  1. You check email all day
  2. You use your best hours to check email
  3. You use email for high priority communication
  4. You use email as your to-do list
  5. You compose or reply when you don’t need to
  6. You get a notification for every email
  7. You have a million emails in your inbox
  8. You use email instead of ________

I teach New Testament at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. I am married with three children. This blog, against all wisdom, includes anything I am interested in. That includes movies, music, theology, culture, hermeneutics, the Gospels, and politics. Feel free to comment and let me know you are reading or that you have found something helpful. I reserve the right to delete unhelpful or rude comments. Many of these posts are simply things I find interesting and therefore I am not asserting I agree with everything I link to.
