Seeing "the older generation" sending one sentence emails and paragraph-length texts never ceases to entertain.

I don’t argue with the Shabbat laws, even if their application varies from person to person. We could all use with a weekly reset.

@PhoneBoy @levisan @willcodeforcoffee @dustinthewind it's easy to call all these rules silly, but I understand the intent of resetting your mind and body every week.

@willcodeforcoffee @PhoneBoy @dustinthewind it sounds like a fascinating conversation to have with an expert over dinner or something… on a Sunday of course.

My initial question was prompted by noticing a major camera/tech store in NYC founded and run by a Jewish duo actually shuts down their e-commerce from 9pm Friday to 9pm Saturday so they don’t have any financial transactions during that time, even though it is a fully automated e-commerce system!

@adam @TheKeeper finally caught up on Curry and Keeper. Enjoying hearing of your theological explorations! You've been given some great book recommendations.

While I might have a direction I hope you end up going in, just hearing that you're willing to respond to the "nudges" and explore and consider is very pleasing to hear.

(I'm in Adam's camp on the music styles, raising hands in worship, and working through things logically FWIW. Maybe that's "a guy thing".)

I'll be praying for you both!

"Today’s artists have more power over their sales and their audience. They may not be starving. They're just burned out."

I'm almost convinced that sourdough has a similar effect on the brain as toxoplasmosis

If Twitter were to join the fediverse, would you use your Twitter account as your primary fedi-persona?
