I’m Jonathan, and this is my little house on the Internet. Come on in and make yourself comfortable.

First blog posts are a sort of genre of their own — a dreadfully dull genre, I’m afraid — wherein I introduce myself and state all of my plans and goals for the blog, before I (a) utterly neglect the blog, or (b) take it in a completely different direction.

If you’re reading this, I assume you probably already know me in real life; I’m not sure why else you would be here. But in case you don’t, here’s what you’ll need to know to make sense of this: I’m a Christian (Presbyterian, to be specific, and PC(USA) to be even more specific), and I’m gay.

Oh, and I was on Jeopardy! once. But that was a long time ago.

I expect that this blog will be some combination of:

  • Thoughts in response to sermons I hear. Rebuttals, perhaps, or variations on a theme, or the sermon I would have preached had I been given the same text. If that’s what you’re looking for, look for the tag “sermon thoughts
  • Other thoughts on faith, or rebuttals to other things I’ve heard Christians say.
  • Thoughts about faith and sexuality.
  • And I really ought to put back my description of my experience on Jeopardy! I had it posted on the old version of this site, but took it down when I migrated to blog format. I’ve been meaning to repost it, but haven’t gotten around to it. Please remind me, if I haven’t done it in the next month or two, would you? Thanks.

If you need to get a hold of me, my email address is [my first initial] + [my last name] at [the domain name of this blog, minus the www].

Is that everything? All right, let’s begin then.

One thought on “Introduction”

  1. I’m looking forward to your thoughts in blog format, as I often enjoy your thoughts in person and on that social networking site who shall not be named. In case you’re in need of yet another blog to follow, with far few worthy and profound thoughts, here’s the link to mine:

    See you round the blogosphere.
