Geez Magazine

Check this out... My mate existential punk over in the U S of A has sounded the heads-up trumpet on Geez Magazine and it looks way fab. Here's a quote from their mandate:
Geez is your story of experiments with truth.
Because it’s time we untangle the narrative of faith from the fundamentalists, pious self-helpers and religio-profiteers.

And let’s do it with holy mischief rather than ideological firepower.

We’ll explore the point at which word, action and image intersect, and then ignite.

So let’s blaspheme the gods of super-powerdom, instigate spiritual action campaigns and revamp that old Picture Bible.

We’ve set up camp in the outback of the spiritual commons. A bustling spot for the over-churched, out-churched, un-churched and maybe even the un-churchable. A location just beyond boring bitterness.

A place for wannabe contemplatives, front-line world-changers and restless cranks. A place where the moon shines quiet, instinct runs mythic and belief rides a bike (or at least sits on the couch entertaining the possibility).
I am NOT the same kind of Christian that the American right-wing Republican corporate church golf club wants the world to be. I am post-Evangelical and believe in growing-up again as well as being born-again.

Geez looks something sweet that really captures my attention and is written by like-minded people. Anything that keeps Scriptually-based and yet annoys the corporate Church has my support. It would be wonderful to see contributions from my fav bloggers like Jonny B, tallskinnykiwi, and DJ Haggis aka weebeautifulpict...and distribution in the UK.

Check it out: Geez Mag and give it your support.
