Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs. From playing Number Munchers on my third grade classroom’s Apple computer, to filing stories and photographs from my iPhone yesterday, your products changed my life — and the world.
Jobs, 56, wasn’t much associated with faith – unless you count coverage of his company’s latest “Jesus Phone” – but obituaries are noting that he was a Buddhist convert, with roots in the Lutheran church. Incidentally, his biological father was Muslim, but they were estranged.)
Here are some faith-related links:

- –Steve Jobs, Apple founder, dies (GetReligion)
- –The Spiritual Side of Steve Jobs (CNN Belief Blog)
- –Steve Jobs, RIP (Patheos)
- –Mideast Tweets Gratitude for Steve Jobs, Credits Him for Arab Spring (Toronto Star)
- –Steve Jobs: Change We Learned to Believe In (Chabad.org)
And, of course the Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest at the funeral. Yawn. Then again, maybe that’s their interpretation of Jobs’ mantra: “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
