2 Chronicles 21:20 is probably the harshest summary of a persons life that I have ever read.

Thanks to the Lego Batman Movie, I get to occasionally hear my 6-year-old son singing (I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight and it’s even more hilarious than I ever thought it could be.

I’m going through one of those phases where I try to make all of my stuff platform agnostic-ish. It’s not that I’m unhappy with having all of my stuff be Apple specific, I’m just feeling like it may be time for a change and so much of how I do things has been built around this idea that I want to be able to also record and produce music on my devices in spite of the fact that I don’t really have the time or desire to do that anymore.

I’m even considering trying a Chromebook in 2019…

One interesting part of the experience of trying to do ministry in the UK is finding out just how different it is from what my brothers and sisters back in America are dealing with.

This nativity play just got kind of intense. I haven’t been behind a set up like this in a long time.

Britain really needs to rethink this colour scheme for weather warnings.

Sewing together 14 metres of fabric today. Pursuing ministry for 15 years didn’t prepare me for this.

6 hours, 4 drafts, 1 cup of coffee, 1 cup of tea and my final assignment for this counselling module is complete!

I’ve only baked a couple of loaves of bread since we’ve been in 🇬🇧. Hopefully this changes that trend a bit.

Right now the wind is going at 52 mph. Guess we’re definitely staying inside today.

Was in another part of Liverpool today.

It’s a study day again, but this headache is threatening to send me back home and straight to bed.

Knowing is not a static achievement - David Powlison

The dedication that goes into crafting a scene like this is beyond me.

Today, I learned that having a good umbrella doesn’t mean your trouser pockets won’t get soaked through. Thankfully, my phone and wallet and everything were ok.

that feeling when you decide to just let a word count shrink

My word count has gone way down over the last couple of days. I have a feeling this project is going to be a slow-going one where I just try and focus on writing a good story rather than meeting a word count. The most important aspect of it for me right now is that I keep writing it because it’s a project that is completely unrelated to any of the work that I’m currently doing in ministry and in my studies.

I shouldn’t be scrolling through my feed here because I should really be writing. I’ve only managed to write around 300 words or so and I’m already flagging.

Hitting the streets to hang posters for Trinity’s upcoming Nativity. Enjoying the sun after a long, grey week.

I missed NaNoWriMo but that’s not stopping me from trying to make it happen in December since I’ll be between counselling courses. Wrote just about 2000 words today!

Channeling my inner-Doc&Devo today with a couple 602s, Golden Bears, a regular Blackwing and a Staedtler Noris which seems to be the cultural equivalent of the Dixon Ticonderoga over here.

Today, my office is the nearest Costa Coffee while I try and get this last paper revised, rewritten and submitted. Going to be a long one.

I found this article on reading the Bible to kids really helpful and convicting.

Now that it’s basically December, one of my favourite Christmas albums gets to keep me company while designing more flyers for more Christmas events at the church.

Lesson learned today: cold, rainy days in the awkward time between autumn and winter are definitely not the kind of days where it’s a good idea to go out doing door-to-door ministry. 🌧💨❄️
