About the Blog

The goal here is to make at least one interesting post every month.

Topics will include religion, science, philosophy, social issues, and the outdoors.

The blog’s title is taken from part of a 17th-century poem by Samuel Rutherford.

  1. Hi Matt. I like your blog…and look forward to reading more. Thank you for “liking” my blog articles Backcountry Bites & Higher Heights. I don’t know how to correspond on my own blog yet – just got it up & running and writing. Learning as I go. But wanted to say thank you, God bless. Lisa

  2. Thanks for liking my blog, Chana’s Song: Praying the Psalms. Because of that, I found you and this wonderful blog. As an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoyed your site and will be back. Blessings to you.

  3. Matt, thanks for dropping by my blog and giving me the “Like”. I understand what you’re saying about being a busy guy. The fact that you’re willing to give of yourself once a month is awesome. Take care and drop by any time.


  4. Matt,
    It sounds like we are a lot alike. I too read philosophy, science, story, and theology. I love poetry, but don’t read enough of it. I backpack regularly and coached the running sports for years. Now I swim and bike to stay in shape. I have a deep interest in helping men to become men, especially fathers with their sons. That’s where my life is moving towards.
    I hope to follow your posts. I am a bit more ambitious (and perhaps foolish) by posting twice a week! I look forward to hearing more from you.

  5. Hi Matt
    Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my post.

    Faith, philosophy and social issues – we have all of those in abundance here in India; they were also the focus of my work as a teacher of religion and ethics in the UK before I moved out here. I’ll keep an eye on your musings!

  6. Hi Matt – thanks for popping by. It seems there are some areas of interest we are sharing. Give me time to peruse your blogs first before commenting further. Cheerio. Walter

  7. It is, I think rare to find a blog that develops the latent synergy of Christian worldview and intellectual observation on culture, science, etc.
    Please keep up the good work

  8. Thanks for making your blog provocative. I like the way you word things. You use a lot of control and keep your thoughts based on a lot of evidence or at least support. Some of your topics go beyond my brain at times, but I appreciate the fact that you aren’t intimidated by the complex topics. Keep going. Keep helping us all think deeper. Also, in light of all the new Facebook “=” signs that I have been seeing, especially by Christians, I thought the following link might be an interesting topic to engage in. It is about a Christian Perspective on Homosexuality: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/a-christian-perspective-on-homosexuality written by William Lane Craig.

    • Thank you Matt…and great article! I actually had the honor of meeting Dr. Craig when he came to speak in my city last fall.

  9. I love your blog, Matt. Great, succinct, and pithy evidence-based truths.

    I often get the “Christianity does nothing but harm in the world” objection. I’ve been wishing I could find something like “The Day Christianity Disappeared”– a look at how much good Christianity does in the world each day. How many are fed, clothed, healed, etc. Just to show them.

    Have you done anything like this? Ever considered it?

    Anyway, blessings!

  10. Hi there! I wanted you to know that I nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! To find out more about that, you can see my upcoming post when it gets published later today! You don’t have to accept it, but either way, I wanted to bless you and that, by doing so, more people will see what you have to say. Lauralee

  11. Hi there! Hope your up for another award πŸ™‚ I nominated your blog for the Excellence Award! To find out more about that, you can see my upcoming post when it gets published later today! Keep up the ‘excellent’ work πŸ˜‰ Lauralee
