The First 100 Days: An Idea

posted by Jason Boyett

So yesterday was the big “First 100 Days” milestone in President Obama’s administration. I’ve always found this to be a curious way to mark the passage of time. One hundred is a good, round number — when you’re doing math […]

Contest Winner: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

Some of you are more disturbed than I am. Lots of good entries in yesterday’s not-very-inspiring “inspirational kitten” caption contest. Lots of entries that made me throw up in my mouth a little. Of the good entries, I couldn’t pick […]

Caption Contest: The Inspirational Kitten

posted by Jason Boyett

I was making fun of inspirational Twitter posts earlier today and @shueytexas reminded me of the clichéd “Hang in There” virtues of the kitten-in-a-tree poster. Which I may or may not have hung in my room as an 11 year-old. […]

Ten More Confessions

posted by Jason Boyett

Sometimes you just need to get things off your chest. I’ve done it before, and now I’m doing it again. Don’t hate me, blog readers. Admire me for my transparency: 1. I sleep with a body pillow. If you ask […]

Recycled Post: Earth Day

posted by Jason Boyett

Today is Earth Day, which means it’s as good a day as any to recycle a post. Last year’s post on Earth Day was one of my favorites of the year, and I’m gonna reduce/reuse/recycle by posting it again. The […]

This Week in Ninja Larceny…

posted by Jason Boyett

Imagine my glee when, finally, I got a hit on my Google alert for ninja + sword + “dry cleaner” + robbery. After all this time! Here’s the story, from the Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Massachusetts: ———— WEYMOUTH — A […]

Dear God, I Have a Question

posted by Jason Boyett

I’ve been thinking lately about the questions I have for God, the kinds of things I would ask if I could get an answer, and which I do ask from time to time. They’re the kinds of questions that aren’t […]

Diff’rent Strokes Just Got Disturbing

posted by Jason Boyett

If you’re like me, you probably never think about how important music is to setting the tone of the images you’re seeing on TV or in a movie. But the background music makes all the difference. Want proof? Check out […]

The Church and The Poor

posted by Jason Boyett

Thanks to everyone who commented on yesterday’s “ideas needed” post. I’ve passed your suggestions along to the church guy and they are much appreciated…and might eventually be implemented. Who knows? Since you were so helpful yesterday, I’d like to pose […]

Ideas Needed: What Could You Do with $20K/Month?

posted by Jason Boyett

A friend of mine posed me a theoretical question about his church, and I think it’s a great one to put some creativity to. This modest-sized church has been making a regular debt payment around $20,000 every month for a […]

How I Use Social Media

posted by Jason Boyett

The year 2009, it seems, has already been declared the Year of Twitter., where about half the people you run into claim to be something called a “Social Media Expert.” Everyone’s on Facebook, too, other than my wife. This fact […]

Afterlife Preview: 11 Sensible Explanations for Ghosts

posted by Jason Boyett

It’s been a few months since the last sneak peak at Pocket Guide to the Afterlife, which releases in August from Jossey-Bass (along with Pocket Guide to Sainthood and a repackaged Pocket Guide to the Bible). My favorite chapter in […]

More Funny Words and Suggested Usage

posted by Jason Boyett

I enjoyed this last time around, so I’m doing it again. Here are a few random words from The 100 Funniest Words in English, by Robert Beard, with definitions and my own personal usage suggestions. Your goal for today is […]

Ask the Rabbi: Birkat Ha-Chamah

posted by Jason Boyett

Today is a unique day in Judaism. A lot of you may not be aware of it — I wasn’t until Delaware Ken put it on my radar (he’s good at that sort of thing) — but today is an […]

Bart Ehrman and Jesus, Interrupted

posted by Jason Boyett

Bart Ehrman is the kind of person who fascinates me. Evangelical Christians love conversion stories, but his story goes in the wrong direction. He was raised Episcopalian, then became “born again” in his teens. He headed to Moody Bible Institute […]

Mashup: Family Circus + Jonathan Edwards

posted by Jason Boyett

While taking a shower on Saturday, I had this thought: What if you combined the gentle humor of Family Circus with the hellfire Puritan preaching of the great 18th century American theologian Jonathan Edwards? The answer, of course, is that […]

Writer’s Mailbag: Endorsements

posted by Jason Boyett

What’s the story with endorsements? That’s a question I’ve been asked on numerous occasions. Those little blurbs on the front and back of books…where do they come from? What’s the purpose? How do you get them? Let’s discuss. As you […]

Jason’s Guide to Making Money on eBay

posted by Jason Boyett

That was a shameless headline-grabber of a post title, but I just had to tell this story because it’s so weird. I need an outlet. Since none of you happen to be standing in my vicinity near a water cooler, […]

How Important Is Your Little Toe?

posted by Jason Boyett

If you haven’t made its acquaintance, let me introduce you to Soul Pancake. It’s an interesting place, wrapped around the idea of exploring the intersections of creativity, spirituality, and philosophy. The site asks: Where do you go on the Interwebs […]
