Do me a favor

I haven't received too many comments recently, but in the past I've gotten some that were very interesting. So I was wondering if every reader could do me a favor...on the assumption that anything I write would be of any interest to anyone. HA!

#1. First off, COMMENT! I know it can be a bit tricky because E-blogger makes you jump through a few hoops to post anything it seems. For some odd reason, I seem to have to hit send/post 3 times to get it to work. Keep at it, because I do enjoy hearing what other's think.

#2. If you comment, could you please tell me how in the world you ever found my stuff to begin with. Seriously, I got a very helpful response from a fella named Tim over in New Zealand. How he found my blog is beyond me. (Kiwi!) So let me know if you don't mind. It certainly sparked my curiosity.

2a) Tim "the Kiwi", I wanted to thank you for your explanation on Open Theism. The way you explained it was extremely helpful...and a great metaphor. (I still hold to a Singular view. But I did go out and get Boyd's book so I could understand it for myself.) Anyway, I was going to e-mail you, but you left no address of any kind. Hint, hint for you and anyone else.

2b) OK, so I have received a couple of responses from folks somewhere in S.E. Asia. (Seriously...ME...HOW????) Anyway, as you can tell by my typo's, I am still mastering English. This also means that I can't read the Chinese Alphabet...the same goes for Korean, Japanese, Sanskrit or Thai. (Which looks really cool, though.) So PLEASE everyone, write in English. I really & truly wish that I could read & speak many other language, but for now English is it for me.

Oooh wait, I'm a big fan of the BBC,
so I am fairly fluent in "English" English too.

#3. Normally I write about what ever pops into my head that deals with Christian Spirituality in one form or another. Sometimes it's fairly serious stuff. Other times it is least to me at any rate. (Ya bunch of stiffs!) Anyway, feel free to ask some questions or suggest some topics. It could be rather helpful at times when the gray matter that sits between my ears functions more like cottage cheese.

OK, so to sum it up,
Comments ("Joe, you really & truly have brought Suckiness to a whole new level of art.")
How did you find my blog?
How do I contact you? (Assuming you won't pepper spray me)
Write in English, please!!!!!!
Questions & suggestions.

OK, time for bed. Nighty, night.




  1. Joe,

    I always enjoy taking a work walk with you where ever it may lead at times. From the serious theology and doctrinal examinations, to perusing the state of the contemporary church or just watching old Saturday morning cartoons, you always have a good word for me and a different and unusual perspective on this thing we call life.

    I found your blog by a link posted by a friend on Facebook concerning Water for those who need it. Our church had been participating in the Advent Conspiracy and raises money each year for this very cause.

    You know how to reach me, of course. Just hit my blog, FB me or shoot me an email. If you ever feel the need for my phone number, let me know and I'll send it to ya. :)

    Something I would like to maybe see here is a question and answer posting. I know questions can be dicey at times, especially from such a diverse audience, but something new always comes from a fresh perspective on what seems to us our "old" problems.

    Hope you are getting some rest and feeling better. Please only work as hard and as much as you need. We only get so many days to live ya know...and they call it life...NOT work!

    I'll leave you with this...

    "Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it."


  2. Well, at least you're getting a little closer. :P

  3. So who ever you are from Asia, how did you ever find my blog??? BTW: I have no idea if you are male or female, so from now on I shall just refer to you as "BOB."

    Peace, yo!
