I spend a lot of time online while bfing, and I think it would be a good opportunity to read some good writing on faith.

Does anyone have any good blogs/websites to recommend? Any denomination is fine.

There are bazillians!

What's your bent, though? Evangelical or more liberal?

Personally, I like Relevant magazine online.

The Blaze, The Bible Society, Patheos, Sojourners

Well, there's always mine.  ;)

More seriously, I guess it depends what you're looking for.  Would you like some solid scholarly stuff?  Everyday life and faith?  Worship?  Something else?

I like Rob Buckingham's blog posts, from Bayside City Church in Melbourne. He writes quite topical blogs - some I vehemently disagree with, but others I love, and then others are quite thought provoking. His church is a non-denominational church in a pentecostal style.

He and his wife were two of the spiritual advisors to the Bali 9, and his wife, Christie, was with one of the boys on their last day.

I love Ange's thoughts. Search on EB for Mitis Angelam and the link is in her signature. It would probably be easier if I  just 'favourited' it myself, wouldn't it?

Snap, Ange!

Cheers guys.

I'll check out Anges!

I'll google the others.

I belong to an Anglican church (very relaxed) but I wouldn't call myself Anglican. I've got pentecostal leanings. I also don't think I have the brain space at the moment for scholarly stuff

I appreciate your ideas.

I really like Rachel Held Evans. She's not writing much at the moment, but she wrote an incredibly powerful piece in January about Martin Luther King Day, the history of the (US) church's involvement in civil rights movements, and our capacity to be blind to our prejudice. I've been sharing it far and wide!

I thought I had seen this somewhere.  Here's a list of 15 great Christian blogs by women:  http://www.sharefait...ign=SF-Mag07.29

I didn't compile the list and can't vouch for the quality of them all, but might give you some interesting stuff to look through?

Thanks guys. I'm starting with Ange and Jamie the very worst missionary (purely based  on the kooky name), and have a look at all of them.

I'm in to the encouraging style of A Holy Experience, and particularly her focus on being thankful in all things. But her style is very specific and poetry-like, so not for everyone.

I like Lysa TerKeurst's writings (www.lysaterkeurst.com)

I think she just had a baby?
I have read her book on Biblical Womanhood and found her to be a very respectful and balanced writer.  

I used to love reading sermons from Paul Walton's Getting There blog, but I think he has retired.

Ah, I knew she was due around now but hadn't been following too closely.

Sad news about Rachel Held Evans, the blogger referred to earlier in this very old thread, who is now a mother of two young children.
Rachel is in an induced coma after having unexplained seizures while being treated in hospital for an infection.

Yes it is so sad. I’ve was so blessed by reading Searching For Sunday and am part way through Inspired. Both highly recommended books.
I follow her page and couldn’t believe when her husband posted that over Easter.

Has there been an update? I saw the initial tweets about her being in an induced coma. Flu + UTI + AB allergy = terrible combo :-(
