Currently reading: Presence in the Modern World by Jacques Ellul 📚 — Two chapters in and I’m already wondering why this wasn’t required reading in seminary.
Wow. It’s going to be a very interesting week for orthodox Anglicans. Thankful for the strong witness of GAFCON & GSFA. — Kigali Commitment
Closest I’ve ever cut it, but… taxes ✅
Very interesting conversation on male psychology. — What the World of Psychology Gets Wrong About Men
Almighty God, who through thine only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death, and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may, by thy life-giving Spirit, be delivered from sin and raised from death; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
I knew it was coming, but, without NetNewsWire access, following local government and orgs has become a lot more annoying.
You don’t realize it until you’re on a bike, but cars are loud and smelly.
I love the work Equip does, but I gotta say my initial reaction is to push back against Christian use of “preferred pronouns.” — On Labels, Pronouns, & Names
Finished reading: Of Boys and Men by Richard Reeves 📚— A good, factual assessment of the issues facing boys and men. I’m less convinced of his solutions. Especially his attempt at redefining fatherhood.
37 incredibly fun miles. 🚲
Me and my bike buddy on our way yesterday to watch Nashville cream Montreal. ⚽️ 🚲
The little girl that made me a daddy turns seven today. Hard to believe! I love her so much and can’t imagine life without her.
Finished reading: On Getting Out of Bed by Alan Noble 📚 — An eye-opening account of what mental illness is like and a great testimony to the goodness of God’s creation.

Y’all, seriously. eBikes are awesome. I’ve been a greenway cyclist for ages, but have been hesitant to do city chores because I’m slow off the line and crawl up hills. (I’ve got arthritis.) eBike makes that all go away. The entire city is flat and I can gently throttle off the line before I start peddling. Love it! Just road with my daughter to pick up some groceries and had a blast. 🚴♂️🚲
I am going to be a mayor who delivers not shiny objects and toys for tourists, but rather services and excellence for the people who live here.
No power. No problem. ⚡️🍷
I’m hopeful this pushes big players to the open web. I still have to keep up (via RSS) with the bird to track local government and services accounts. — Paul Haddad: “Have heard the same thing…
The missing bit here is that the deal with MLS gives season ticket holders it for free. This is huge. I can watch NSC play all the home games and don’t have to stress about not having cable when we play away. Amazing! — MLS opening weekend on Apple TV points to an expensive future for sports streaming - The Verge
A big infrastructure need I see in Nashville is a safe, low-stress North to South and East to West route through downtown. Crossing four-lane roads full of tourists in SUVs is not great. — Give bikes a few dedicated crossing and a button to press to give us some dedicated time to cross. Low investment, huge impact.
I had an amazing time cycling to the game with my little bud. E-bikes change the game. They flatten the city. It was like cycling in Amsterdam, except I was still in beautiful Nashville, Tennessee. — The technology is here. Let’s build the infrastructure to support it. Every two-lane road in Nashville with a speed limit under forty should lose a lane to make room for bikes and pedestrians.
Dear Ticketmaster, What is this hot garbage? I am not going to a concert!
First Nashville SC game of the season. So ready to be back! And, I get to ride my new bike there, too. ⚽️ 🚴 🏰
