Biblical Theology of Temple

Recently preached on a Biblical Theology of Temple. You can watch the video here. I was more concerned about accurately presenting Biblical Theology than extemporaneous presentation, so there was much reading. Next time should be on a Biblical Theology of Shepherd.

Sermon starts at 46:00
It is also available for download here.

Ham Radio - KK7ARH

Yesterday, I took the HAM radio exams for Technician and General status, and passed both. I have to wait a few days to receive my callsign, and then I'll be able to converse upon the amateur radio waves, and partake in interesting technologies, such as APRS.
Growing up, my dad had a plethora of radios/communication devices: business radios in our vehicles, a 100' radio tower in our backyard, shortwave radios for backcountry flying, walkie talkies, handheld ham radios, CB radios, airplane radios, a radio telephone bridge, a radio telephone in his Jeep, remote audio and video transmission, and probably several other things I can't recollect. I remember visiting mountain top lookouts and testing radio connections. Many fun memories.

Aeron Remastered

 

I've been working from home for quite some time, and have worn out my office chair. I've gone through a couple in the last two decades, so decided to get a higher quality chair and went with the Aeron Remastered. Pretty excited about it.
