An Introduction

Welcome to my blog!  Please feel free to read my various musings, but only if you promise to participate by commenting as you see fit.  I appreciate any and all feedback, but am especially interested in opposing viewpoints or those that challenge the conclusions that I have drawn.  I welcome the insight that comes from differing opinions and strongly encourage you to speak up as I intend to tackle some rather weighty (and controversial) matters from time to time.

I hope for this blog to be a safe place to bounce around ideas about anything and everything.  I consider myself to be a follower of Jesus, believing that he was exactly who he said he was -- the son of God.  As a result, many of my contributions to this blog will be centered around topics pertaining to God, the Bible, the church and similar themes.  While such issues have the opportunity to lead to disagreement, I do welcome healthy debate as I feel that the strongest beliefs are those that have been put to the test.

By the way, I do take requests.  If there is something you would like for me to expound upon, let me know.  (You can check my profile to see those things which I may know a little about or find to be particularly interesting.)  While I might be ignorant about most things, that does not mean that I don't have an opinion that I don't mind sharing.  If I can learn something while making a fool of myself, then I will consider it a worthwhile endeavor.

I hope to see you around.

  1. Awesome! You'll be great at this. I never like to talk about controversial subjects on my blog, so I'll be coming here to do that.

  2. Shake and Bake, Barton. This better be good. There are a lot of YouTube videos I could be spending my time watching but instead I'm willing to donate some my 6 hours of daily net time for a little Barton blog. Don't make it too heavy, though. Just include the occasional "cat playing a piano" video to keep it interesting, please.
