Random Thoughts #46


It’s Wednesday, time for random thoughts.

  1. Central Baptist has more musical and creative talent than a church our size should expect to have. I’m proud of these folks.
  2. My wife and I might do a month subscription to the Hallmark Channel, because 2020 needs more sappy cheese.
  3. I don’t understand the draw of the Evangelical Trump cult. Maybe that’s not entirely true. I mean, I’m a Philadelphia sports fan and our entire ethos is centered on being chippy and disrespected. But that’s for sports. The Trump Cult finds this appealing for their entire way of life.
  4. Vaccines are on the way. I hope waiting for them doesn’t feel the same way the month of December feels to kids who are waiting for Christmas to arrive.
  5. I have begun world building for a D&D campaign. I’m even going to attempt to make it an exploration of Christian Spirituality. The main quest has a great hook.
  6. Bump will be staying home all week, which is the right thing to do, but it makes my “productivity” scale slide way down.
  7. We set up a bunch of Homekit plugs in our house for our Christmas lights. Now I don’t have to walk around turning them off one by one by one. Though I need a couple more for the trees.
  8. One of our church musicians picked up a Zoom Camera to do some recordings for worship. I’m kinda jealous, but it’s been really cool seeing him explore the device, even if it’s frustrating that I can’t be hands on.
  9. CoVid-19 sucks.
  10. We had our first streaming-only worship this past Sunday. I hate having to do this, but we have a good list of folks who are willing to participate which is nice.
