my name is ross

I am now a blogger. I tried this once before, without much success and without much to say. Hopefully this time around will be different. But I don't have much to say right now, so things aren't looking too great.

I'm hoping to have a few things to say so that this doesn't simply become another one of Leah's blogs. She already has a few of them, and never writes on any of them. I'm hoping that I can encourage her to persevere. After all, John Calvin says that perseverance of the saints is one of the characteristics of a Calvinist and a true Christian. We'll start with perseverance of the blog, and hopefully we can work our way up to saints.

And in a rather crude adaptation of the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians..."If anyone has no love for this blog, let him be accursed." Well, maybe not quite that strong. But at least read it and comment.


  1. I'm glad you're blogging with me...even though you're a religion geek! Thanks for committing to the perseverance of the blog.

  2. Oh, goody. A duo-blog. I am excited.

  3. Remember, there will be those days that you simply don't feel like writing long posts about the nature of God and delving into the depths of spiritual apologetics and such. On those days, you can put your hands together in a V, insert your mouth into the bottom of said V, and make farting sounds. This will remind you of your friend Adam, who doesn't need his mouth and hands to make those the everlasting regret of his suffocating wife.

  4. And in order to verify that it was a human being submitting a comment, I just had to type in the word "Amish". I think you know what Jesus is telling you to do. Fart in your hands.

  5. I'm excited that Leah is marrying someone who reads John Calvin (or at least quotes from Calvin!). If you read Spurgeon, too, Ross, we'll have lots to talk about at the wedding. Either way, we're looking forward to seeing you two get hitched (and Tanner is looking forward to talking StarTrek and MST3K with Eddie again).
    See ya soon! - Todd S.
