Diamond mining – UDPATE

Hah! I almost posted last night to ask if you were going to plunk down the brilliancescope, ISee2, and Sarin info. Isn’t is fun being able to get all these specs on the lovely rock?

Congratulations to you both!

The Mystery Connector

As both Rob’s friend and a dentist, I think the best thing I can do here is leave this post entirely alone 🙂

Just call me Eric Liddell

Go Rob! I was just hanging out with some friends and we got to discussing how we all really dislike running — I’d much rather be on an eliptical and be kind to my joints, or play raquetball. But I am impressed to no end with the determination it takes to train for and run a race like this!

like cats and dogs: a taxonomy

Disturbingly, when I glanced at the title of this post, I thought it said “Cats and Dogs: a taxadermy”. I was really, really worried about what Rob had been getting up to with his DIY projects!

vain numbers

Gosh, I’m feeling really out of it now.  I need to stop e-mailing Rob and get back to increasing my own stats here!

Bright lights, big city.

That is a great story, and very well told, too!

I was in NYC/NJ over Valentine’s Day in 2004. We were there with a choir, which included my now wife, then girl-I-was-trying-to-date-who-refused-to-be-known-as-my-girlfriend. It snowed. A lot. As in “The governor has declared that New Jersey is closed today.” Illegal to drive, all airports closed, etc. Residents told us that NJ has about 10 snowplows to strategically deploy, and their basic snow removal plan is “Wait for June.” We were stuck on the East Coast an additional three days in the storm (good quality time with my wife, though). So I’ll just say you were lucky to make it out of NJ last weekend!

The hair club for men

Ha! Aren’t sisters fun?

I vote for A. I’m a little closer to E, myself, but that’s because I can get away with looking a little crazy as long as my dad is the senior doctor in the practice. When I’m on my own, I’m sure I’ll have to scale back and look more professional/conservative.

Snow Day!


Last spring while we were still buried in snow here in Michigan, you said you’d enjoy some of the white stuff, and I offered you as much as you wanted. Looks like you’ll be getting even more than me this year!

Here I raise my Ebenezer!

I can’t tell you how excited I was to read this post, especially since I met you when God seemed to you very much the heckler! What a lot can change in a year, huh? This was awesome to read, bro.

Insert Girlfriend Here

I’m still reading Gary Thomas’ excellent book _Sacred Marriage_. To paraphrase Thomas — being single promotes serving Christ; being married promotes becoming like Christ.

Obviously the two are not mutually exclusive. But Hojun4’s comment is exactly right. It is easier for the single believer to serve than for the married believer. Marriage, on the other hand, is fertile ground for confession, reconciliation, and sanctification in a way that singleness is not.

It strikes me, too, that we have all experienced singleness. I wonder why it’s so difficult for us married folks collectively to remember those days and stand in solidarity with our single friends in their longings and frustrations. It’s almost beyond comprehension that we push them to the outside of our social circles and marginalize them in our churches. We were all there once ourselves.

Why sure, I’d be happy to supply the line of reasoning that led to the Moritorium! We were talking about a couple of things.

One was what John Eldredge calls “taking the question to Eve” — the male tendency to answer the question “Am I a real man?” by checking to see whether or not he has a girlfriend/wife.

The other was your tendency to shy away from social situations — like that single’s dance at church — especially when there’s an implicit “hooking up” mentality and the fear of rejection that goes along with it. We agreed that it would be ridiculous to avoid women entirely as a remedy to idolizing them.

And when you asked, in light of that, how you should treat single’s functions, I suggested going to them with your only goal being to meet as many people as possible for a couple of months.

Colorado pic update!

Sweet pics!

the Man & the Imposter

That darn imposter! Brennan Manning had it so right when he said that the imposter is born while we are still children, as a defense against pain.

A Revelation


You said you didn’t get your answer in the lobby of the church, but I’m sure I remember you telling me that afternoon that you were going to be praying more for peace than for the decision itself. I believe God gave you exactly what you asked for, and it was exactly what you needed at the time.

It’s really exciting to see the Colorado adventure that you’re on, but even cooler to see the spiritual journey that supports it!

Jesus prayer

Yup. Says it all, really. Kyrie eleison.

Sensuality is not antithetical to faith

A very interesting article! I’ll need to think it through a bit more…

Lyric of the day

Gosh, no. It’s not turtles ALL the way down! As every fan of outstanding British author Terry Pratchett knows from his Discworld series, the world is sitting on the backs of 4 galactic sized elephants. THEN comes the turtle on whose shell they ride, and the turtle is swimming through outer space, so there’s only one. Researchers are still hard at work trying to determine the turtle’s sex, however.

Hmm… Reminds me of something one of my favorite authors, John Eldredge, wrote. It was to the effect that however small and insignificant we feel in this world, God tells us that this world is an active battlefield. If we desert our place in the ranks, there is NO ONE who can fill the hole we leave behind. No one else shares all of our relationships and situations that let us impact this world on Christ’s behalf. I am here for such a time as this. It’s kind of a sobering thought.

Coffee Carnage

That is just … you know, there really aren’t words to do justice to this, Rob. The closest I could come would have to be “Waaaaay too much time on your hands!” 🙂

Of long goodbyes and short lives

Rob, I know the voice of that isolated alter ego from my own life, too. Let me assure you that isolation is an addictive drug as well — I found myself wearing the pain of my lonliness like a shield, using it to keep back the friends who were trying to break through to love and care for me. Consider that the whole history of salvation is of God calling out again and again for a wayward people to return to Him. He, more than anyone else, has certainly known the pain of broken relationships, and is more qualified than any other to meet us in our hurt and carry us through. God Himself will restore your spirit, and He will use the love of friends around you to encourage you along the way.

Numbers don’t lie

Ok, that statistcal evidence was outstanding! Very, very funny. I had no idea how improbable marriage really was…
