there's been a lot of research and stuff written by very smart people over the past couple of decades about adolescence lasting until we're thirty. the research and facts and reasoning all point to very solid conclusions. one reason, i'll agree with the smart people is because of what i'm experiencing now. i'm not content with anything right now it seems like. i'm not content with where i'm going to school, where i work, and even where i blog. probably the easiest decision i have to make is whether or not i switch over to typepad to do my blogging. typepad's templates are set up to be updated so much easier than blogger. maybe blogger is more for purist's, but since i'm not one, i need a tool that is quicker and easier to use. i just don't have time to learn how to work with code and other things to make my blog what i want it to be. but then again, its not like i'm posting everyday to make it worth the $5 bucks a month to do it.
the most content i am with the above three mentioned is where i work. my wife and i want to stay in kansas city for a few more years, because we like it here and we feel like there is more work to be done in our ministry to youth here.
my biggest struggle seemed to go away for a little while, but is not back in full force. i don't know where i want to finish up my grad work and i don't know what to get my grad work done in. i'm having lunch with tim keel in a couple weeks to ask his opinion(s) on seminary and the whole deal most specifically with the the programs at Biblical and George Fox. i've had very helpful conversation with tony jones where he gave me some pros and cons about Princeton, Fuller, and Asbury. for me, i'm so early in this graduate work stuff, i don't want to settle for an education that isn't going to be helpful to me. seminary is so screwed up as it is, i want to get the best out of it that i can. the possibilities are almost endless, at least thats the way it seems now, but the possibilities are also exciting.
i'm pretty sure this post sets a record for amount of links. just want to give props to all places and people mentioned.
