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.
