Being a dad has its cool moments, its really cool moments, its really very cool moments – but it also has those “ok-how-am-i-going-to-deal-with-this-?” moments.
six years of writing.
Kind of sad, but the database had been so badly corrupted by sql injection, that nothing could be saved. I’ve got the content backed up. Maybe, someday, I’ll go through and do a “best of” – or a “that made me giggle!”
I’m sad. There’s a lot of interesting stuff there. But I can’t figure out how to clean it up. And google has blacklisted the site.
When I first set up this domain, it was to post the writing that I was doing. As I created resources for worship or for congregational use, I would post them here.

For a long time, I was blogging at richard.peacefulwaters.org (with many thanks to Jen – a friend I’ve never met, but one I’m glad I’ve met!) I wrote quite a bit there, during my time at St. Marys United Church.
Then I became a daddy. My life changed. (Ok – understatement of my decade.) My non-work-time became rather – focused. So I started to blog less.
Then I moved to a new ministry, and started serving with the people of St. Andrew’s-Haney United Church in Maple Ridge, BC. My life changed again. (Moving across the country will do that.)

Part of it (and, yes, I know it’s a kind of snobbishness), is that the Nexus One isn’t sold in Canada – so I’m one of the very few on this side of the border who has one.
But the other part is – it’s not Microsoft and it’s not Apple… and the apps work with ever open source program I run.
I love it!
