It appears you have stumbled upon my homepage. Congratulations.
First things first:
And some things that don't require their own page:
- What I'm currently reading (assuming I don't forget to update this, which I probably will do at some point):
- The Saga of Gösta Berling, Selma Lagerlöf.
- Renovation of the Heart, Dallas Willard.
- The Intelligent Investor, Benjamin Graham, revised edition.
- What my current preoccupations are:
- This app, which I only just bought recently. It's just the sort of nerdy, obsessive thing I could really see myself getting into in a serious way.
Basically, several times during the day, as well as after you wake up, and before you go to bed, it asks you a preset list of questions, which you answer. Over time, this becomes a data set, which you can then analyse to figure things out about yourself. Or just use to plot pretty charts and diagrams and things.
Actually, here's a list of questions I'm currently having the app ask me.
- TileMill! Always been fascinated by maps. Maybe you can tell. Discovered this app not long ago. Currently playing around with it in my spare time.
- I heard about the game Nomic years ago and have always been keen to play, but never managed to find a game early enough in its play I didn't feel too intimidated to join. Recently started thinking of initiating a game of my own. Anybody interested?
I have no interest in megachurches with jocular millionaire pastors. I think what happens in them is sociopolitical, not spiritual. I believe the prosperity gospel tries to pass through the eye of the needle. I believe it is easier for a Republican to pass through the eye of a needle than for a camel to get into heaven. I have no patience for churches that evangelize aggressively. I have no interest in being instructed in what I must do to be saved. I prefer vertical prayer, directed up toward heaven, rather than horizontal prayer, directed sideways toward me. I believe a worthy church must grow through attraction, not promotion. I am wary of zealotry; even as a child I was suspicious of those who, as I often heard, were “more Catholic than the pope.” If we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, we must regard their beliefs with the same respect our own deserve.
