Monday Monkery – Day after Easter Sunday Edition

Pastor Dan, who does our weekly iMonk Saturday Ramblings, got Holy Saturday off this past weekend so that he could focus on all the special services he was participating in. I remember those marathon occasions from when I was a pastor and I’ll be very surprised if Dan’s not sleeping in today. And tomorrow. But […]

Have I Got a Super Church for You!

Why no one has done this before, I don’t know. But it only makes sense as one of the best ways ever to engage the culture of the U.S. for Christ. Last year, the top four television programs in terms of viewership were: (1) the Super Bowl, (2) the Super Bowl (delayed broadcast), (3) the […]

The New, “Simpler” Way of Christmas Shopping

I can count on one hand the number of times I go “shopping” over the course of a year. Perhaps the following story will explain why. I’m apparently bad at it. Our latest shopping adventure — it started with talk about getting a new coffeemaker. The last few years, Gail and I have taken advantage […]

You Can Sleep In If You Want

We here at InternetMonk like to think we are an indispensable part of your life, and this morning, we are going to prove it by providing you with all the reason you need to skip the madness of early-morning shoppers and allow you to stay in your pajamas inside your warm house. It is the […]

In Preparation for Halloween…

On Thursday, we will post our annual classic Michael Spencer Halloween rant. In preparation for that, let’s look and see what some folks are doing to mark the occasion this year.

The Real Silence of the Lambs

From David Hayward at The Naked Pastor:

Street Corner Philosophy

Eloquent, yet accessible.

Midweek Monkery 5/22/13

Yesterday, we learned that some denominations are considering making 45 the age cut-off for ordination. Since I haven’t seen 45 for a few years and am much closer to many higher numbers (that will remain unmentioned), today’s Midweek Monkery features some smiles and laughs I’ve had lately with regard to the subject of getting older. […]

Midweek Monkery 5/15/13

Welcome to Midweek Monkery, Lutheran edition. I hope you will enjoy a few of the things that have made me laugh as I have started to learn more about the Lutheran community, especially the immigrant Lutheran community in the U.S. If you are a laughing Lutheran, I’d love to have you chime in today with […]

Midweek Monkery 5/8/13

I Can’t Believe I Didn’t DVR This How did this happen? I apparently missed the media event of the winter. Where were my iMonks? I needed you! According to the New York Times, NRK, the state broadcaster of Norway, ran their TV show, “National Firewood Night,” back in February. Somehow, they found a way to edit […]
