Rebooting

I haven’t written here in a while cause life got busy and I think that my original project was a bit too narrow. My goal is just to write publicly, to talk about life and its intersection with Christianity. That’s it. No narrow agenda, just learning to walk with the Master.

Come walk with me!!

Ok Readers, it’s time for me to weigh in on the monkey feet toe shoes. I think I have given them a fair trial now, and due to my experience and research, I consider myself an authority on the matter. I have had a pair of Vibrams for over a year now, and on top of that, I’ve read lots of articles, watched youtube videos, and even gone to a barefoot running lecture at REI, all trying to convince myself to keep wearing them after that time I was standing at a stoplight during a run and the car next to me pointed and laughed in my face. Or rather at my feet.

But you know what, they are worth the point-and-laugh. They are that awesome.
I feel I should mention at this point that I was a skeptic, and I was tricked into getting a pair.  My friend Shelby…

Sunday Selections 11.13.11

Just a heads up, I am leaving for Canada for several days and I have no idea if I will have any time to blog, so I am taking a hiatus until December. This week I have been reflection on the idea of the Self, Pride and their relation to Crucifixion of Self and Love Christianity, so my posts are somewhat thematic in that sense. Continue reading

Sunday Selections 11.6.11

November is National Adoption Month, so, may you rejoice in the glorious truth that you have been adopted into the Family of God if you have received Christ as your Savior. Remember those who are Fatherless in this world, both in a physical and a spiritual sense and pray for them.

Note about blogging in general: My schedule turned out to be more crazy than I anticipated, so I am going to lump in Calvin Reflections with my bi-weekly spiritual reflections posts. This should help promote sleep, which turns out to be pretty important. 🙂

For this week, here are some thought provoking and interesting stuff I came across. Continue reading

Bible in 90: Encountering God

I have been reading Genesis the past few days, and I noted something that seemed significant. Further, I was a bit stunned by the fact that I missed an echo of Christ in the Old Testament, a foreshadowing of the glory to come. The thing I noted was this: Continue reading

Sunday Selections 10.30.11

I am not really sure how to introduce this, except to say that I hope that you find these links interesting and helpful. The majority of them are Theology-related, but a few are just interesting secular things that I stumbled across this week. Thus, here are my interesting links of this week. (It was surprisingly difficult to chose).  Continue reading

A Man, A Plan, A Canal, Panama

This post has nothing to do with Palindromes, as fun as they are. The “A Plan” bit is all this post is really interested in, as it is laying out my game plan for posting here. When I first jumped into starting this blog, I did not set any goals for myself, or give my blog a ton of direction (despite the wise advice of a friend to the contrary). My goal for this particular post is to remedy this situation and give my readers a chance to see where I am going with this blog. Continue reading

A New Adventure

Beginning a new thing comes with many emotions and for me, beginning a blog comes with a wide torrent of them. Fear: what will people think of my thoughts?  Do I want to be this open? Excitement: I have a public forum to share my thoughts! I want to share my thought projects and what I am learning! Trepidation: Ought I have started this endeavour? Etc. I chose to put aside the negative things and to take the plunge. It will be a learning experience for me and a challenge which I relish.

This blog is meant to be a place for me to post my thoughts about life, to keep my writing skills sharp, to discipline myself to the task of continuing to learn and to write consistently, to learn to write publicly, and to share what I am learning. I hope that as people walk alongside me in this journey that they will learn and grow from me and that they will choose to interact with me so that I may learn from them and thereby grow myself.

So, here’s to a new endevour for all to grow by. Cheers.
