Parables and Playlists is live.

Welcome to Parables and Playlists, formerly Adverbs, Adventures and Amusements.  This is a new home for an old concept.  I am a Christian, and I love stories and storytelling--Jesus did too.  Hence the parable part.  It is my hope that the story of my life as related on this blog will encourage you and point you to God. 

The second part of the name of this blog, playlists, refers most directly to music.  I love music.  It remains one of God's greatest gifts to us.  I love everything from old-school folk to indie pop.  I've even developed a taste for classic soul thanks to my friend Amen Holman.

This blog will engage with pop culture as a whole: books, movies, television and music from a Christian perspective. This is, after a fashion, a Christian blog in that I am a Christian, so theoretically, my love for Christ should be apparent in my artistic endeavors.

This blog is not  a place to come find out the number of curses in the latest Coen Brothers movie.  Such a place already exists, and frankly, I'm not interested in movie criticism via spreadsheet.  Nor is this blog, necessarily about finding some sort of "Christian" meaning or message in every cultural artifact.

If you want to discuss the soteriological implications of the work of Lou Reed, this is probably not the place for you.  If, however, you're interested in a chronicle of an honest attempt to be "in the world but not of the world" then, you're in the right place.
