Joe Guada, good friend, fellow blogger and wonderful podcaster is hanging up his pod (or whatever it is podcasters hang-up).
Emily, my wife, turned 26 on Friday (the 17th). Thursday evening we celebrated by going out to dinner at a nice restaurant and and taking the night off. Friday evening, we stayed at home and made dinner and hung out with our housemates a bit.
As a follow-up from yesterday’s article I wanted to mention “Buy Nothing Day.” Adbusters does an event every year where they encourage people to not shop on one of the biggest shopping days of the year – November 25th (Saturday). Emily and I will be joining them and I’d like to extend that invitation toContinue reading “Join Me on Buy Nothing Day – November 25th”

With that said,Continue reading “FAQs: Why Go to Fuller Seminary for Your Ph.D.?”

Yesterday I started class. Now it’s official, I have been a doctoral student for 1 day, and at the moment I am still pretty excited about this new adventure (and also unsure, I must confess). I am taking a class with Dr. Nancey Murphy where we will be studying the Catholic philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre.

It was my first experience in an unprogrammed meeting and I really appreciated my experience there and it got me thinking more about queries. One thing I have always loved about Quaker practice are the use of queries,Continue reading “Some (Borrowed) Quaker Queries on Simplicity”
This morning I came over to Fuller’s Coffee Shop, made myself a mug of Cafe’ au Lait, plugged in my iPod and am listening to Starflyer 59’s new album, My Island. I’ve cracked open mywebsite code, uploaded the bleeding-edge version of Subtle, and am doing a few little things here and there to tidy thingsContinue reading “Live Update – Now Finished”
