Sites Unseen

"Here is an exhaustive roundup of Christian sites...The emphasis is on "alternative" Christian resources. There are enough surprises to draw you in and keep you engaged for hours."
Thank you, Dallas Morning News, for making us your website of the week!

Wecome to Sites Unseen. We scour the Internet so you don't have to. On this rather unwieldy page are surprisingly well-organized connections for you – to bloggers worth reading, networks and movements making a difference, and churches that won’t make you have to go into therapy. Among other things.

Sites Unseen was started nearly a decade ago by two college roommates dissatisfied by Christianity-as-usual, and looking to share a decidedly alternative take on what it means to be a friend of God in the way of Jesus. Since then, Mike has become an opti-mystic advocate of things indie and Jesusy, and Philip is, well, the worst atheist ever. They’ve lately been joined by Jonathan, who keeps them all in line.

10 years in, while many of the players of the alt.Christian milieu have changed, the focus of Sites Unseen remains the same: to provide off-the-beaten-path resources to the right-brained and left-out in Christ-shaped faith and spirituality; to share safe and generative resources for the faithful, seekers, doubters, and inquiring media types.

Sites Unseen is not for everyone, but we do appeal to: emergents, missional folk, house/simple/organic churchers, contemplatives, progressives, grace junkies, new monastic communitarians, burned-out ministers, wide-eyed nonprofit and justice workers, Jesus Movement alumni, charismatics and Pentecostals who color outside the lines, pissed-off agnostics wondering if all Christians have lost their minds, alt.worship liturgical maestros, Integral map-makers, anarchists, free-thinkers, and anyone who asks questions and seeks a deeper connection to the Divine Mystery that – we sense and hope – undergirds us all.

Pardon our dust. We’re hoping to renovate in a big way soon, pending a generous patron who will enable us to fully join the 21st century. In the meantime, you can donate toward our goal in whatever amount you’d like using the Paypal link below, if the Spirit so stirs in you.

Whoever you are, welcome – to the 8,000-links meta-directory Sites Unseen!

Denominational Peace Fellowships

Now to our ears, "denomination" rhymes with "abomination"; we'll be happy when the post-denominational transition is complete and we'll no longer have to worry about the human-created institutions that divide sisters and brothers in Christ. But insofar as they're going to be with us for another decade or two, you should see what is going on in these denominations with regards to honoring Jesus, our Prince of Peace. A lot of the nitty-gritty work of creative, non-violent engagement with the powers is going on in these fellowships. Support them.

Through heightened spiritual awareness and action, human trafficking could become a thing of the past.

The Creation In Christ

Thankfully, the "disposable earth" mindset (that had more to do with Western consumerism than authentic Christian faith) is disappearing, as believers are realizing that whether Jesus is returning next Thursday or not, He wants us to cherish and steward His Creation. Here are some of the lamentably few folks who are offering Christ-centered reflection on environmental problems and solutions.

Our Sisters In Christ

It is a spiritual fact that women are free in Jesus Christ, and are free to express themselves in the Christian community, in family, and the world as a whole. Unfortunately, due to lack of attentiveness to the Spirit, and lack of context from the Scripture, many in the Christian world wish to minimize this freedom. We think this occurs at great expense to our sisters in the Lord, and we can no longer keep silent on the matter. Here are some resources that will benefit you, whether you are female or male.

Here you can find a pretty decent church. Made of flawed people certainly, but working to overcome flawed premises. What is "decent" IOHO (In Our Humble Opinion)s? Well, a church where knowing Jesus is the central focus, where grace is lived and where authenticity is cherished. And, hopefully, where fully participatory body life and community can grow. We realize that this is a tall order and we certainly haven't visited all of these churches to be able to personally endorse them. However, we've been around the block a few times (putting in about 10 denominations between the two of us), so we've sifted through the ones that look like a nightmare even on the Web.

Post Church?

As finding and forming faith continues to morph in the 21st century, we're becoming aware of a phenomenon that has always been with us: Christians, both passionate and puzzled, who are moving beyond existing church structures of any kind. Dubbed "basement church" and "subconscious church" by some and "de-churched" by others, here is a concise but significant collection of sites exploring this reality.

Old-School Monks Yes, we think our Reformation brethren and sistren were onto something when they agreed that Jesus-followers should all live consecrated lives, without division between monks and monk-nots. Lest we think we've got it all together, though, we must say that monastaries and convents contain some amazing people and resources for fellowship with God and community. Far from exhaustive, here are some of the monastaries, convents, and retreat grounds that we've noticed.

What Sites Unseen is for scouring the Web for alternative Christianity, is for all things worship. Which for me is a little heavy-handed-ly mainstream/institutional at times (see articles, f'r instance, decrying the idea of simple and open churches), but a faithful record of where worship is going in non-alt. circles these days.

Whiz-Bang PoMo Ministry

Disclaimer: Just so you know: Coming from a tradition that cherishes the reality of the priesthood of all believers, we are not necessarily endorsing all the sites contained herein. Don't get us wrong--we really love what most of these folks are doing. A few, however, seem to be just more marketing and "target audience" tools. (Don't worry. We're not talking about your site. Just that other guy's. :) )

We realize that this goes against the grain of the prevailing paradigm, but We don't need specially targeted and branded ministry! We need to love God and neighbor, to do justice, love mergy, and walk humbly with the divine. As a generation, in an unfolding mileu, we have crucial need for creative and visionary leadership. If this is you, we welcome your voice here.

Training/Apprenticeship Schools

You know, Jesus apprenticed twelve followers, Paul apprenticed six (Who were they? You might wonder. Click here for more info), and we still think that apprenticeship to Christ in a natural environment is the best way to raise up workers in the Reign of God. Of course, there are a lot of different perspectives and expectations concerning "spiritual education" and in any event, we've listed our favorite schools here. You'll notice that many of them are unaccredited, and even the ones that are are fairly unorthoprax in their structure. This is by design, and we feel you will get the most rewarding educational experience through such a venue.

Theology, whew! I O.D.'d on its heady portents when part of one of the "brainier" denominations years back. The seemingly endless self-referential quality of it, and the pride and narrowness to which it was held, really turned me off from the pursuit altogether. In intervening years, I've realized that "theology" is not necessarily a dirty word. Its best definition is one offered by Henri Nouwen (who said in turn that it came from ancient Christian sources), meaning "union with God in prayer." If theology can have a contemplative dimension, and if it can be a bringing of people together for open discussion leading to Christ, our truth, I'm all for it. Here you will see theology sites of a dizzying array of perspectives, and some of the best sites, which deliberately foster dialogue on what it means to be part of the Story of God. So, don't overload your brain at the expense of your spirit, but, if you're of a mind to...enjoy.

I've resisted such a section for a long time because eschatology ("the study of last things") can be such a divisive--not to mention corny--subject. But when I see eschatology playing such a huge role in everything, from science to spirituality to global politics, I realize that a sane discourse about the Christian story's understanding of "the end" (and what comes after!) is so needed. It affects our image of God, what we drive, and how (even if!) we vote. So, don't expect this section to be a democracy; Please, don't submit your Left Behind fansites for consideration. :) I'll be hand-picking some sites that, while I may not be in 100% agreement with them, raise textual, contextual, and spiritual issues we need to face as we rethink last things and new beginnings for the 21st century.

Unlike theology, there is absolutely nothing even remotely salvageable from philosophy. (Wink-wink) So don't even try. Okay, well, if you're an egghead who wants to approach "postmodernism" from a more intellectual standpoint (and maybe toss around terms like "post-structuralism," "neo-foundationalism," and "critical realism" at the next night out with the boys), then go ahead, by all means: Read on.

CHURCH HISTORY: (History of Believers Outside Institutional Religion)
by Mike Morrell

I am intensely interested in history, and have learned a decent amount of standard church history in college and textbooks. However, I've always found something missing in standard accounts of church history, like a large forgotten cloud where there should be lively stories told. I've wanted to learn more. I see two "poles" that should be held in tension. One is that to be in God's will one needs only to love Him, and Him alone. He is to be our only standard, our only Final Word. No people on the earth, including the first-century believers, are worthy to be imitated in toto. The other "pole" is that there is a great "Cloud of Witnesses" of those gone before us, and that they are comprised of everyone who has ever been received by Jesus, throughout all time. We can learn and be edified by all of them, and every stream of the visible church. But somewhere in between these poles (holding to Jesus as All and acknowledging every believer as precious and worthwhile) is an electrifying center, as we look at those bodies of believers who were a true depiction of our Lord's Body and Presence on the earth, who have had a strong desire for love, peace, and justice. However selfish, inconsistent, or imperfect their seeking is, they will not, even in their sin, consider a religious group that has a history of forced conversions, strong military connections, and the oppression of women and the poor. They are seekers like we are.

I for one am encouraged by the testimony of the Priscillians, Montanists, Donatists, Novatians, the early Celtic Church, Waldensians, the Community at Kunwald, the Lollards, the Hussites, The United Brethren, the Anabaptists, the believers in Meaux, the Moravians, the Philadelphia Societies (mystics at Berleburg), the Quakers, the Mennonite Brethren in Russia, the Stundists, the Believers in Omsk, the early Nazarenes, the believers in Dublin, the early Plymouth Brethren, the Little Flock in China, the Church in India, the Church in Nepal, and our own Jesus Movement. There are many other groups being discovered as the research expands. There are many more links for this section than those listed here. Some of these sites are good, some are weird, wrong historically, pompous and inflammatory. So surf these with a grain of salt. (If you want to purchase "hard copy" books on this subject, the best two are Pilgrim Church by H.E. Broadbent and The Torch of the Testimony by John W. Kennedy.
(If you want, a sample chapter of the latter can be found here.)

I'd recommend a couple of helpful links
