My blog has a new name to go along with its new design: βλογάπη. “Marklwardjr,” the old name, was just way too eponymous.
After almost two years, and now having reached the two-subscriber mark (my mother-in-law recently signed up), I think it’s time to pick a name that reflects the twin themes of the blog: theology and tech. As they used to say on the SAT, blog : agape :: tech : theology.
There are a few reasons I talk so much about tech:
- I really believe our generation—of theological students in particular—needs guidance in the use of technology.
- Few other nerdy Fundamentalists combine the twin themes of “Ra Ra!” and “Cave Canem!” when it comes to tech, so I have stepped into the gap.
There are a few reasons why ἀγάπη (agape) makes up the second half of my blog’s new name:
- I can’t help talking about ἀγάπη, because as Hezekiah 45:55 says, “Out of the abundance of the dissertation, the fingers type.”
- I want my blog to provoke you to love and good works. I know it pushes me toward those things, partly through the interaction I get to have with you sometimes. I thank you, my readers, sincerely for that. I dearly want to be holy, and God says we need each other to make that happen.
My RSS feed will remain the same.
