Christianity and community action

When it comes to Christianity it is, like any other religious belief, something that fascinates me, yet I cannot ignore the notion that religion as a subject leaves me cold whereas having a relation with the main subject of the Christian religion, the Lord Jesus Christ, inspires and enthuses me. This is what motivates my community activism, even though many of my community blogs are meant as religion neutral. Sometimes, however, when I do write, I relate particularly to the subject of Christianity, whether historically, how it manifests itself within the culture (good and bad) or in reflecting on various doctrines and applications. What follows is a rather mixed bag but all the articles referred to are significantly to do with the subject of Christianity and, more often than not, not in some ethereal way but rather as to how it impacts on the community.
