Networking folk: Would you be concerned with a topography that went router -> switch -> switch -> computer or router -> switch -> access point? 🖥️ 🤓
I’m so over this crap! I just want to take my kids to a soccer game and have a good time. MLS needs to drop the social and political theme nights. I just want to watch a game! ⚽️

Currently reading: Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis 📚— Very different than I expected. Suspenseful and well-written. Half way through and it’s hard to put down.
A very exciting milestone towards launching the mission church I’m leading in East Nashville. — We have found a place to meet!

Something about this ad bar seems very dystopian to me. — This free TV comes with two screens - The Verge
“This way of the church in the world is, to human sight, folly, utopia, ineffectiveness, and we are seized by discouragement when we see what there really is to do in this real world. We could let everything go “if we were not sure that we would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” But we have seen this goodness. It has made itself manifest, and on this foundation we can go and face the powers of the world, in our absurd powerlessness, because “in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him who loved us. For I have the assurance that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor dominations, nor things present, nor the things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate us from the love of God, manifested in Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Rom 8: 37–39).” – Presence in the Modern World: A New Translation von Jacques Ellul a.co/eh2Pyb1
I didn’t expect a book written by a Frenchman to make me want to yell “hallelujah” at the end of a book, but boy did Jacques do it. Great read!

Buc-Ee’s is an interesting thing. On one hand, it’s everything wrong with American excess. On the other hand, they might be the best situated thing in the market to support automotive electrification. Switch the millions of pumps for chargers and they’re good. Odd thought.
We watched The Long, Long Trailer last night. So much truth in that movie! I was stressing for the husband having to drive that blasted trailer everywhere! 🎥
Longer review coming when I get a bit, but my first week with the BOOX Nova Air 2 has been great. It’s nice putting the phone away after work each day and only having pure reading as an option.
Finished reading: Summer Knight by Jim Butcher 📚
I’m trying to lessen the tech distractions in my life and better focus on what’s important. A Nova Air 2 arrives today. My intent is to put the phone away after work and only have serious reading material (books, RSS, and Pocket) available on a distraction-free device.
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.
