The Ziklag Almost Daily Dec. 27
Beauty, Wisdom and Grace
Back at it today, with Ziklag looking to be a nightcap rather than an espresso blast. Indeed, the day is too full to have it all done by 9am.
Christmas packages are opened on the 26th in our home, and the 27th is a pseudo-holiday. We enjoyed our local midweek matins service at SP815.org, and I replaced an afternoon full of work with a long nap.
With Dark Shore now searchable in the IRS index of not-for-profits (Alleluia!), the turn of the year brings with it big new horizons. I want it all at once, and I want to write about it here so that you want it too. But I also want to walk with my God rather than run in the rat race. I want to trust that his plans are coming to pass as surely as the sun keeps rising. I want to know that Ziklag never has to be more than my own notes on retreat for it to be a city of refuge for us all.

Christian conversion is not hard. Not if by hard you mean “complex.”
Understanding is hard. Faith is simple.
📐🦊Almost Daily Smarts
The pioneer of the Smart Note concepts, Nicolaus Luhman, was one of the most prolific writers of the twentieth century. Sonic Ahrens did the world an enormous favor when he applied Smart Noting to writing a book about Smart Noting for students and scholars. It is my hope that my work with Smart Noting one day stands upon their shoulders an a further advancement, taking the principles from the classroom to enhancing the much more profound everyday life and action of us peoples’ lives.

Your enemy’s hatred makes him hasty. He will lash out at your shadow. This is your advantage. But it is possible to cast too broad a shadow. 1:20-21
