Got something for ya...

Hey, remember that secondary blog I started way back when, put in some decent posts, and then pretty much abandoned? Yeah? Well, now the abandonment is official (I'll leave it up unattended for posterity... for now).

Well, if you took the time to read the post on the other end of that link (did you? be honest) you may have noticed that I have started up a kind of multi-author youth ministry blog/ezine/journal thing. Here's the logo (linked):

The idea is simply this:

Absolutes ring hollow for your average Post-modern because our perception of truth is essentially relative (don't argue: I'm setting up a straw man--just go read the Blindmen & the Elephant). Truth, therefore, is better communicated as experience: tales from the journey and shared paths.

Open Source (ie: software that allows you to read the code and understand how it arrived at this point) is applicable to Faith (& philosophy) as revealing the "code" that brought us to where we are and plots out where we may be going. Get it? If not, read the blog and eventually it will make sense... I hope

(note: though 'open source' is 'free, as in speech,' it still requires dedication and understanding to examine/read it--in software that would be an understanding of programming languages--therefore, though it means things come out in the open, it still requires investment on the part of the observer/reader/interact-er)

For a fuller (read:"stream of consciousness") take on what is about, read the About Page.

Anyway, check it out. Spread the word. Add your say. And let me know if you'd like to post something (it's all Creative Commons so I have no issues with posts being on there and your own website at the same time). BTW, I will be asking some of you in particular in the near future to consider writing something... or even being a regular columnist if it turns into anything more than a casual experiment.
