Who is Jimmy?
The Jimmy Monologues were inspired by the movie Bull Durham. Jimmy was the lone Christian ball player on the Durham Bulls, a minor league baseball team. The character, cast as the geeky guy on the team who you would never figure to miss curfew, let alone act like the other guys on the team (feel free to read into that all you like). That more or less was me, though I tried my best to not be that guy from time to time. I was a catcher in the Montreal Expos organization, now the Washington Nationals, many years ago. I finished my playing days in the mid 90′s. Though I wasn’t Jimmy per say, I was more Jimmy than any of the other characters in the movie. I am a Christian, Lutheran more precisely, a lover baseball, and photography.
This is the place where you will find me discussing topics that are rather uncommon for me to discuss, say, at work. You’ll hear me use words like God, and Jesus, all in appropriate context; as there was a time that would not have been the case. This blog is me working on my faith, sharing it, discussing it, and beating up topics that are sometimes hard, and complex.
Another Blog I host
I also write another blog, the Aldercat Corner that has a focus on photography and other topics that aren’t faith based. I had several categories on that blog, but the two I wrote most about were photography, and my faith. I made the decision to split the two, so this is my newest blogging venture. I figure to post about once a week, but a lot of that is dependent on time.
One last plug
I was recently asked to participate in an interfaith blog called Homophilosophicus. Our little band of bloggers represent in some fashion, many faiths from all over the globe. It’s pretty intense sometimes, but the conversations I’ve had so far has been awesome, and I really like hanging out there when I can.
Posts with that tag here will also be found there. Jason, the moderator, is a great guy, and gets us talking about all sorts of things. He really knows his theology, and is always willing to share. I would strongly encourage you to pay the site a visit!
