New Year’s Note to Self


Dear Self,

Here are things you can’t control:

  • God
  • other people

Here is something you can control:

  • yourself

There’s more, but this should be enough to keep you occupied in 2012.





listen to what the Spirit says to my blog commenters: a vision
Is Christianity a Tribalistic Religion? Sort of looks that way.
the (or at least "a") problem with evangelical white churches
the challenge of teaching Bible to young Christians (or, true growth is painful)
  • Don Johnson

    Basic Boundaries teaching.

  • Jeremy

    Few words. Much truth.

  • Lise Porter

    “Finding it at the Dollar Tree.” Utterly touching.

  • Adam Gonnerman

    I find controlling myself to be a hit-or-miss proposition.

  • davey

    People can control themselves! Or maybe Christians can? Is that an empirical proposition? Ha! Ha!
