This blog is the output of my frequent forgetfulness that we influence others far more through personal relationships in our lives than through our words. I want to remember Alan Jacobs’s social media principles, including that “Some conversations are more meaningful and effective in living rooms, or at dinner tables, than in the middle of Main Street.” But this is where I post sometimes to Main Street; pray for my discernment.
I don’t think of myself as good at research, and very few of my views are insights I logically came to on my own independent of others. But I strongly dislike echo chambers, and I hope if nothing else what comes through in this blog is a synthesis resulting from the fact that I spend time in a number of different subcultures that usually don’t talk to each other.
For more info on the intended ethos of this blog, see my first post.
