  • About Me

    About little old me?
    Well, I really am a Lutheran Pastor.
    I write, I read, I play computer games obsessively.
    Married, two sons!
    6' 6" tall.
    Ummmmm....... Don't know what else to say.

    Oh, and don't bother with random friend requests. I don't like them. If I don't recognize your name from one of the few threads I read in the forums, I'm not likely to accept.

      That's ridiculous! Completely and utterly . . . GAH!

      I think it was their go-to excuse when people weren't good enough.

      Not a problem, I'm trying to work on security for the house.

      Have you been getting hit as well?

      The kids that have been going thru the area smashing windows are no longer content with windows, they have taken to smashing bodies of cars... they hit my new Liberty the week before last, my neihbors house last week and I heard they trashed a pickup.

      The first 5 times (literally) I let it go, I figured karma from when I was a kid and did stupid crap (mine involved watermellons and mailboxes), but that debt was paid 2 times over.

      So I bought an 8 camera night vision camera system with intelli-tracking, I'm going to get them trashing my car(s) on DVD and press charges I've spent over $2000 in damages, I'm done.

      Hey we should do some more Portal 2 co-op. Give me a hollar on steam when you want to do some more. It'll be a good way to work off some of that adoption stress.

      That makes your church even cooler. It's already cool because you're the pastor, but that announcement makes at least twice as cool as it was before.

      That is very cute. Beth and Isaac both keep asking when we are going back to Isaiah's house.
      The other day when i checked the GPS and announced we were 'nearly there' (ie to our next campsite) Isaac perked up and said, "To Isaiah's house?"
      So i think the impression went both ways!

      What would that be? I post a lot of things on Facebook that I don't journal about here. I don't really journal here much at all. XD

      It's a little wierd to be heralded as an upcoming FU, as if the honour wasn't fuss enough.
      And i don't think there is a hint of irony in that abbreviation, either.

      well 2-3 years is still a pretty good time to get to the shelf!

      I cant tell you how excited I am for you!

      haven't gotten anything back from Firaxis yet, I'll keep everyone posted. Teams can run up to 50 people, the 5 thing was just the minimum to register.

      I've been trying to temper my expectations for the year. This game is why. The Eagles have a terrible defense, which isn't a problem when the offense is hot.

      Nah, you did great. Sound issues are nothing new and nothing we can't deal with. Josh cleans up the pauses in the releases now.

      You should call in more often!

      Any luck on the adoption?

      I have it on steam. I couldn't figure out how to get the bonus disc (gives a bonus henchman and an extra item for the staff room) to work properly. You can find out how to install the patches online.

    • Satarus

      6 years ago

      Gameplay is a little slow but overall it's pretty fun. Just make sure you patch the game all the way and include the unofficial patch. It fixes up some really annoying bugs. Plus making some complicated death traps is always a blast.

      Do you still regard Mary as a virgin? I know some denominations say that Jesus had a brother. If lutherns do I was wondering what the bible passages are that say that.

      Thanks

      Hello, I noticed you are a Lutheran pastor and I am catholic and I had a few questions for you. I don't want to be bothersome but I was just wondering :
      Does your church follow guidelines set by an organization?
      Do you have saints? and
      How do you regard Mary(i.e. Virgin Mother)?

      Right now my only two planned stops are to see Linnea in Chicago and to see Devils Tower (because thechance to play the Close Encounter music in front of it on the oboe is too great a chance to pass up!) But I'll keep your gigantic jolly green giant in mind!

I'm gonna make one everyday. just join and you'll see the first issue and than the preview of the name for the next one. There's a long description in the group so if you wanna read it go ahead :P

      Yes it's kind of a wasteland, but it's also a very quiet forum and we lose nothing by it being there. So I'm inclined to let it stay.

      I wasn't sure if you saw this video in my journal but my Pastor (Presbytarian, so kinda in the same part of the spectrum as y'all) and I cracked up over it. We agree that without the clear cynacism, most churches would use it as a promo for their desired service structure.
      As a brother in the fight against inane hype, i thought you'd appreciate it.

      I just found out Oral Roberts passed away right here where I live. I posted a journal about it, but I think there should be something said in the Christian's Group about it.

      Hey John - i noticed Wayne Batson references the CSFF tour in the back of his Isle of Swords pirate adventure (I'm nearly done reading it with my son at the moment) Did you ever review it in your blog?

    • Rev_Pleb

      7 years ago

      Thanks for that. I was pretty certain it was 'for the win' but not sure enough to use it without hesitation.

      There's nothing like getting on a pop-culture bandwagon and then finding out shady implications or understandings that require furious backpedalling. Or apologies. Or resignations!

    • Rev_Pleb

      I figured you would know how it is. The local Anglican minister does funerals every other week. I've been here 7 years and this is my first. Thankfully, we work together in a town this size so he is shepherding me through it.

      I'm surprisingly ok with all of the 'professional' elements - it doesn't faze me. It just sucks that it has to happen at all.

      Unfortunately, you are correct. They skipped episode seven. Episode nine is tonight, episode ten is this Saturday, and episode eight is next Monday. I have no idea why they're doing it that way. But there's a link to watch episode seven online in the group (here we go) if you want to catch up before tonight. I can try to find a link to eight too. Ah, here we go.

      Glad i didn't tread on your toes. I look forward to the evolution of the idea. I'd read it!
