I have a thousand things I want to talk about…consequentially I can’t talk about any of them…I believe this is what Pete Rollins calls hypernimity…the abundance of content leads to an inability to speak of it.
1) the difference between organic and organic
2) looking at the (un)knowability of God pictured in the Exodus story.seen trough the name of Moses
3) the parable of the prodigal God
4) how true community seems like it is more or less experienced in the process and the journey rather than sought after or arrived at
5) the grudge match between the uber minute hair split of “presumptuousness” and “certainty”
6) defining that “fundamentalism” is NOT exactly interchangeable with the word “conservative”…just with being “narrow minded”
7) why television is a bigger glut than it’s ever been and why that’s ok with people–why do we keep on watching? And how a Spanish Romantic Game Show is the best hour on TV from 7-8pm PST, M-Th.
8) faith without doubt is dead
9) why I increasingly feel out of sync with churchianity–and what to do about that.
10) The pretentiousness of music snobs like myself–not being able to craft a better pop song and calling that art
11) The CHOICE of “the dark night of the soul” versus the EXPERIENCE of it
12) Why I’m cranky these days
13) Sufism and spinning
14) Enneagram and why every person serious about a personal journey needs to question their motives and acknowledge their shadow
15) the fact that empiricists (Christian, secular, and otherwise) sound idiotic at best.
17) being hearers of the word and doers
18) how I sold my soul for 2.50 in 9th grade to a guy who later went to Fuller (it really explains so much in retrospect)
19) why having an agenda is a guilty pleasure–no one admits they’ve got one but we all do…and maybe we should…
20) …there’s a lot more where these came from…
