Ericast 202 - Carrying Christmas Forward

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

How do we treat "Christmas" as more than a time for some vacation and a couple gift exchanges with Santa and a manger scene thrown in for decoration?  How do we live it out during the other 364 days of the year?  Here are a couple brief thoughts from Brian Hardin of the Daily Audio Bible and Rob Ketterling of River Valley Church that help to frame how I view my "relationship with Jesus" -- which is one of those freaky Evangelical terms that doesn't make much sense until you sit down and listen to what people do (and don't!) mean by it.

(For what it's worth, Brian's commentary about how we don't talk to our friends had me literally laughing out loud when I first heard it.  He makes a really, really good point...)

Let me know what you think -- as always, 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or email me (eric) at and share your thoughts and reactions.  Merry Christmas!

Ericast 201 - Deep Introspection Experience

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

This week, a strangely deep and personal reflection on who I am at the very core of my personality.  Intrigued?  Take a listen!  Then call 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) and let me know what you think.

Before you do that, you might want to visit and listen to some of the technology-related musings there... In case you need a techno-fix that this week's episode doesn't provide.

And if you want to check out the Tusen.Tk site that I mentioned, it's out there too.

And the Simpsons reference is from Season 14, Episode 4:
Chief Wiggum: Ready.
Lisa: Mom! Do something!
Chief Wiggum: Aim.
Marge: I got to stop them from shooting I…I don't... Lisa, don't hate me for this. (Runs on top of a stand)
Chief Wiggum: Continue Aiming. Still aiming.

Be sure to listen all the way to the end of this week's podcast, past the outro, But keep small children away from you when you do. Yikes.
