    This morning over at Hacking Christianity, Jeremy Smith asks if lottery winnings should be accepted as offerings to the church, given our stance against gambling.  He also offers some examples of small actions other people are taking based on ethical principles, like refusing to eat bananas, buy diamonds, or use ethanol.

    Two of our most tech savvy reconciling pastors are Rev. Tiffany Steinwert and Rev. Jeremy Smith. Tiffany has a blog called Religion is a Queer Thing and also posts over at 7Villages, the official blogging community for the United Methodist Church. Jeremy has a fascinating blog called Hacking Christianity and is an avid Twitter user. He recently posted the following on his Twitter feed, “gearing up for Annual Conference...where's my bright orange tie with matching shoes?” Both Tiffany and Jeremy have Facebook accounts and would want their many friends to read all their entries posted on various parts of the Internet in ONE PLACE!

    A NEW MOTTO? Check out Rev. Jeremy Smith’s blog, “Hacking Christianity.” Smith takes the winner of a recent motto contest, “Our Worst Critics Prefer to Stay,” and applies it to the UMC, with some surprising results. One of the best Methodist blogs, “Locusts & Honey,” in referring readers to Smith’s blog, draws a cogent comment from Jeff the Baptist, just in time for General Conference. (By the way, look over “Locusts & Honey’s” excellent blogroll. Great mix of people and views!).
    • HX.net featured in the Web Evangelism Bulletin, a monthly e-bulletin put out by GospelCom. (Issue 159 ~ April 8th)
    STOP BEING A FRIENDLY CHURCH! What! Actually, what the HackingChristianity blog means is, a church can be seemingly friendly, yet not a place where you can actually make friends. A very important difference:
