The responses to Forming Intentional Disciples are still streaming in.

Yesterday, Mary Beth Newkumet of Life After Sunday, wrote:

Thank you for writing your wonderful, prophetic book! You would chuckle to see my oh-so-marked-up copy with it’s many exclamation points in the margins. :)

You see what we see, and you have articulated it so beautifully now for such a wide audience. Bravo and congratulations!

And she added:
As a non-profit, we’ve come up with a Christo-centric template for a parish website that can be a tool of engagement for the new evangelization. We are hopeful that it will help parishioners recognize how the encounter with Christ takes place right in their midst, in a very specific geography, among very specific people.

To make the site as “incarnational” as possible, we’ve taken the parish’s own central image of Jesus and placed it in the middle of the homepage to help folks understand that all that they are and do must be “through him, with him and in him”. Other parish sacred artwork is featured throughout (Beauty!), and then images of parishioners being the Body of Christ in prayer, play, service and rest. We’ve even shown it concretely with a parish map tied to Google maps.

And, you will be happy to see that Jesus is indeed named throughout...by name! :)

Here are a couple of example websites. What do you think?  I love the Pope Benedict quote:
"The happiness you are seeking, the happiness you have a right to enjoy, has a name and a face.
It is Jesus of Nazareth."

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
