Why I Am Coming to NYC

Why I Am Coming to NYC

Each year it seems like such an undertaking: spending money on travel for myself that could have been used for a family vacation; enduring crowded flights and dreary layovers; trudging to and fro on subway lines and unfamiliar avenues, a stranger in a strange land – all to spend a few fleeting days at a […]

Breaking The Fourth Wall: The Mockingbird Preaching Seminar

Breaking The Fourth Wall: The Mockingbird Preaching Seminar

A few priceless transcriptions from the second talk of the preaching seminar that Paul Zahl conducted at the Fall 2010 Mini-Conference in Pensacola, FL. The first talk had to do with the message itself, while this one, entitled “Breaking the Fourth Wall” (also the title of seminar as a whole), dealt mainly with the means […]

With the upcoming Mockingbird Mini-Conference now less than six weeks away (!) we continue our series of posts to familiarize everyone with the conference theme and why we chose it – sort of a preview of what the talks will entail, and one that we hope will grab you (and convince you to register ASAP!).

Another Week Ends: Cyber Bullies, eBay, Glenn Beck, FUNdamentals, Madonna, TV roundup

Another Week Ends: Cyber Bullies, eBay, Glenn Beck, FUNdamentals, Madonna, TV roundup

1. A quick study in opposites: In an NPR story about the rise of cyber-bullying and public humiliation, “It’s Not the Web, It’s Us” sociologist C.J. Pascoe wisely states, ‘we shouldn’t place all the blame for [cyber-bully] actions on new technology. ‘I think the problem starts pre-technology, which is, what are the motivations we have […]

Displaced Persons in an Alien World

Displaced Persons in an Alien World

On Saturday afternoon as I walked out the Chantry doors of Saint George’s, the sky was grey, the air was a damp chill, and the cherry trees with their paper-parchment blossoms had somehow lost their luster. Indeed, the world seemed a very different place from the world I had left on the Thursday prior, as […]

Kanye West Meets the Left Hand of God

Kanye West Meets the Left Hand of God

I’m still reeling from Gil Kracke’s excellent breakout session at the recent Pensacola Mini-Conference, “Like A Rolling Stone: The Law of Inertia and Human Psychology.” If you haven’t listened to it, do yourself a favor. I can assure you that it will not disappoint! One of Gil’s primary illustrations of incurvatus in se – St. […]

Hello, Belly Button...

Hello, Belly Button…

It’s been two weeks since the Pensacola Mini-Conference, and Gil Kracke’s excellent break-out session is still very much on my mind. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, do yourself the favor. You won’t be disappointed! Gil started his thesis from a very old concept, called incurvatus in se, a term that some say originated with […]
