Uncomfortable Questions and a Very Small House

Hey everybody! Right now I’m freshly arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana where I am spending Hallowe’en and Samhain.

In lieu of a post I want to point you at an interview I recently did with C. Luke Mula. Luke is the innovator who came up with the idea of faith design: the science of designing religions to maximize the impact on followers’ lives. Luke asked me some questions I have never heard before, cornering me about why I emphasize the tangible aspects of religions and making me finally come clean about my own personal beliefs. It was a fun interview and I think you’ll enjoy it. You can find it here.

Last, I want to give a special shout out to Rogue Priest regular Laura LaVoie. Laura is in the midst of building a tiny house to simplify and improve her life. Living your dream is part of the Heroic Life, but so is helping others… and in a fit of heroism, Laura is heading to Africa to build houses for orphans. This got her a spotlight article over at Patheos, so take a look and learn all about Laura’s awesomeness. Congrats on everything, Laura!

Okay everyone, that ought to keep you busy for a bit. Have a wonderful weekend and get ready for some New Orleans action on Monday!

  1. As a new reader this interview helped clarify some of my questions about what this blog was all about. I like how you handled the question regarding what it is you actually believe. My partner is somewhat of a hardcore atheist and I always have a hard time exlaining what I believe, but he can’t separate the two–either you’re delusional and believe in god(s) or you don’t. So I tend to take the easy road with him and talk about psychological meanings, which isn’t very satisfying–it doesn’t help that I’m highly skeptical myself, which is why I tend to focus on the tangibles as well:).

    • It can be frustrating dealing with a very convinced atheist, but it can also be very useful in helping you hone your own worldview – which it sounds like you’ve figured out :) Hopefully he challenges his own assumptions and beliefs too!

  2. Wow, that was cool.

    I saw the title post on your FB page and said “Oh, cool, I like very small houses…” and clicked on it. I didn’t expect it to actually be about me!

    I really want to spread the word about the projet with the Zulu Orphan Alliance – thank you so much for boosting the signal!
