Friday Findings: Organic Church, Marriage, and Tattoos

Frieday Findings on Modern RejectYou may have noticed that the last few weeks have been void of any Friday Findings. For that, I am sorry. Summer time has taken over, what can I say?

But despite that, today I have all kinds of awesomeness to share with you. So let’s get to it:

Why I Love My Organic Church. I’m a part of an organic church and I love it. And actually, this post from Arianne over at a Deeper Story, is about my organic church. That’s right. Arianne is a member of my church family so, if you have interest in knowing what my church looks like and how an organic church operates, go read this.

The First 6 Months of Marriage. The dynamic duo of Allison and Darrell Vesterfelt (the couple behind Prodigal Magazine) both shared a list of the top 6 things they’ve learned in the first 6 months of marriage. I so appreciate the humility, humor, and honesty in what they shared.

Are You in Your 30’s? Frank Viola posted a survey this week for 30 somethings.  He poses, essentially one powerful question to those in their 30’s regarding their faith. If you have time, consider stopping by and taking this quick survey. Also, because Frank rocks.

Books, books, and more Books. Sarah Bessey started a blog series, called 10 Books a Day for a Week. She lists lots of books, from ones she can’t stop reading again and again, to books for little kids, to books for little little kids. It’s great and any book lover would enjoy.

A Good Top 10. Her.meneutics posted their top 10 posts of this year so far. It’s a great list and worth checking out.

A Conversation to Reduce Abortion. If you are passionate about reducing the number of abortions in this country (and I really hope you are) than you will be encouraged by the ideas presented here.

Fear of Tattoos? Are you a Bible-following Christian who is hesitant to get a tattoo? Well, now there is a solution--these super-rad and realistic temporary tattoos from I kinds, sorta want one of each.

Did you find anything share worthy this week? A blog post, an article, a random bit of happiness that will make me smile? Le’t’s hear it!

  1. I’m uber-geeked to read the post about the organic church you and Jonathan have gathering in your House. I will ponder, however, if Mr. Viola has anything to say to those of us in our 40’s? Or are we past our spiritual prime? Ha! Jokes…

    Have an amazing weekend, Nicole. Again, it was pleasant to chit-chat with you via that interesting device called a cell phone (what will they think of next?) and I am looking forward to picking your husband’s brain and spirit regarding organic church. I promise to put it all back when I am done. N one likes brain and spirit stuff scattered about.

    1. Donald,
      I’m looking forward and watchig with great anticipation to seeing how God leads you forward in terms of church. Basically, I want you to start an organic church…if you feel led to do so.

      And don’t worry, Viola started with a 20 something survey ( I cried). Then he did the 30 something survey. Perhaps 40 somethings are next.

      1. Nicole,

        My friend, I am also looking forward to being able to share with you and Jonathan the things He is doing here in CT. What started as a small trickle has become a raging torrent, and I will confess that I am afraid. I’m afraid because I am not apostolic or pastoral in the slightest. I don’t know what to do, really. True, true, perfect love casts out fear and all that, but dang….that doesn’t mean I do not concern myself with the logistics of it all. What if I am off-base? What if I am wrong? What if, what if, what if…

        I’ll be in touch, of course.

  2. so excited to find your blog. i breathed relief finding you and arianne this morning because i live in this place where i feel there is and you guys made me feel not alone. and that is so cool. so i’ll come read again. thanks for being you.

  3. Thanks for the linky love! This is a fab list. Sarah’s book posts have made me want to (buy an ipad and) hunker down with some books and not come up for air for a while! Such good stuff :)
