    I'm with you there. I mean... how can you get any better than "The King of Love My Shepherd Is" and "I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light"? (Actually, I went to the Summit recently for the youth conference, and we definitely rocked out to that one powerpoint style... I was pleased to see that Episcopalians can only clumsily do the powerpoint worship thing).

    My friend James and I joke all the time about starting a praise band and opening for Sufjan. It's going to be AWE-sooome!



    Our church is full of NFs and a generous sprinkling of NTs.
    The church I call "home" is too, but now I go to a kind of regular, moderate Episcopal church where I get nearly no sense of most people's personalities.

    *scowls at powerpoint worship* I miss the hymnals. I hope they come back into fashion in Charismatic-land again soon and I hope they just got put in a dusty storage closet instead of having been thrown out.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    Yeah... praise music...

    "I want to walk as a Child of the light" is my favorite hymn. I recently figured out how to play it on my banjo, and so last sunday I played it at the methodist church whose college student group I hang out with, along with a song I wrote called "Weed Wacking For Jesus" (it's about calling and vocation ) as the service prelude. Both went over pretty well. I had written a another song too called "This is a praise song" but did not sing it at church because it's main purpose is to poke fun at praise music, (the look ma no talent kind) and I don't think many would find it all that edifying.

    Oh yeah, I dislike power point intensely, mainly because I never know what to do with my hands when I am singing.

    Please stop saying that name -- I keep getting confused and thinking you are referring to Sanjaya!

    I think that means that I should say Sufjan's name MORE, because Sufjan is actually amazing and interesting, and if you do not associate Sufjan with -ness, you are missing something. And that you associate Sufjan with some horrifyingly terrible American Idol contestant (I had to look it up) really means that you should turn off the TV and turn up the Illinoise. Let's work up a new schema, friend!

    Well, I would agree with that. Sufjan sounds far better than Sanjaya.

    And that you associate Sufjan with some horrifyingly terrible American Idol contestant (I had to look it up) really means that you should turn off the TV and turn up the Illinoise. Let's work up a new schema, friend!
    I've never watched the show. But Sanjaya followed me on the radio and Internet everywhere I went...! (Auuuggh.)

My consciousness will diffuse upon death, but until then I'll just revel in that which can only be known in a state of existential ignorance. Once I return to my God state, then I'll remember what it's like to be restricted and this is how my omniscience avoids being a self-contradictory concept (or so I think).

    I also realize that I still have much to learn. Words such as learning, memory, word, and God are firmly rooted in the human predicament. I simply can't understand reality for what it is while I'm alive, but I can certainly try my best.

    Atheist. But it's an odd label. bleah. I've just written and deleted 5 attempts at explaining what I mean. 6th attempt and I won't delete it, no matter how garbled.

    It's an odd label for me because I don't see the need to say 'I don't believe in a god'. Other people believe in a god. But if I didn't know about that, it would not occur to me to label myself an atheist.

    I suspect that doesn't really capture what I want to say but I will post it anyway.
