Things have been so crazy in our society lately that I find myself being nostalgic for simpler times. I’ve been listening to The Cranberries (especially their show in Paris—Beneath the Skin) because 1) their music is very good; and 2) it reminds me of when I was in college when our society hadn’t yet lost its collective mind. The opening song, Promises, as well as Pretty, When You’re Gone, and Ridiculous Thoughts are definitely performances in that show worth checking out. The Nineties were a fun decade—great music, great movies, and great TV shows. And there was no cancel culture or woke nonsense.
I’ve also been on a Blue Bloods kick, lately. They’ve been showing marathons of the police drama twice a week on Ion Television on Sundays and Wednesdays. I’ve always liked Tom Selleck, but the rest of the cast is superb as well. The show has a conservative, pro-police, pro-family slant, which is refreshing in this day and age, not to mention that it’s just very entertaining.
I recently got off Facebook, and it’s been a good decision so far. I feel like my relationships are improving, and I feel more at peace. I was hesitant to get off for three reasons: 1) I was able to get some news on there that was hard to find elsewhere; 2) it provided me a platform on which to share my blog and podcast; and 3) it allowed me to keep in touch with people whom I wouldn’t otherwise get to interact with. I had privacy concerns about Facebook, and I was also frustrated with the increasing censorship of conservatives. It’s also highly addictive, a big distraction, and colossal waste of time. I will miss the memes, though.
In the past I’ve written several blog posts on SBC issues. I’ve been wanting to write another one as I’ve watched the woke, CRT craziness take over the denomination, but it’s kind of like, “What’s the point?” I feel like a broken record, and complaining about things is getting us nowhere. My frustration with the SBC is at a very high level for sure, though. It’s not just the liberal drift of the denomination, but it’s also the refusal of the leaders to listen to the people in the pews that bewilders me.
I’ve really been wanting to write a novel, but I haven’t gotten very far. I come up with great ideas, but I have a difficult time developing them. So for now I guess I’ll stick with my blog. I have several ideas in the queue, so look for some upcoming blog posts in the next few weeks.
Well, I guess that’s it for now. I hope you have a great week. And stay tuned for more posts. Thanks for reading.
