Pantone desserts.

Epiphany cake!  The Orthodox tradition doesn’t necessarily call for the cake (the Orthodox tradition really only calls for a version of sweet pastry/ cake during Easter); but if I have time, I want to make it this year.  I just need to gather round some trinkets.  I’m pretty sure I’ll have enough around the house…

Things I’ve learned; Pioneer Woman writes on losing her grandmother. 

Just because she’s drunk, doesn’t mean she wants to fuck; is a photoset on tumblr.  Powerful and always – always – relevant.

The #1 career mistake capable people make; an interesting article, which led me to another interesting article, linked below.

The slightly painful truth is, at any one time there is only one piece of real estate we can "own" in another person’s mind. People can’t think of us as a project manager, professor, attorney, insurance agent, editor and entrepreneur all at exactly the same time. They may all be true about us but people can only think of us as one thing first.

The disciplined pursuit of less.

currently trying to figure out: orthodoxy and evolution.

with one comment

One of my biggest problems with Christianity is burning Harry Potter books denial of evolution.  When I started my renewed foray into Orthodoxy, this was one of the first subjects constantly on my mind.

I still need to read more, but I’ve started, and I’ve started with the following:

Evolution on OrthodoxWiki

Orthodoxy and Creationism, an article by A. Kuraev

Earth, a Home for Life (also, resources links at the end of the article)

Orthodoxy on Faith and Science

Are Science and Religion Compatible?

Orthodoxy and Creationism (another article of such title)

I haven’t read all of these just yet; this is more of a reading list I want to get through during the next week.
