Here are some good articles I found on the web recently...

"Leading from the Margins" by Len Hjalmarson. This article from The Ooze urges a new style of Church leadership.

"The Holy Spirit Calls Women to Lead" by Andrew Thompson, an Elder in the Arkansas Conference. This article (from The United Methodist Reporter) is a good brief overview of why we have (and should celebrate) female clergy.

"He is not here" by Fred Craddock, one of the greatest preachers of the past 100 years. This article from The Christian Century gives a fine brief summation of the account of Jesus' Resurrection found in Mark 16:1-8.

"Church Politics" by Andrew Odom, from Relevant Magazine, argues for a more relational, less program-oriented ecclesiastical polity.

"Saddleback Church celebrates 20,000th Baptism"
by Kristine Noelle,
in The Christian Examiner. Rick Warren may have several theological problems, but his sincerity and devotion have certainly borne much fruit.

"Betrayed Again" by John Wilson explains the bizarre nature of the so-called "Gospel of Judas". It's taken from Christianity Today.
