Friday Five: the catch-up edition
Five things I should have mentioned here earlier this week, but didn't:

  • Happy 25th anniversary of spiritual journaling/blogging to Andrew Jones, who celebrated this milestone this past Tuesday with a big blog party. Andrew also reflected on his 25 years. He was 17 at the time, working as a cook's apprentice. Driving home from work one evening, Andrew "saw these drunks on the street. i was filled with compassion for them and kinda saw myself going out there and making a difference in their life. I had given my life to Jesus less than a year earlier (again) but God's mission time bomb had not yet gone off inside me. But something happened that night. I called it a 'vision' the next day in my journal. Actually, I bought the journal the very next day and my first entry was on April 4th. I thought i should record what was going to happen because stuff was happening spiritually and it was quite exciting. i had no idea where it would lead."

  • Richard Hall notes that The Lost Gospel of Judas will air on the National Geographic channel this Sunday. I heard something about this on the morning news, too. (Catch the preview.) According to the article Richard cites, the documentary is "based on a document discovered in the 1970s after lying hidden for nearly 1,700 years" and "traces the story of the document, its recent authentication process and analysis, and key insights obtained from the lengthy process of translation and interpretation." More cashing in on the whole Da Vinci Code/gospel conspiracy buzz.

  • My favorite comic book writer has a new book coming out, and just like all the cool bands and comedians these days, he's promoting it via MySpace.

  • Cynthia Dynamite. Need I say more?

  • I'm still not sure what a "pre-goth" is. Maybe it's a Vandal, or a Hun?
