• Do not let Donald Trump’s dishonest attempts to sow doubt and discord about the integrity of the election stop you from voting. I’m dropping off my ballot today. Go vote!

  • Hey, Apple fans, help me out: Is there a best/worst time to buy Apple AirPods? I’ve got my eyes on the Pros, but is it better to wait until next year? Just curious.

  • Everyone should vote. Do it as early and as safely as you can. 🇺🇸

  • Recently came across my medical eval from spring 2017 before coming to Wheaton… I weighed 27lbs less. I had hair. I didn’t need glasses. I wasn’t on an antidepressant. Little did I know what “living the dream” of getting into a PhD program would cost me!

  • Semi-regular thought: “if I’m supposedly so smart, why am I getting this PhD, again?”

  • When does the big micro.blog update release?

  • I’m looking for an affordable green screen or other backdrop to use for Zoom and video recording. Any recommendations?

  • Chilly weather is back this coming week! I know that snow will be here before we know it, but I’m so happy for sweater weather. 🍁🍂🥰

  • A useful theological mental model: The theological map is not the divine territory.

  • Is it fair to describe Bill Barr’s view of the executive power of the presidency in the USA as something akin to a Führerprinzip (“leader principle”)?

  • Me: “Eva, look! I got a new book in the mail! What book do you think it is?” Eva (2yo): “BCP!” She was wrong (Bonhoeffer book), but still. #ProudAnglicanDad

  • If you’re looking for an easy-to-read introduction to Anglicanism, we (@AnglicanCompass) just published “Simply Anglican” by Winfield Bevins! You should check it out! www.amazon.com/Simply-An… #simplyanglican

  • Anyone else eat their ice cream way too quickly because the melting stresses them out? Just me? I can’t stand Frosties/milkshakes for this reason. It’s like you’re starting off halfway to failure.

  • Is Grudem still shilling for Trump? I’m curious just how much of his politics/ethics will show up in the 2nd Edition of his Systematic Theology.

  • Idea: We need fresh translations of Barth’s “Theological Existence To-day! (A Plea for Theological Freedom)” and Bonhoeffer’s “The Contemporization of New Testament Texts,” bound together in a single paperback with an introduction that contemporizes these texts for today.

  • If you’re learning or reviewing biblical Greek or Hebrew, you should really take a look at this Bible Vocab app!

  • “By your words you will be justified/condemned”

    The Bible has quite a lot to say about how we speak (and I would argue it should also apply to what we say online). Consider the following words from Jesus in Matthew 12: “I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter; for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the topic of words/speech in Scripture.

    How might our conversations, both in person and online, change if we took Jesus at his word?

  • More people should vote. And they should be able to do so safely and conveniently.

  • Not gonna lie, I’m probably going to play up the murder hornets and play down the Zoom meetings in my descriptions of 2020 to my grandkids someday.

  • Real talk: Anyone else with young children just feel exhausted and sad after Zoom church?

  • Who else out there is reading @esaumccaulley’s ”Reading While Black” right now? Just curious! 📚📚📚

  • Highly recommend @ayjay’s latest book, ”Breaking Bread with the Dead”! I just finished it last night. Read it to learn how to lovingly and critically engage with the past! I know he’s not talking about biblical exegesis, but it’s fascinating to consider the possible resonances.

  • Check out this new Daily Office app! It uses the 2019 Book of Common Prayer.

  • Yet another reason to get off Facebook.

    This suggests that the most prominent news sources on Facebook are significantly more biased than those found elsewhere on the web.


  • Hey internet: I’m trying to get better at book marketing. Any best practices and/or email templates out there for sending out Advance Reader Copies? Trying to make sure I word things the right way when I send people a PDF of a forthcoming book!
