Construction... probably the scariest word I've used around here the last year or so. That said, "CONSTRUCTION!!!" Daniel-san is once again setting me up with wordpress, so that both Mac snobs and low-fi PC cavemen can navigate the blog and see the same thing. The cavemen usually don't complain too much, but every once in awhile I logon to see a threatening cave painting, and I'm ready to relinquish my fidelity to web-based publishing. Blogger keeps getting better, but as long as Dan keeps his server up and I can wrap my "plug n play" mind around FTP, this should be a good thing.
**Lesson #52: Continue to write while you work--you never know when you're going to run into a bunch of dead ends and leave your blog hanging for months on end--and then the cavemen take over. Not that I have ANY experience with that sort of thing. I'm just saying. You can imagine what that would be like.
So life continues. I'm a little punchy running on 3 hours of sleep, but I'm still coming off of the high of a great weekend. Spent Friday and Saturday until about midnight with my family up in Santa Maria. Friday night my baby sister and I sat out on the porch and talked until about 3am. Definitely a highlight of the trip. As was feeling my other sister's tummy kick. So beautiful. The family seems well. Still navigating a lot of collateral damage from the last 6 months of life, but they are beautiful and full of love. And my heart was full when I left.
Saw Star Wars III on Saturday with Regina. And I was pleasantly surprised. I expected a total bomb from some of the reviews I've been given, and although the kid from "Life as a House" really can't act his way out of a cardboard box, they did a great job with the flic. And it answers all the questions about the original trilogy that I never thoughts to ask. It was fun. A solid 7 out of 10--which is about 5.8 higher than I gave either of the other prequels.
Sunday was good--still wrestling through all of that. I'll be missing Nicole. I do already. You're loved and thought of--wherever you are girl.
Good Morning Blogdom.

It's about connection for me.
I liked what you said and that is the reason I was able to get an understanding of Jesus in college. The small group of christians reaching out enabled me to then go and learn about the bible from the different venues available. But it was the people who I read first looking at how they lived and then becoming hungry to know their God. If the first didnt happen I would have just kept away from it all.
It is also the reason I have quit going to some " church service " somewhere, when I felt all they really seem to want is a cardboard cutout with no messiness or connection even posible " smile everyone on cue " ok now " applaud, sing, stand ok a few more minutes till it's over, now go and have a donut for a 5 min. fellowship time" etc , have the mechanical ritual over and put away like a 30 minute sitcom.

Man Jared, it's so good to have you back.

And thanks for the link to Justin's blog... what a great read that was.

yes, at the b there are many venues and platforms to connect and serve. Having those options whereby you dont have to be perfect to serve or connect puts the Responsibility on the individual, to allow them to move at their pace of depth of involvement. Where they and God are at, really.

Hey buddy, great to see your site up and running, and you thinking out loud again. My site ( was "tagged" about influential books and current reads I'm into, so I hoped to hear what you've been into lately so I tagged you. Stop over and see the questions. If you don't want to respond it's cool, but know that I'm glad you're back and hope to have more great discussion with you.
Your friend in West Virginia.
