Back With A Vengeance
Blogging, WtTS Stuff

Reading: A Christian Directory, one of two works by Richard Baxter that we should be allowed to read (the other being The Reformed Pastor)
Listening: Pedro's Achille's Heel
Enjoying: Cream Soda and Keebler cookies

As we return to our regular blogger haunts, all sorts of new things are under foot. For one thing, it is good to be back, as we have sorely missed blogging. Nonetheless, it was good that we take the sabbatical, as much was accomplished in our time off.

Confession - Ok, this is even later than it should have been posted. Originally, this was supposed to go up in time for the Ides of March - hence the doom that surrounds the resurrection of this blog - but there have been... ah, ahem... technical difficulties. Thanks for your patience.

The first thing is that the "categories" section to the right may actually be working. We're still overhauling it, so continue to lend us your patience. It may be awhile before old posts show up under their appropriate comments, but we have opted for the "slow but sure" as opposed to "get-it-done-in-two-all-nighters." Any problems using it? Feel free to let us know either in the comments or by email. (For those of you wondering, you can click on the email tag on the right under "Banners.")

That brings up the second new tidbit, a new category: Exegetical. Some of the things that will hopefully be posted in the near future (D.V.) concerns exegesis in Romans 2:1 - 5 and 8:1 - 4. They will, of course, be handled separately. Here's 8:1 - 4 to whet your appetite and stir your affections for our life-giving, condemnation-pardoning, sin-bearing Lord:

1There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

As the categories improve, so shall the multimedia. While our hopes for ThuderCast Reformed Podcast have dwindled, the program will continue, albeit in a different form. Wise advice and counsel were given to appropriate podcasts as simply posting in a different venue; using a different media. So occasionally you will see podcasts in the main stream of posting, as well as special issues. Again, check the banner to the right for an RSS/XML feed.

Along with this comes new vidcasts. I've already posted a few, and more are coming. We hope you immensely enjoy these. Due to our insidious personality, no doubt many of them will contain far too many inside jokes. For those on the outside, our apologies and hope you stay with long enough for yourself to get sharked in one of these vidcasts. The banner to the right will take you to them and their feed.

On a similar note, additions to the Thunder Speak Photo Album have been complete. Check out any new photogs.

Thanks for abiding our absence. Does the air smell fresher to anyone else too?

(P.S. Oh, go check out Pedro [even as they morph] too. Pedro the Lion.)

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
