Catholic Commons

Turns out a few of my friends have been keeping their interesting new blog a secret from me. Fortunately, I have discovered it.

Catholic Commons is a blog run by several lay or ordained members of the Anglican Church of Canada.  Their mission is “to seek the Kingdom of God by reclaiming the social, political and economic work of the Church.” In their recent (and first) edition you will find the following among a smorgasbord of reflection:

Jeff Metcalfe speculates on changing the world (the Kingdom of God) with Zizek and Adorno

Andre Forget enlightens us on The Left’s Response to the Tea Party and what it Reveals

Bruce Myers asks “Facing “a new sobriety,” where does the movement for Christian unity go from here?

Ashley Cole reflects on her experiences living with catholics and working at Romero House in T-dot (Toronto, for all of you who are not savvy with Canadian slang)

Scott Bergen reviews Queer Theology: Rethinking the Western Body

They have posted one edition, and it appears their endeavor is to post monthly. I for one will be keeping an eye open.
