Is Pastor Bruce Gerencser a Theonomist?

Last week someone found my blog by searching for this phrase. It’s stuff like this that makes me wish Google Analytics provided more information about individual searches because I’d love to know who was asking the question and why they were so curious about theological positions held by a former pastor many years ago. Bruce…






How to Be an Interesting Quiet Person

A few weeks ago a new reader found this blog by searching for this phrase. The answer is quite simple: occasionally share the delicious thoughts you prefer to keep to yourself. Those of you who have met me in person know how quiet I usually am in large social gatherings. Some folks have the irrepressible urge to…






The Controversies of 2113

One of my favourite blogs, Paleofuture, shows us what people in the past thought life would be like in the future. Some predictions are quite accurate, others are laughable off the mark. In the spirit of Paleofuture here are my predictions for the biggest controversies of 2113: Should android-human relationships be legally recognized? How do you…






Stairs to No End

Stairs to no end from Daniella Koffler on Vimeo. This is a parable about asking questions, the fear that inhibits us and how difficult it is to stifle curiosity permanently. When I was 11 years old I thought all adults had to have children especially if they ended up in a longterm relationship. The few…






3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Agree with Everything You Read

Recently I had a conversation with someone who doesn’t understand my tendency to read blogs and books written by people with whom I disagree. Why not focus on everyone who sees the world exactly the way that you do? Well, many of the writers I follow do agree with me. There’s comfort in spending time with…






A Response to Nothing is More Important

Late last year my friend Zora blogged her replies to what a search engine came up with when she typed in the phrase, “nothing is more important.” A few weeks after she posted this entry I kept finding articles about how google filters what we see on the Internet. You and I can enter the…






How to Rediscover Your Sense of Wonder

With his permission today I’m blogging a response to a semi-recent tweet from @mike_friesen : Somedays, I wonder how I can rediscover the beauty seen through the eyes of a child without the naivete. I want wonder and awe with wisdom. [sic] This is what I’d recommend: 1. Stop watching commercials.  There’s something about advertising…






How to Celebrate the Holidays When You Don’t Have an Extended Family

A new reader recently found this blog by searching for this phrase. It’s a great question, one in which is just as applicable for people who live far away from or haven’t formed a close or healthy relationship with  their extended family. My family moved several times when I was growing up. For four years…






Are Most People Happy?

Fair warning: this post contains mild spoilers for seasons one and two of Mad Men.  Earlier this summer Drew and I started watching a fantastic drama called Mad Men. We recently started the second season and while watching one of the episodes last night I turned to Drew and remarked how odd it was that all…






2012 Questions

Almost all of us have made a New Year’s resolution at least once. This year I’m asking New Year’s questions instead: When and why did people first start making resolutions on New Year’s eve? What do lychee taste like? Does the Mayan calendar end on December 21 because the world is going to end or…
