Why is Spain different from California? —> Catholic Christianity, Community, Monarchy, etc.

Woot! Going to the LifeCycle Conference at St. James MBC tomorrow. Excited to see where my ministry and the Church can intersect with those in and leaving our jail system.

I haven’t really advertised this much, but I do consulting on the side. I’m especially interested in helping non-profits, churches, and small businesses. — Arnold Technology Consulting

Anyone out there deploying Confluent’s Kafka platform to Docker Swarm?

My new fancy summer coffee creation is 💯! 🥛+❄️+☕️ == 😋

The Collect for Sabbath Rest is a great reminder. So often I seek to pack my Saturdays too full. Today I’ll instead put “away all earthly anxieties” and place my focus on resting with and enjoying my family so, together, will be “prepared for the service of [God’s] sanctuary.”

A very good question indeed.

Why are we taxing bus riders to pay rich people to buy McMansions and luxury electric SUVs?

FaceTime counts as social media?!? Apple needs to work on Screen Time. A 30-minute Video Chat with Granny shouldn’t count against my social media time!

I love Screen Time in iOS 12, but there really needs to be a way to exclude Messages from the social media category.

2600 is, by far, the best tech publication I have ever read. 🖥 🤓

At IKEA in Atlanta. I don’t even want to know the story behind this sign!

Lee Greenwood’s got some unexpected soul in “Ain’t No Trick” 🎶


These DNC debates are awful. We need blue labor or some sort of Christian social democratic party.

I got a TRS-80 Model 100 off Craigslist a while back. Pretty fun little computer. Writing BASIC takes me back to the fourth grade for sure!

I love the ‘94 Book of Occasional Services on exorcism. Basically, “Dude, ask yo’ bishop. This is some real stuff!”

I bought “Against Calvinism” six years ago before seminary and Anglicanism. Three chapters in, it’s amazing how Protestant it all sounds to me. Reformed Catholic English “Arminianism” of Bishop L. Andrewes is a much better place for me.

Baptist must necessarily reject the validity of Calvin, Luther, Augustine, and many other immanent theologians’ baptism. Until Baptist theologians find a mediating view that affirms the validity of Catholic baptism without rejecting credo baptism there is no way forward.

Chapter 2 of Olson’s “Against Calvinism” struggles at times with why Calvinist Baptist are excluded from the “Reformed” label. I think it’s clear. The Baptist rejection of Catholic baptism is the stumbling block.
