catching up on recent explorations, now that february’s here and we can perhaps relax a bit

For many regular readers of the blog, the Christmas Break and/or the first weeks of school might be a time when blog-reading becomes a little sporadic. So I wanted to use today’s post to point you to some of the bloggin’ you might have missed – especially the posts that have been most popular and most-commented-on in the couple of months.

And if you’re new to Exploring College Ministry, it’s a great chance to catch up on some of the recent “explorations”!

two big series!

an outsider’s view on specific campus ministries

I’ve had some neat chances to encounter a few major college ministries in BIG ways recently, leading to a few posts presenting an “educated outsider’s perspective” on these national groups. And those posts have received some great comments, too!

  • After visiting the Urbana conference, I examined how the conference reflects its “parent,” InterVarsity (and if you’re interested, I also noted the crazy way I ended up at Urbana in the first place)
  • I observed the relationship between a local Campus Crusade Winter Conference and its national org
  • After seven focused weeks exploring Chi Alpha ministries, I discussed some distinctives of that national group

Plus, I posted some thoughts on recognizing the variations within organizations (as exemplified by one particular group of United Methodist college ministers).

and finally, if you missed it, I posted a very merry, T-shirt-filled Christmas card to you!

Anything I’m leaving out?
