an update

Hi.

I’ve not posted in a bit of a while. The pictures below have been part of the reason. As has an accompanying peace in just getting away from the usual topics.

I’m starting to get back into the swing of things. My goal for this summer is to learn German. Read theology. And generally get my mind and being geared up for PhD studies this Fall. So, hopefully, this means some thoughts will wander though my brain and seek a bit of light hereabouts.

In the meantime, I have a couple interesting links.

Kristin Myers has a post on boycotting Amazon, which connects to a post written by Wess Daniels. Both are interesting. I’ve added my thoughts in the comments over at both blogs. I want to make note of Kristin too because she is an interesting writer coming at various topics as a graphic designer. When I TAed a class last summer on Emerging/Missional churches she wrote one of the most fascinating papers I read.

Wess is also worth noting again and well worth visiting regularly. He is, I think, one of the key future leaders/thinkers of the Society of Friends. His efforts have really sparked my own hopes the Quakers have a fruitful future and might be able to even reignite more in this present spiritual climate. Brilliant and thoughtful guy.

  1. Patrick – Thanks for the very kind words, and thanks for adding to our discussion on this topic as well.

    Patrick, I have to agree with you on the Amazon thing. Most of the evangelical Christian bookstores I know seem to carry the same Christian Living fluff books or books from the Willowcreek/Saddleback contigency. Border’s and Barnes & Noble can be good but it’s hard to find what you are looking for. I like the recommmendations and seeing what others put on their lists. It helps me to bridge gaps to other books and other authors.

    One other thing, I do support a local Catholic bookstore because it seems to be a great source of books on the Early Church Fathers.
