Underneath the skin there’s a human
Buried deep within there’s a human
And despite everything I’m still human
I’m still convinced that I can reclaim 2013 as The Year of the Bicep. But after giving it up for Lent (in hindsight) and perpetually stalling its restart, I’m realizing that this year is really The Year of the Podcast.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Not the podcast thing, but the “plan on doing one thing and end up doing another” thing. A few years ago I embarked on a year I was calling “Live Write,” a year where I would write my ass off, putting more words on a page than ever before. But then something else happened: I bought a DSLR and fell in love with seeing the world through a 50mm lens. And so my year of “Live Write” became a year of “Say Cheese!”
But I think I’m ok with this. It’s not that I’m failing at my goals but just realizing what my goals should have been. (And I have done more pushups this year than any other. Where’s the President’s Physical Fitness Award when you need it?) And this year’s hindsight goals (is it still considered hindsight if you realize it in April?) is The Year of the Podcast.
So check back tomorrow for the first episode of my new daily podcast!
This week at the FourFiveSix Preteen Ministry Conference I led a camp fire talent show (which we moved inside due to the weather). Along with hosting I offered a talent of my own: leading camp fire songs. Special thanks to Eric, Eric, and Dean from Spring Hill for making me feel like a camp song pro!
This past weekend at Subverting the Norm I had the opportunity to meet John Caputo (he actually sat in on one of the papers I presented). I first encountered Jack’s work in his book Deconstruction in a Nutshell, a book I read for a class on postmodernism nearly a decade ago at Cornerstone University.
After hearing Jack and others talk about Radical Theology this past weekend I wanted to page through my copy of this book and see what initially struck me about deconstruction so many years ago. But before I could even make it into the book I found myself enjoying the alterations I made to the cover of the book.
