Longest Trip of My Life

Hello my CCG friends! My wife and I are getting packed up to depart for the longest trip I've ever been on. Traveling to China, New Zealand, and Australia over many many weeks, which will log about 80 hours in airplane rides alone! I wanted to take a minute to let everyone know, since I likely won't...

Re: JK's Art Thread

More art from the upcoming game. Figured it doesn't hurt to share it as I go!

Re: A Not So Blockheaded Question:

Was thinking more on this subject yesterday, and here is what I wrote down: Questions are difficult because language is difficult. Language fills a gap for us. It is a way for us to communicate about things *beyond language.* The word "love" does not (generally) jam actual love into us. It is said t...

NT Wright lecture on Heaven and Resurrection

Someone sent me a link to this video on Twitter and I wanted to share it here as well. It is long, but flies by because the information is so compelling. Also I love NT Wright's work, so it was great to hear him speak (usually I just read his writings). Hope you enjoy it!

Re: A Not So Blockheaded Question:

Well the main reasons for communication are to be heard and to receive information. We like the first, because it feeds into our pride, but the second can be a lot trickier because sometimes what we want to hear and what we do hear are two very different things. :) As ArcticFox says, we also forget ...

Re: JK's Art Thread

Been a while again! Here is an early character model sheet for our next Weekend Panda game, plus some of the 5 minute rough icons I did to use as we figure out the game's mechanics. https://www.weekendpanda.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/hazel_WIP800.png https://www.weekendpanda.com/wp-content/uploa...

Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!


(Side note: Notice how so much of our culture has shaped itself to honor the Seven Deadly Sins, rather than avoid them?)
It's true. I hadn't considered that consciously before, but you're spot on there.

Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!

It makes me wonder why this is... if Christ mentioned it, it had to have been important. Why don't more Christian churches incorporate it into their practices? Map it along side the other really, really challenging things Christ tells us to do (like love our enemies) and I bet you will find some in...

Re: On Seeking

Ha ha, indeed. Though I think once you find him then that good ol' Sanctification process begins in earnest. :)

A never ending journey, that! (Well, at least in this lifetime.)

Re: Getting into Blender...

Nice! I've never played around with Blender but I hear very good things about it. If you need any thoughts on the animation side (not the program itself, but animation principles and stuff) let me know. I've been at it for like 15 years now. It's a wonderful time, though very hard, ha ha.

On Seeking

I am currently working on a short book that talks about Seeking, specifically seeking God and finding him, as is promised in the Bible. I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts in general, or specifically? I'm going to be doing more biblical study on the terms and how it applies to/in Scriptu...

Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!

Fasting is one thing I do not do enough of, personally. It was never something I heard much about growing up, and I do not have an active spiritual community that does it now either. I have fasted in the past for specific purposes, and I found that it did indeed refocus my thoughts on God. It worked...
