    Welcome to the blogosphere and congrats on the new baby. It’s interesting that you live in an intentional community. My wife and I are in the very midst of forming an intentional, missional community in Brooklyn, New York. You can check out our “bootleg” Web site at http://www.radicalnyc.com. Sounds like you are doing some interesting work. I look forward to reading more posts.

    Peace & Grace!

    Hi, Mike!

    I was following links to my site and found one you had almost certainly made by accident… it’s in a script tag in the HEAD section of your page. Check line 15 in your source code… pretty sure you don’t want that there!

    Anyway, peace and blessings to you!

  3. 3 Mike November 5, 2007 at 7:42 pm

    Mike, I found you because of my interest in N.T. Wright. Heard him at a conference a few years ago. Seems a bit incongruous that the good Bishop of a fairly well- established outfit would associate with “alternative church” types, except that he seems to “get” what we’re supposed to be about. Hey, if he’s in, Soularize me.


  4. 4 josh December 13, 2007 at 5:34 am

    i just realized i suck and never emailed you back at my gmail accounts. then i stumbled across your new blog.

    so it’s my rss. hopefully i won’t be as big of a rude stranger now.

    if you ever need to email me. use josh at redcowboydesigns.com

    i never check email at gmail. and worse yet . . . i’m just not good at doing it anyway.

  5. 5 Aaron Loy January 6, 2008 at 8:40 am

    Hey Mike, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that the link to your “intentional house church community” isn’t working. I was really hoping to check it out! Much love…

  6. 6 Tim Thompson February 9, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    Hello Mike –

    I hapened across your post about Pagan Christianity and was caught by te fact that you straddle both the house church and Emergent worlds. I don’t know that I’ve found anyone else yet who’s in that place, though I’m sure they’re out there. For myself, I feel like an eccentric in three spheres: HC, Emergent and denominational (ELCA Lutheran). I’d have one foot in each camp if I only had three feet. So on the one hand I feel like I don’t “fit” anywhere, but on the other I’m very excited by what I see as a “sweet spot” at the intersection of these worlds.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hello to another hybrid believer.

    Hey Mike,

    Are you a super hero comic man? DC or Marvel? Do you like comic book movies and figures. I am kind of an obsessive compulsive about collecting super hero figures.

    Any way, hope I can find my way back here to find out!

    what is an opti-mystic friend of Jesus?

  12. 12 zoecarnate April 6, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    It’s a Christian…maybe. Or maybe have that monicker worn too deeply into our mental categories so that it’s shorthand for something meaningless to faithful and infidel alike, eh?

    So etymologically:

    The first being optimistic as opposed to pessimistic; the glass of God’s grace is overflowing. Rooted in fulfilled eschatological hope.

    mystic being (for my purposes) one who lives by the life of Another; animated by Holy Spirit and a God within, around, and permeating all existence.

    friend listener, loyal, confidant. Willing to throw ones lot in with. Not a servant, but not someone who disregards service.

    of Jesus What is there to say about this man, this anointed one? Palestinian revolutionary peasant. Harbinger of God’s Renewed Order. Emmanuel–God with us, the government resting upon his shoulders. State-sponsored torture victim. Second person of the Trinity. Bearer of Father’s true disposition for humanity and the cosmos.

    You dig?

  13. 14 zoecarnate April 6, 2008 at 6:52 pm

    Oh, and Michael–I like DC and Marvel, as well as many independents, like Flaming Carrot. Comics rule! (I say through my pocket protector)

  14. 15 Frances Munro April 23, 2008 at 5:11 pm

    I find your site interesting and openminded to the issue of Christianity and I wonder if you would be interested in the work I am doing with Jesus.

    I am offering a Christ of understanding to all those who read my book A Pathway Through Jesus and it brings an alternative way for all who read it. The book is a compilation of his channelled writings from 2007, relating to life in the 21st century.

    Have a look at http://www.godworldwide.com and see what you think. I am already taking his word forward in seminars. I find people need simple explanations about God, their soul, living spiritually. The church often fails to answer that so Jesus is answering in this way. I believe in putting spirituality into action and not just talking about it. What do you think.

    Love and blessings

    Frances Munro

  15. 16 Standing Solus Christus April 28, 2008 at 3:37 am

    O’ Brother!


    People need Christ-centered preaching and to experience Jesus in elements such as bread, wine and water. This is known as Word and Sacrament.


  16. 17 Olivia May 8, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    Thanks so much for your thoughts and writings on some tough subjects…

    I’ve been looking into more of the ’emergent church’ stuff and have found it to be really interesting. I am currently reading ‘why we’re not emergent’ and it has completely fascinated me.

    Again, thanks for your thoughts and I look forward to reading more of your stuff and welcoming any recommendations that you may have as far as good books/articles go….

    Being Washed In His Grace,


  17. 18 milletea May 21, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    It amazes me how complcated yet totally simple the Christian walk can be. I was a follower of Christ through my own search for God, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Calvary Chapel, Master’s Collage, Biola. I am now 55 and I am no futher or distant from Christ than went I first began. I just know more stuff. The fileing of it is horendus, in my mind. Yet at the end of the day my prayer is, ” Help me Lord to see you and know you better”. I am so sick christians claiming to be “light”. I hope we can alway discuss our journey as but a stich in the tapistry GOD is making with our lives. Thank mike for your honesty and search for the truth with-in.

    You are now officially on my blogroll. I am totally enjoying your blog and seeing the different reactions to your conversations with john crowder. (i happen to love John very much haha)

    I also love comics! YAY!

    Mike- Greetings from Sudan… just wanted to stop in and say I love your heart and your description of who you are… thanks for paying the price to have eyes to see. Our 80 children send their love… Michele

  20. 21 Robert Easter August 20, 2008 at 3:56 am

    Wonderful work, Mike! Glad just to share the same Web with ya! 😀

    Two favors to ask, if it’s not too much trouble- I’d love to get added to your blogroll here, and, second, could you see about fixing my name on the zoecarnate.com site? About half way down the page it has me as Robert Easton. Rob Easton is an Anglican priest who has my respect, but the Lord has seen fit to grace me with the name, Easter, which can be useful.

    Blessings abounding on the whole lot of ya!

  21. 22 Mathew Woodley September 11, 2008 at 9:20 pm

    Hi Mike:

    Hey, thanks for the kind review of my book Holy Fools. By the way, my wife doesn’t have a Blog either so that actually makes four New Yorkers who don’t have a Blog. Gosh, I know, as my kids keep reminding me, I am so out of touch. I’m such a neo-Luddite. But there is hope for my redemption: the Blog will be launched soon. I also just finished a small group study guide for Holy Fools which I’d be happy to send to you. And as soon as I get the Blog up and running, I’ll let you know about it.

    I loved your site. It’s definitely consistent with holy folly: provacative, disruptive, intriguing, challenging and brimming with Jesus. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Matt Woodley

    Hi Michael,

    I operate a website and blog dedicated to some alternative Christian viewpoints on the whole “Abstinence Until Marriage” concept. I’m a 40 year old Christian man who has never been married so you KNOW I have look at this issue in horrifying detail…lol.

    Anyway check out my site and blog if you get a chance. I point out the things Fundamentalist churches will never tell you about premarital sex within the Bible. I do try to have a sense of humor about the issue as well.

    this is brandon andress from Outside the Walls blog. just wanted to know if you would be so kind as to add my new website to your website. http://www.brandonandress.com

    thanks man…peace…


  32. 33 doug sussman December 9, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    Hi Mike:
    I left you a message on Twitter too. I started this website almost a year ago. It’s a hub/aggregator of predictions in a myriad of categories.Also where possible,I track these prognostications.Obviously if there long term forecasts such as George Friedman’s “The Next 100 years”-I don’t track them.

    The only categories I stay away from are psychic,apocalyptic and biblical. It’s just not my thing.But you will see ads on there in those categories.

    If you get the time check the site out. My goal eventually is to have volunteer users from all over the world post entires-in the Wikipedia model. That would improve the content since I’m a one man show.

  33. 34 Kevin Spector January 5, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    Hey Mike –

    Happy new year. I stumbled across your blog and have enjoyed your thoughts. I’m also pretty intrigued about your graduate work and specifically your interest in “sustainable futures”. Keep up the good work and look forward to reading more.

    I have a project supporting afforestation in Israel as part of a effort to embrace and foster Christianity, gift giving, and environmental consciousness. While probably not the same vain as your reference to “sustainable futures”, it caught my ear and would be interested in your thoughts of http://www.christiangreen.com

    I appreciate the link and apologize if it came across as just that or a shameless plug.🙂 I’m genuinely interested in your thoughts.

    Many thanks and keep up the good reading!


  34. 35 Mary Perry-McCormick January 15, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Hi Mike …I just wanted to say thank you. I stopped by your site probably 18 months ago and found all the cool ‘best Jesus-infused’ sites I never knew existed. You also mailed out a link to Kevin Beck’s online free book last year- excellent! I have always seen things differently than most folks in the average church. I just came to feel my husband & I must be must be the only ones. Luckily, I did not feel I was on the wrong track. And I’ve grown enough to forgive or overlook others’ blind spots & shortcomings. But it is nice to know there is a world of seekers out there that are molding faith. I have been changed by my contact with “good soil”. My approach to faith has changed joyfully to the point I feel I am one of those molding faith in my own little ways. So the thanks is for some very helpful “road markers”. Blessings to you…

  35. 36 Matt February 7, 2010 at 8:03 am


    Thanks for the friend request on Facebook. I am in awe of your well-defined vision of yourself and your place in Our Father’s world. I am a 34 y/o basket-case myself who is “roaming through the night to find my place in this world”. (MWS quote mandatory, by the way🙂 )

    Hello Mike,

    Thought that I’d drop in and say Hi. I am a recent author.
    My book is: ‘Spiritual Abuse Recovery: Dynamic Research on Finding a Place of Wholeness’.

    This book is based on my doctoral research into this complex and sensitive church ministry issue. This book provides help for those wounded in their church. It is also a resource for those who teach future church leaders.

    People can contact me at: info@churchexiters.com.

    My website is: http://www.churchexiters.com.

    I have books available if people contact me.

    I was at the CAC Conf. in Albuquerque, NM in April. I was among the first group attending the conf. in the spring of last year.
    Talk to you soon.

    Bye for now,
    Barb O.

    DPRK is called brutal by US when US bombed 18 of its larges cities destroying over fifty percent of buildings and killing twenty percent of DPRK civilians. Imagine what a GULAG US would be if twenty percent civilian population was killed? On 911 only 3000 are killed or 1 in 100,000 aka one thosandth of one percent. US passes “patriot act” allows torture and surveilance of its citizens. The legalism of judeo part of “judeocristianity” allows genocide….remember killing everybody in town as commandment by God in old testament. You learn as a fake follower of Jesus like “Judas ” that supporting the powers that be pays more silver than “bearing your cross”.
    Well I am headed to DPRK to visit and assist the DPRK in clean coal project. I will take my wife and two sons ages 14 and five to Pyongyang to provide aid comfort to those whose families were bombed by USA. War is murder by another name .Religious zealots use religious legalism to excuse murder and supress whatever conscious existed in their heart. Every soldier that kills and gets paid for it is a paid killer . You need the Army chaplain to tell him its alright. Judas was paid too.
