isaac’s wedding

June 28th, 2006 by isaac · 16 Comments

Ok. So it looks like this blog is dead. No posts for a month. Jason and I have failed those four or five people out there who bother to read our ramblings. Forgive us, O faithful few. But I think we have some decent excuses. First of all, Jason and I both just graduated from […]

the agonies of Christ: more deaths in Baghdad

March 24th, 2006 by isaac · 1 Comment

“Christ will indeed be in agony unto the end of the world.” That the last line I read last night in bed before I turned out the lights. It’s how D.M. MacKinnon ends his essay “Order and Evil in the Gospel” (Borderlands of Theology, p.96). “Violence rages in Iraq; 58 killed.” That’s the headline I […]

cut off the king’s head!!… In the Foucaultian sense, of course.

March 23rd, 2006 by isaac · 4 Comments

So, when I was back home in Tucson visiting my folks, I was totally intrigued by the conversations. I mean, I never really paid too much attention to the way God and Country is the motto for those among these Christian circles. I guess that used to be me too. Maybe it’s silly to say […]

the groans of creation: johnny cash, jeffrey stout, and jacob taubes on the politics of nihilism

February 23rd, 2006 by isaac · 15 Comments

The man in black… Johnny Cash. I’m sure many saw that new film: Walk the Line. I loved it. What is striking about the filmakers is that they frame Cash’s story with Folsom Prison. At the beginning of the film, Johnny Cash is waiting in a back room listening to the prisoners stomp and clap […]

wandering church: U2 and hebrews

February 20th, 2006 by isaac · 13 Comments

Music has always been important to my friends and me. If nothing interesting was going on, we’d head to Zia Records and wander up and down the aisles of new and used CDs. Maybe someone would buy something, but not necessarily. It felt good just to look around and talk about music. Songs were part […]

notes for christmas travels

Lesson #1: If you connect in Newark, take a sleeping bag. When I found out my flight from Raleigh/Durham would be delayed an hour, I asked the nice woman at the Continental counter what I should do about my connection in Newark that evening. She said, There’s still a good chance that you might make […]

After three wonderful years with my girlfriend Katie, I finally asked her to marry me! And, thank God, she said Yes. So, things are looking up. I mean, I am pretty much a loser without her—I would probably spend my life blogging if she wasn’t around to show me that it’s a perfect day for […]

noah at murdoch: preaching blind

October 14th, 2005 by isaac · 2 Comments

At the end of this post, I reported that I have to preach at the Murdoch Center this Sunday. I am serving at the chapel this academic year for my M.Div field education requirment. I’ve been struggling to figure out how to preach to people with whom I have a hard time understanding. How do […]

Young Lakes Backpacking

October 12th, 2005 by Jason · 2 Comments

This past weekend I went backpacking with some guys from church up in Yosemite. We started with a hike up to Young Lakes in the high sierras and then came down to Glen Aulin, a beautiful canyon that wanders down along the Tuolmne meadow. You can see some pictures here.
