I read Obama's The Audacity Of Hope and found it fascinating, especially helpful as I think about the upcoming 2008 elections. It is not often one gets to read a book written by a presidential candidate before he or she began the bid for the White House. I encourage everyone to read it, whether you're thinking of voting for Obama or McCain. Keep in mind, the book was written a few years ago; after you finish it, learn more about Obama's views and thoughts by reading and listening to his more recent press statements and speeches. See my review of The Audacity Of Hope (pdf).

Haven't bloggedy blogged in a while. Something to do with life in the non-virtual world, r-world vs e-world, that sort of thing. And I don't want to talk about presidential elections or r-world or e-world wars right now. So here's a totally non-heavy blog topic: I've always loved those "as seen on TV" gadgets and stuff when I've been at the county or state fairs. (Don't watch much r-TV, so I never saw them on TV.) But now there is a kind of e-TV place for those "as seen on..." entities and here it is: AS SEEN ON TV! Reviews

Jan and I have supported the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) since its beginnings. The Winter07 issue of EEN Magazine Creation Care is one of the most important documents on environmentalism to date: EEN and CC Magazine; print copy Winter2007. Another important topic of this landmark CC issue is the Evangelical Climate Initiative (ECI) and "Carbon Offsetting" (page 12); see carbonfund.org for details. Students can read about the Evangelical Youth Climate Initiative (page 14) and visit the Restoring Eden website. Think about "carbon offsetting." Considere supporting the EEN. Shalom.
