I Affirm This
The Nashville Statement
Daniel of Doulogos Name:Daniel
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
About Me: I used to believe that evolution was reasonable, that homosexuality was genetic, and that people became Christians because they couldn't deal with the 'reality' that this life was all there was. I used to believe, that if there was a heaven - I could get there by being good - and I used to think I was more or less a good person. I was wrong on all counts. One day I finally had my eyes opened and I saw that I was not going to go to heaven, but that I was certainly going to suffer the wrath of God for all my sin. I saw myself as a treasonous rebel at heart - I hated God for creating me just to send me to Hell - and I was wretched beyond my own comprehension. Into this spiritual vacuum Jesus Christ came and he opened my understanding - delivering me from God's wrath into God's grace. I was "saved" as an adult, and now my life is hid in Christ. I am by no means sinless, but by God's grace I am a repenting believer - a born again Christian.

The Buzz

Daniel's posts are almost always pastoral and God centered. I appreciate and am challenged by them frequently. He has a great sense of humor as well.
- Marc Heinrich

His posts are either funny or challenging. He is very friendly and nice.
- Rose Cole

[He has] good posts, both the serious like this one, and the humorous like yesterday. [He is] the reason that I have restrained myself from making Canadian jokes in my posts.
- C-Train

This post contains nothing that is of any use to me. What were you thinking? Anyway, it's probably the best I've read all day.
- David Kjos

Daniel, nicely done and much more original than Frank the Turk.
- Jonathan Moorhead

There are some people who are smart, deep, or funny. There are not very many people that are all 3. Daniel is one of those people. His opinion, insight and humor have kept me coming back to his blog since I first visited earlier this year.

Because I gotta post sumphim...
I had last week off, and spent it finishing stairs in the foyer of my chateau, and adding baseboards to the remainder of my home - as well as installing cork flooring in my bathroom. In doing so I developed a new found respect for the art of finishing carpentry. I had some left over hard wood flooring, and so I decided I would use some of it in the entryway as sort of a wainscoting, upon which I would rest the molded baseboards that have been waiting these last five months for an install. The trouble is our Foyer flanges out from our living room with some pretty nasty angles, and in order to have the baseboard follow the angle of the stairs that go up into the living room, it required a compound angle cut - one which was mathematically easy to figure out, but entirely a different matter to implement given the precision of the tools at hand, the wobbly nature of walls, and the imperfections of materials at hand.

Suffice to say, I had opportunity to learn contentment, and appreciate the skill involved in doing something I had always (arrogantly) presumed was pretty simple. I must have wasted an hundred dollars worth of wood just cutting in this one angle. I would post pictures of it, but I am ashamed of how sloppy it looks.

I finally finished the rest of the house on Sunday evening, but not before entombing the whole place in a (not so fine) layer of sawdust, though I made every effort to keep the dust down.

Monday and Tuesday I was on a course, so this is the first moment I really have to update the blog, and though there are a few things of substance I should like to blog about, this is all I have time for at the moment.
