mnphysicist’s theological blog is where I discuss matters of faith, life, and theology. I was a co-leader of one of the largest Christ focused message boards in the world (as measured by bigboards.com) for quite a while. I’m not sure if it was more challenging to keep a couple hundred thousand members, 8-10 staff chaplains, or a hundred plus staff members happy, but it was an interesting time for sure. As a co-leader, there were just too many times when I wanted to write something, but it just wasn’t appropriate to bring up there, and thus while I had a site blog, this one stood alone.
I’m really conservative from a Christological point of view, and a flaming liberal in matters of society/morality, but am not an antinomian. I believe righteous living is accomplished through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, much less so a Christian brother or sister pounding on another. This is not to say the law should not be preached… but that it is then in the Holy Spirits hands to effect change, not ours.
I wrote a personal statement of faith some years back, its a continuous work in progress as the Holy Spirit needs. The process of writing and revising I find incredibly helpful in my walk.
I worked in aviation for years, as a college student it was nearly a full time job, and then when engineering became my mainstay, flight instruction became a part time gig. My aviation site focuses on resources for flight schools and instructors, but it may be of general interest as well. In my younger days, I often thought I’d follow in my first bosses footsteps, and go big into flight instruction after retirement. Alas, I followed his footsteps all right, albeit skipping some decades to the point I can no longer pass a 3rd class medical without significant hoop jumping. Thus short of some miracle, I’m pretty much grounded, albeit its still a cool thing to fly a chalkboard!
I’ve also taught bass guitar, did the roadie thing as a young guy, and still run sound and play bass from time to time. Back in the day, I was a bass player for hire, pretty much any style, and any place I could drive to in under 6 hours. I’ve played in over 3/4 of the states, and 4 countries.
Tech Blog, Gadgets, and Work
Inventors Garage is my old blog, and is written in a very informal conversational style. I post there in spurts primarily in the domain of gadgets, webstuff, and randomness. Its been around since 2004 or so. Everything from medical to consumer electronics to web media, a soup to nuts approach, although why anyone would have nuts in their soup is beyond me.
I’m a tech dude for hire as well, if you need assistance with analog design, product development, or a tech firefighter on call, give me a holler.
I used to be a Republican, and switched parties, even worked for President Obama’s campaign. Years ago, I was involved in state government, albeit in an appointed role. I blog on political matters at www.ronamundson.com/blog/
