A thoughtful blog post often provides me with fodder for meditation for hours or even days. There are a lot of newer or new-to-me blogs I’ve been appreciating lately so I thought I’d do a little round up for you. These are all blogs with lots of contributors, so you never know quite what to expect.

Good Letters, the blog from Image. The recent entry from Kelly Foster on The Tenth Leper and the one from Sara Zarr talking about the effects of starting antidepressants are both fantastic.

Her.meneutics, the women’s blog from Christianity Today, gives women’s perspectives on news and issues noteworthy to the Christian woman. I have been pleasantly surprised when I venture into the comments on the good dialogue it produces.

Think Christian, with its tagline of “no such thing as secular,” addresses a very broad range of subjects from a theological perspective and engages readers to think Christianly about all of life.

This is Our City is a project Christianity Today launched to highlight how Christians are engaging their cities. The posts are longer, magazine-style articles, and it is updated a little less frequently.

  1. Kristen, I enjoy her.meneutics as well. It has some really good writing, and the comments are (for the most part) good at keeping the conversation going. I’ve also just started looking at Think Christian. One of the writers there, Karen Swallow Prior (who also writes at her.mi), emailed me about it and encouraged me to check it out.

    Thanks for the recommendation to go over to Kelly’s site to read the article on the lepers. That was some good insight she had going there. I left a comment with my take on the cultural aspects of the event (it’s apparently awaiting moderation just now).


  2. Thanks for this. I’ve been enjoying some of these, but didn’t know about “Think Christian” or “This is Our City.”
