long time, no see

Time flies whether you're having fun or not, doesn't it? Well, we have some fun around here, but mostly it's just been full to the brim with stuff! Sometimes I wonder if this country's obsession with "stuff" as in material goods translates to also acquiring days full of "stuff" to do. At the end of a day of running around from one thing to another, I feel like I should have more to show for all the work.

Every semester, I try to support my student organizations by going to their events. So, this week I attended Calvin's Philosophy Symposium where Peter Rollins spoke. He's an Irish philosopher and writer who started a collective called Ikon. Everyone really listened to him and seemed to enjoy the talk. I just tried to soak-up all he said so I could sort-through it later. Really wonderful stuff. I'm going to pick up his latest book,
The Fidelity of Betrayal: Towards a Church Beyond Belief.

Rollin's blog is here. The coolest thing about blogs is that I not only get to read smart people's thoughts and experiences, but I get introduced to a whole set of resources they're looking at. Like Jon Birch, this cartoonist with ASBO Jesus.

This weekend I don't have to work at all!! And I just found the cord to Sheila (my camera), so I can finally upload some pictures! Hope to post more, but I guess I always say that. :)
