite...)

Religious Q&As
Jewish Q&A (courtesy of Mandy)
Buddhist Q&A
Christian Q&A
LDS Q&A
Wiccan Q&A

Go in Peace

I fixed the LDS link. And Mr. Lindsay is funny, but not entirely helpful.

We agnostics can't get no love!

Claytonian said...

better than before... but I like the funny guy.

Anyhoo, an interesting, slightly liberal and extremely smart LDS blog is http://www.bycommonconsent.com/
but you may need a little more knowledge about the church than Joe Blow.

Do you know any good Zen or Buddhist blogs? Are you Zen, BTW? Its popular in America, but over here Zen seems to be a small team among many.

G-Log,
I imagine there are very few agnostic Q&As because "I'm not sure" would be the answer to every question...

Clay,
Although I study Zen the most, I am interested in all the forms of Buddhism. I think that Zen translated to the West well because it was introduced here first, and because it doesn't require the extensive knowledge of Asian cultures that is need to grasp the more 'ethnic' versions of Buddhism.

Zen has always been a smaller denomination, due to its rigorous approach. In the US now, Tibetan Buddhism is growing rapidly, as is Soka Gakai and Jodo Shinshu.

As for Buddhist blogs, I really don't know of any off the top of my head. I sometimes enjoy the Buddhist discussions on Beliefnet, but they tend to become repetitive. Buddhism is really quite simple; if you talk about it a lot, you are bound to go over the same material repeatedly.

Strange...the link to the Jewish q&a isn't coming up.

Also strange...you chose a Gardnerian page vs. a non-path specific page like WitchVox. They did give some nice general answers though!
