Merry Christmas from Monkey Town!

by Rachel Held Evans Read Distraction Free

I brought presents!

For moms—a beautiful poem by Cheryl Lawrie about the missing verses between Luke 2: 6 and 2:7.

For my part-time theologians—an interesting conversation about universalism over on Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed blog.

For folks who need a break from all the annoyingly perfect family photos sent with Christmas cards—

For social justice advocates—Global Exchange announces their 2009 “Heroes At Home," and if you haven’t already, you MUST check out Kiva.

For social justice advocates who like to drink—a bottle of Fledgling wine supports literacy initiatives for children.  (There’s nothing quite like advocating under the influence!)

For my fellow blog addicts (from xkcd):

For music lovers—Grooveshark (Dan says he thinks it’s legal)

For list lovers—Time’s “The Tope 10 Everything of 2009” 

And finally, for Learning with Lawrence fans—The Christmas Special (complete with my favorite Lawrence moment EVER!)

I’ll post a poem on Christmas day, and will be back to blogging on Monday. Wishing you all a beautiful holiday, surrounded by lots of food and the people you love most!

Got any online goodies to share?
