O Me of Little Faith

O Me of Little Faith

Back from Backpacking

posted by Jason Boyett

This will be a short posting week here at ye olde blog. I spent last weekend backpacking with friends in Colorado and will spend the next weekend with the family at Sea World and Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. These days in between are dedicated to getting everything done in a really short amount of time.

In the meantime, you can read a daily recap of my backpacking trip at my family blog. You won’t know anyone involved, and it’s kinda gross how I’m wearing the same clothing in every photo taken over a four-day period, but there are some pretty pictures to look at. And it will make you long for a wilderness experience of your own. So enjoy: Day One. Day Two. Day Three. Day Four.

I spent four days living off only 25 pounds of stuff, carried in a little bag that fit on my back. There are some lessons in simplicity to be learned in that.

Also, thanks for the feedback on the video blog from Monday. I’m thinking of some more stuff to do for those, so maybe it’ll be a weekly occurrence. A raisin, if you will, to spice up the oatmeal.

Not that it’s the best marketing idea to refer to one’s blog as “oatmeal.” Unless, of course, you like oatmeal. Which I do.

Have a great week, and I’ll see you on Monday.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process. Today I return the favor -- sort of -- via an interview at his blog, Introverted Church. We talk about how my introverted personality has impacted my faith and doubt, and how the extrov

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou
