Web Site of the Week: Hippie Christian
09:27 PM CDT on Friday, April 28, 2006
This site is maintained by a guy named Kevin - or Cloud, as he was known back in the day. He explains how to live the hippie Christian lifestyle: Study and follow Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, hang out with like-minded believers, talk daily with God. His hippie lifestyle defies some of the stereotypes; he writes that he prefers to stay sober to hear God's voice. But there's no mistaking the site's groovy design - peace symbols, tie-dye and rainbow colors.
There's a silly quiz to determine whether you're a hippie Jesus freak, and a collection of drum rhythms for drum circles. The most poignant writings are found on his blog, linked from the site. The hippie and his wife are taking care of their infant granddaughter while the girl's parents fight drug problems, he says. Grandpa Cloud's musings on love, faith and parenthood are sincere and worth following.
