Well, here goes...

You have so many thoughts; perhaps you should upgrade to a normal-sized blog.
-Big Sam Thompson, over Twitter

This is an experiment. I've been reading blogs for a little over a year now, and I'm finally eeking up some of the courage to join in the larger conversations.

The name comes from the title of a hymn by Thomas J Porter:

"See how my people have nothing to eat.
Give them the bread that is you."

Hopefully this blog can be something like that, giving bread to the world, and being nourished by the words of others. We'll see.

Here's what to expect:
  • Reflections on life
  • Faithful heresy regarding God and other subjects of various orthodoxies
  • Announcements about cool (relative term, I know) events and projects
  • Responses from conversations initiated by other blogs
  • The occasional YouTube video
With that last point, here's "The Ballad of Love and Hate," by the Avett Brothers, to sing you to sleep.
