Mail systems, and avoiding the news.

I have an ambivelent relationship with Google, based to a large extent on mistrust. Some of their tools are useful, and many people still use blogger. I have used Youtube to find music for the blog — I don’t for listening. But they make their money out of advertisements, and that is a problem. I […]

We got to church today for a bit of a storming sermon. About what we come to church for: to meet our needs or to serve others. At the end of the service the alter call went something like this. “I was one of those guys he’s talking about. I was in year 12 and […]

Sunday Sonnet.

We may not be in Lent, yet, but Hopkins found that the season of psychological torment did not follow the churchly calendar. He calls despair comforting. To give up. To let the disciplines of your commitment fall apart. Instead he takes up his cross, splinters in his shoulder, and marches on. Carrion Comfort Not, I’ll […]

The law of Moses was a law of life, and this is now despised, because many of our elite hate life and hate our species and our nations and our tribes.

There are things we are commanded to despise. To Hate. To have nothing to do with. We have a shorthand for such things: we call them the world. Anything that is of the world we should not love. We should be prepared to just let it go, leave it. Our possessions, our jobs, our status: […]

This is an age of antinominalism, where the ethics of Satanism[1] is seen as right, proper and tolerant, and woe betide those who talk about the joy of discipline, regularity, routine.

Thursday Reformed

Last night, after putting to bed today’s lectionary — Kea and I began to discuss how many see God having created them broken, and are angry with God because of their own doing. They would prefer the blind watchmaker of evolution and the nihilism of the woke to the thought that there is a loving […]
