My Ordination

I am about to hit one of the first really big milestones of my new career as an author and pastor, that of being ordained, or as I like to say, ‘Revved.’ 

The double meaning of the term ‘rev’ is that it not only means ‘Reverend,’ but in the software industry (my current career), it means to “revision” something, or to promote it “up” a revision or version – so let’s just say I’m going to from Pastor 0.9 to Pastor 1.0.


I have enough books to read for now, but I would really love to have the Logos Bible Software package, which has all sorts of study and cross reference material.  I’ve created the Paypal donation widget above for those who would like to give.  I tried to make it anonymous so I couldn’t see how much each person gave, but that was not possible.  However, I promise to avoid looking at the actual donation data.  Any gift is deeply appreciated, and you don’t have to give at all if you don’t want, you can still come to the celebration.


For those attending my ordination, here’s the details.  It will be part of the Harvest Community Church 20th Anniversary Celebration.  Please attend if you would like to, there will be a catered lunch (free food!), and a reception at my home afterward for my friends and family. 

Date:        Sunday, April 18, 2010

Time:       11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

My head cold makes me feel – funny

This is me – well, warped by some of the cool transformations possible with PicSay Pro, an app for the Android phones.  This is one of the few paid apps that I must have for my Motorola Droid (along with BeyondPod, Twidroid Pro, and Open Home – you can see all my recommended apps at Guide: Best Android Apps for the Motorola Droid).

But this pic captures how I have been feeling with a scratchy throat for over a week now – you know, the kind where it feels like a microscopic elf is picking at one spot in your throat with a tiny, sharp pick axe?  Argh.  I haven’t slept well for a week.
