How would you like to be remembered?

“As someone who did the best she could with the talent she had.”
– J.K. Rowling in a interview on ‘A Year in the Life’ ITV2

… and with the opportunities she was given.

That’s not a bad epitaph to aspire to. I’ve always liked the single-line summaries that Kings and Chronicles gives to the few good kings of Judah…

“Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God.” 2 Chron 14:2

That’s not a bad thing to aspire to either…

  1. I’ve enjoyed your blog…even though it’s only the first day of 2008, you’ve 22 posts…I suppose you must have moved from another Blog server. Anyways, I agree with many of your observations, in particular the ones mentioned in your post Is Stallone a Christian. As a Christian myself, I’d like to look at meaningful themes in the media: books, movies, and our culture today. I choose not to distinguish and label my blog as a “Christian Blog” for the reason that I can be more effective in bridging the “secular” with the “sacred”, or, as you’ve observed, the dichotomy bewteen the “Christian” and the “Non-Christian” world. —Arti of Ripple Effects

  2. Yup – just moved to wordpress, and the other blog server wouldn’t let me export my previous blogs to a file in order for me to imprt them here. Oh well, it’s done now.

    Thanks for your comment, I want to be open about this being a blog by a Christian – I’m open about it in the rest of my life. Hopefully it will be a blog where real issues are confronted and not shirked though! It’s as much for my benefit of thinking things through than everyone else’s!
