LOVE WINS. from Rob Bell on Vimeo.

I am excited, and proud, that Rob Bell has very publicly gone out on a limb to bring these essential questions into the mainstream of Christian culture. Whether you think they've already been sufficiently addressed or didn't know they existed, I encourage you to take the time for self-investigation and open discussion on this topic with good friends. Don't live in fear. Don't believe in fear.

RECOMMENDED VIEWING: PORTLANDIA

If you have access to IFC via cable, satellite, or the internet, may I recommend to you the invention of SNL's  Fred Armisen and Sleater Kinney's Carrie Brownstein: Portlandia. From an elitist Feminist bookstore and the loca-vore/organic/cruelty-free movement to radical cyclists, Portlandia has a lot of fun showing how things get a little crazy even in great ideas.


So far, Steve Buscemi, Kyle Mclaughlin, and other notable fine thespians have been guests. Now I caution you if you can't take a little ribbing about things you might be passionate about or edgy humor, but otherwise do take a trip to where the dream of the 90s lives on. Episode 3 of 6 will be on this Friday. Here are some clips:
