Caption This Photo


Inspired by an offhand comment made at Calvin's Symposium on Worship, some friends of mine persuaded me to pose for this picture.

You may guess the phrase which prompted it, or make up your own. A few options to get you started:
  • Ron is Riding his Homiletical Hobby Horse
  • The world Meijer is my parish
  • The Word straight from the Horse's...
  • Penny for your Thoughts

Itinerant preaching ain't what it used to be.

Here is what Ron is saying: "see, this is why they make preachers take grammar. 'Caption' isn't actually a verb but if you go back and look at the original you'll see that a better translation is "make a caption for this picture." The emphasis is on 'make,' asking us, the reader, to actually participate in the community of caption makers."

Hi, welcome to Flagstar Bank. Would you like to learn about our low, low APR financing?

Nathan said...

Yeah, comps are over. So, back in the saddle.

Help! How do you turn this thing off?!

You know, before I was a poor Ph.D student, I could afford extravagances like this.

The dominant feature of our pre-sermon worship time is a significant chunk of music interspersed with words of welcome and perhaps a prayer or two. In the past months we’ve worked hard at intentionally selecting congregational songs that have cultural breadth, theological depth, and liturgical clarity. Still, the logistics of the service (including the architectural shape of our space) leave us with a default organizational ordo with which we are increasingly uncomfortable. It is an order that feels not blessedly simple but distressingly simplistic: songs (led by a group from the right hand side), followed by a sermon (preached by a professor from the left hand side).

It's one horsepower.

No, you hold down the button in front until [*flash*] ... hey, I wasn't ready! I said I wanted to pose!

Hi Ron!!! Great to run across you on the interweb!

I knew you way back when . . . as a sinner and a rock 'n' roll bassist. ;-D
