I wrote predominantly about business, the Christian church, and family. I also post DJ mixes when I have them ready, which is almost entirely reliant on the alignment of the planets. You can find the main areas of navigation using the menu at the bottom.
Regarding the church, I believe it is not something that you can go to, or even on one level, something that you can choose to be. Jesus Christ has three primary expressions: one is seated beside the Father, another lives within our hearts and gives us His life, and another exists communally when believers gather. You might call this the Body of Christ. I believe the church is that particular expression of Christ expressed by a group of people, consequently it cannot be attended, or attempted, it is something that the Spirit of God produces in His people. Through the intentional investment of time and emotional energy with a small group of people we have begun to experience this true reality of the Body of Christ, where there is no leader, but there is a head, and his name is Jesus Christ. And this Body life makes everything else pale in comparison. A lot of my writing on the church starts with this as a given.
Regarding business, I am passionate about radical employee empowerment, flat hierarchy-less organizations, and the “communicative truth” in marketing. One day I hope to work free of a title and a job description, and to free other employees to do likewise. After high-school I went to work at a large “Christian organization” in Toronto and have been there ever since. I very literally started cleaning the toilets, and am currently the Director of Technology. One of my most read posts is an evaluation of church management (ChMS) software.
Regarding family, I am husband to a wonderful woman, Maija; we married in 2005 in Canada. We have 3 beautiful children, two boys and a girl. My sons’ names are tattooed on my chest, a process which took longer than the birth/delivery of either of them (like I said, wonderful woman). Our kids were all born in Finland, where we have lived for 5 years.
I started blogging in 2004 (along with everyone else), shortly before graduating from teenage-hood. Some of the stuff I wrote back then is pretty strange. I believe there is some personal value to a record of my life and thoughts, so I leave them where they are. If you dig deep enough you’ll find it, though I hardly recommend you make the effort :)
