I’m about to bloody my theological knuckles, so buckle up. Strap in. Brace yourself. And hold onto something. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. I figured I should put that warning there since there’s a chance I’ll be metaphorically and rhetorically crackin’ skulls with today’s post. And I can’t take credit for the inspiration of these words. I blame the twitter user ENT Monkey. Dude even has a website. It all started in the early morning hours today with

It’s Monday. Commence with the gnashing of teeth and tearing of ritual sackcloth! I’m back podcasting about church, Jesus and the future of it all. I’m a bit bonkers and wander with my ideas but it’s fifteen minutes worth of marinating on the future of The Church. Give it listen and tell me how wrong I am.
Sometimes getting away from it all is the best medicine. Upon leaving my former employer I began to discover as I job searched that I had more time than I knew what to do with.

Nicely played God of All Creation, nicely played.” Yep. Had one of those moments tonight. And it was brilliant. The biblical basis for my devotional tonight was out of Judges in chapter 7 where Gideon is tasked with destroying an enemy of the Israelites. But God doesn’t do
I don’t know who told me that Adult Life was going to be awesome and full of amazing adventures and that I would be able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted with whoever I wanted but they lied. I was tricked into the Adult Life and I’m going to write a very angry letter to whoever is in charge of this mess and give them the what for and a few slaps with a fish for good measure.
Always the innovator in the National Blog Writing Month world, I decided a podcasty thing would be fun. So, here we are. I talk about religion, Faith and Christianity in some pretty intense manners to be aware. And feel free to comment and tell me, ask me, talk at me, etc. Woot.
I have a friend who is a new Christian and is navigating the world through blog entries on her blog – Navigating Christianity. I’ve gotten a kick out of reading her entire library of entries for many reasons. One is that it’s fascinating to see my Faith through another’s eyes.
