Well, between the postings by bloggers and a couple of emails I've gotten, it seems the sermon from the Service of the Living Tradition wasn't universally loved. That's an understatement.
Now, I have to see that video.
I'm glad that bloggers, despite their certain exhaustion, are writing. Joseph Santos-Lyons (Radical Hapa), in particular, gives some fresh background.
The most interesting contributions, however, in the last day comes from the married couple, Louise and Sean, writing as delegates for the Church of the Larger Fellowship. Not only are the blogging in tandem, but have given the most detail about the Open Space Technology (OST) process to date. I'm also impressed that they self-organized into an information resource for inquirers, when the staff was overwhelmed with larger problems that needed uninterrupted attention.
Speaking of OST, the GA-OST blog is showing signs of life. From here (link) you can download the topics schedule. But bless my heart they look like Convention Bingo playing cards. (A related phenomenon.) Most of the topics are a bit too meta to be addressed constructively, I think. Also, because of all the buzzwords, I keep expecting to see the word proletariat. But I'll wait and see how it proceeds.
