I’m implementing a post I’m going to start doing called Recap (the concept is more important than the name) where every week I’ll be dropping links to some things I’ve been involved in throughout the week, whether that’s site developments or new blog/writing being published, etc. I’ll use this to go back and grab past work of mine, but I hope it will be fun to read through as well.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m on a regular posting schedule over at Daily Blog Tips now. A post of mine talking about widening your blog to take advantage of larger average screen sizes went up today. There is a decent discussion starting up on the topic, which will be worth checking out if that’s your kind of thing.
According to the HU website, chapels exist for the purpose of “spiritual formation.” Unfortunately, in practice, this doesn’t seem to be their true purpose. The true purpose of chapels is to coerce students to certain events which they wouldn’t otherwise be interested in going to.
Consider some of the events you receive chapel credit for. Now hold that thought for a moment.

It is that season again: the season where all good Christian girls and boys sit around the table and talk about who is doing what for Lent. Popular choices include things like ice cream, fatty foods, and television. Not surprisingly, many of the things we give up are good for us to rid ourselves of anyway – bad habits, unhealthy diets, etc. Kind of makes the “giving up” process a little easier, does it not?

A small group of my colleagues today (which could probably be extended into a much larger group) were unsettled by today’s chapel speaker. I’m not one to name names, but let’s just say it was insulting to us on both an academic and a theological level.

The American Heritage Dictionary says “inconsistency” means “the state or quality of being inconsistent.” Helpful, right? “Inconsistent” is defined as something which is “lacking in correct logical relation,” or “incompatible.”
By this definition, then, Huntington is inconsistent.

If I have my way my kids won’t believe in Santa. I won’t teach them to believe in “him”.
