First Things First

Welcome to my new blog!

Yes, it may look a little “generic.”  When I considered what kind of theme I pictured in my head, it was a two column layout, with the emphasis on the wider left column.  Thankfully, WordPress has such a theme; it almost resembles a digital sheet of blank paper.

Some of the people who’ve gotten to know me the best think I should have some type of journal or blog.  I’ve thought for a few months about what I would post if I had a blog, or what topic(s) to feature.  I came up with the idea of: creation.

My intent isn’t really to be a stereotypical “creation vs evolution” writer.  In fact, I’d prefer not to insult or “attack” popular personalities who may disagree with the information I present.  I’m still in the early stages of figuring out how I’ll do that, because I may mention a few such people by name along the way.

At least at the beginning of my article series, I plan to create new posts every two weeks.  Why every two weeks?  The world is used to an instant streaming, microwave dinner, fast food pace of activity.  How are you supposed to stand out in that kind of culture?  Another reason may just be the speed at which I study and process information.  Often, when I’ve volunteered to lead a Bible study, I might start preparing two weeks in advance.  My goal is to make sure I have a chance to read all the material, and then seek out sermons or other commentary that help to explain certain passages.

There’s only one ground rule that I request.  I’m very intolerant towards profanity and personal attacks or verbal abuse.  Chances are, we don’t know each other, or we’re not close acquaintances.  How is it possible that you would be angry with me?  Are you sure you’re not comparing me to a caricature you’ve heard somewhere else, or misplacing your anger, which is actually burning towards someone else?

Another idea I have is to alternate between spiritual topics and some of my hobbies, or thoughts about pop culture (books I’m reading, movie reviews …).  In that case, I might write a new article each week, but on a different weekday.  In other words, there may be 4 to 5 days between a creation post and a hobby post, but probably longer than a week until the next creation post.

Thank you for your readership, and I hope to present some original ideas that may not have been presented to you up until now.
