Christian Business Ethics: Meet Steve Jobs [Discussion]

Dont Be That Steve

I am deeply haunted by Jesus' words as he has just begun his three year ministry, gained his disciples, and was talking with the local community.

During my late 20's, Dipper Pines of "Gravity Falls" challenged me on the topic of Manhood. And during my early 30's, Ed Elric of "Fullmetal Alchemist" showed me what happens when you try to play the role of God in certain areas of your life. Each ... Continue Reading

sticky notes desk with computer

There is not much to this infographic like I normally do, where I draw out key points and such. But as a blogger who values desktop space, I loved this. Over the years I have tried to do desktops in a variety of situations. What I know I like personally is post-it notes everywhere as reminders, my coffee cup, and whiteboard marker within arms reach, but little more. What does your desktop look like? ...
