Coming Soon (hopefully...maybe)

Ok, I hate having an inactive and lame blog. Not many posts. Not much serious content. Oh well, part of being a new parent I guess. Hopefully I'll get a chance to blog more soon. Here are a few things I am wanting to blog about:

1. I watched a great movie the other night. A documentary called Born Into Brothels. Really great. Bump it to the top of your queue. Hopefully I will be blogging about my reaction to the movie soon...

2. I read a good book last week called Leaving Church (mostly while bouncing Ivy in the bouncy seat - trying to get her to go to sleep...). It's written by Barbara Brown Taylor and is about her faith journey - from becoming an Anglican priest to her eventual decision to walk away from church leadership, and to some degree church altogether. The book provoked some good thought and is definitely worthy of discussion.

3. A quote I came across today:

"For Christians, the problem is not how to reconcile homosexuality with scriptural passages that condemn it, but how to reconcile the rejection and punishment of homosexuals with the love of Christ." - William Sloane Coffin

I hope you all are well. More is coming soon...

(what do you think of the latest "rearrangement" of the blog?)


gk said...

Loved 'Born Into Brothels.' Amazingly depressing.

Oh and I don't like the new format. I fear change.

Amy said...

I second GK on the new arrangement, only because you have made it EVEN MORE DIFFICULT to blog-surf. You're screwing up my rhythm, man!!

Mark said...

I love the Coffin quote. When will we take seriously the call of Christ to love, and get over our obsession with being right? Nowhere has this problem been more apparent than in the relationship between christians and the gay community.

Another Coffin quote I found: "The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love."

Adam said...

Alright, so it sounds like the new design is a keeper!

Thanks for the additional quote Mark. From wikipedia he seems like a very interesting guy.

NoVA Dad said...

Congratulations on fatherhood! As the father of two small daughters, I can tell you that it's one of the most challenging, exhausting, exhilarating, loving things you'll ever do -- and the memories that are made each day will be priceless.

I actually ran across your blog while doing a search for the comments of others who enjoy Barbara Brown Taylor. I read "Leaving Church" last year (and posted a lengthy review of it on my blog) and found it to be one of the best books I've ever read. I have several other books by her (and many others by Frederick Buechner, who you also might enjoy) on my pending list and hope to get to those soon.

If you're interested in actually hearing BBT speak, the Washington National Cathedral archives videos of the appearances made by major speakers, and she is included. If you go to, one of her appearances is first on the list; if you scroll down, you'll find a link to the tribute to Buechner where she also speaks.

Best of luck on fatherhood; you'll love it. If you don't mind, I'm going to link your blog to mine for repeat visits!

A Marie said...

I actually dislike the new set up, for two reasons. 1. I don't like that I can't see what your second to last post was, in case I missed the one before, but this is really secondary to the other reason which is...2. Where are the links for other blogs? I can't find them.

Adam said...

Another ringing endorsement!

The links pages are of now...sorry...

Mary said...

I don't mind the lack of links (Brooke still has hers, after all), but bear in mind that I ESPECIALLY LOVE the fact that your previous posts don't show up on the main page anymore. What a fantastic idea! I mean, who cares about having people actually keep up with your thoughts, right? Especially those people who have the unmitigated GALL not to spend hours blog-surfing each day to ensure that they stay current. Good job, buddy. Way to defend your blog from the unwashed heathen masses.

That said, I LOVE the Coffin quote, and the second quote that Mark posted. Over the past couple of years, I've been learning to believe that it's more important to be concretely loving than intellectually right. Any day. Any time. In any situation. (Well, situations of imminent personal danger perhaps excluded...mama always said, trust your instincts then, and RUN. But any other situation, yes.) Again and again, I realize that the most important thing I can do is learn how to love well, the way that I'm called to love. Again and again, I realize that if I'm serious about learning this, I don't really have time to worry about a whole lot else.

First paragraph sarcastic, second one anything but.

A Marie said...

Poor Adam! He's being ganged up on.

Adam said...

Good news and bad news.

The good news - everyone loves the new setup.

The bad news - if for some reason I wanted to change it back, I don't think I know how...

Adam said...

By the way, you can easily go down below the one post on the page and click "older posts" to get to the previous post, etc.

Is it that difficult?

Would this be better? Or would it make you hate me even more?

gk said...

No, it would not be better. Bring back the multiple posts per page.

Or I'll cancel my paid subscription to "If God is Love."

Adam said...

If these are my friends...

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
