Over in the blogroll I’ve added a couple links to blogs I’ve been quite enjoying. It’s a pretty cool thing about the internet– the diversity of world views, locations, and ages that can come together.
Obsessed with reality, over in the blog roll, is written by a college student who lives in Israel. He often blogs about that nation, his atheistic world view, and the experience in Deaf Culture as a sign language interpreter and child of deaf adults. Somehow, these differences are interesting and not barriers to communication as he is both articulate and observes respectful practices in debate.
I would have thought that this blog and mine exist on a 1 dismentional spectrum, that they are basically opposites. But the other new link on my blogroll, the cost of discipleship, indicates that in fact there’s more of a triangle, because my blog, obsessed with reality, and this one are all quite opposite each other.
The cost of discipleship is written by a gentleman who lives in the far corner of the U.S. from me, and more importantly, who worships Jesus from within the Orthodox tradition. His own insights are quite thought provoking, but his blog is also chock-full (chalk-full?) of really compelling quotes from Christian figures that are easy to overlook, forget about, or underestimate.
So go check those two links out on the blog roll. If you read a couple entries on each of these blogs, then read something on mine, and if you’re head doesn’t explode after reading, you deserve a brownie button or something.
