I realize that some of my readers, like some of my loved ones, are concrete and prefer that I spell things out. So...
I will not be devoting another jot of space on this blog to politics. And that is because I will not be devoting another moment of my life to it, either.
I am done with politics. When I say I'm done, I mean that in the way an addict is done with heroine. It's not that I don't care; it's that I care way too much. I am done with it dominating my life. I realize that government was God's idea and that makes government inherently good. But politics was man's idea. It is at once above me and beneath me. It is at once wonderful and terrible.
In the immortal words of Elton John:
Maybe you'll get a replacement.
There's plenty like me to be found.
Like a heroine addict, I will be filling the void with better things. Rather than work for temporal things that pass away--like nations--I will be working for eternal things.
But I've finally decided my future lies here: wife, mom, friend, sheologian, member of my church and The Church, reader of books, observer of culture.
And those are the kinds of things you will see on this blog. Actually, I've already had requests from people in different places for specific topics.
Now. Where was I?
