MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. -- While I've been here on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan for a gathering of my three sisters' families and most of our various children and grandchildren, you get set you free again this weekend to do a bit of Internet religion exploration.
First, take a look at what Religion News Service has to offer by clicking here. The folks at RNS do an excellent job. I wish all religion journalists at local media outlets around the country were as competent.
Next, although it's often of lighter fare than you'll find at RNS, Beliefnet.com usually carries something of interest. You can see what's being offered there by clicking here.
And if you want some commentary about how the media cover religion, the folks at GetReligion.org can fill that bill. Just click here.
Always check out the engaging daily offerings of my friends over at ReadTheSpirit.com, overseen by David Crumm, former Detroit Free Press religion writer. Get there by clicking here.
Finally, move your eyeballs to the right side of this page and look for the "Check this out" headline. I've got various essays and other offerings there that might interest you. But read them carefully. There will be a test when I get back to normal business here in a few days.

SEND YOUR SPIRIT FOR A TUNE-UP
PITTSBURG, Mo. -- I had a board meeting here Friday of the Hermitage Spiritual Retreat Center. If you're looking for a lovely place (on Lake Pomme de Terre, about two hours southeast of Kansas City) to refresh your spirit and give your soul a car wash, check it out. It's a quiet place in a noisy world.

P.S.: I invite you to go to the Downtown Branch of the Kansas City Public Library this Wednesday evening to hear my friend and fellow Second Presbyterian Church elder Douglas Hundley talk about why it's important still to read the King James Version of the Bible. For details, click here.
