What my pizza says about me


What Your Pizza Reveals


There are no limits to your eating. You often devour the scraps your friends can’t finish.
You consider pizza to be bread… very good bread. You fit in best in the Midwest part of the US.You like food that’s traditional and well crafted. You aren’t impressed with “gourmet” foods.You are dependable, loyal, and conservative with your choices. 

You are a flavorful and bold person. You should consider traveling to Spain.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You’re the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.

What Does Your Pizza Say About You?

Not sure how accurate this is, but it’s interesting! Hat tip to Sally.

Hoping to back to more like normal service soon, as I gradually get more and more things in place in my new home.

Moved at last

Sorry to be slow blogging recently. I have been working hard on my new house with the aim of making it habitable. I seem to have spent most of the last month tiling and otherwise redecorating my bathroom – I did start before Christmas, and it still isn’t completely finished. But it is complete enough for me to move in tonight, just less than a month since I got the keys.

For the moment my computer and office things remain at the old house, not least because I still haven’t got a phone line at the new one. I was waiting for TalkTalk to set me up with their very good free broadband offer, only to find out yesterday that they can’t do it unless I first have the BT line put in my name – which implies a one year minimum contract with BT. Why didn’t they tell me that a month ago? So I am going back to BT, who can probably set up my phone line in a few days, and Metronet for broadband, who promise to transfer my account in a week. Maybe I will try TalkTalk next year.

Rev Sam on the Virgin Birth

Just before Christmas I caused a bit of a storm with some of my comments on the Virgin Birth. I have now just found that my fellow Essex blogger Rev Sam (hat tip to yet another Essex blogger, Paul Trathen) has spent much of the Christmas season (that is, in our shared Anglican tradition, the twelve days from Christmas to Epiphany) writing an extended series on The Marginality of the Virgin Birth. In this series he makes a number of the same kinds of points which I made, but in greater depth, and gives sensible and clearly argued reasons why he cannot believe in the literal virgin birth of Jesus, although otherwise he holds to orthodox Christian teaching. While I don’t agree with everything that Rev Sam says here, I much appreciate his take on these issues.

What's my eschatology?

ElShaddai Edwards recommended yet another theology quiz, this time What’s your eschatology? Well, I know my eschatology is somewhat confused. I used to be a premillenialist but without believing in a rapture before or during the tribulation. But my position has gradually been changing to something more on the lines of Moltmannian eschatology, to which ElShaddai provides a useful introduction. I studied some Moltmann years ago at London Bible College, and perhaps more of it rubbed off than I realised. But this also ties up with the kind of position I was looking at in my post on the book Breakthrough. So here are my results, based on quite a number of answers in the middle of the spectrum to questions which I could not really answer:

You scored as Moltmannian EschatologyJürgen Moltmann is one of the key eschatological thinkers of the 20th Century. Eschatology is not only about heaven and hell, but God’s plan to make all things new. This should spur us on to political and social action in the present.

Anglican bloggers on Facebook

Dave Walker of the Cartoon Blog has started a Facebook group for Anglican bloggers and blog commenters. I mention this here as an invitation to you to join (if you are Anglican, and a Facebook member or prepared to become one) and to give me an excuse to post this cartoon which goes with the group:
