An accidental blog

"If God is sovereign, then his lordship must extend over all of life, and it cannot be restricted to the walls of the church or within the Christian orbit." Abraham Kuyper Common Grace 1.1.

All of life redeemed website update

I have recently updated some of the pages on the all of life redeemed website.

Several of Roy Clouser's articles have been added; these include: 'Descartes and Heisenberg' and 'Divine accomodation'. Several articles on higher education by the Australian sociologists Bruce Weare have been added; and an article by Richard Russell entitled 'In defence of Dooyeweerd' as well as some diagrams illustrating aspects of Dooyeweerd's work has been added to the Richard Russell pages.

Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005)

French philosopher Paul Ricoeur died on Friday.

There are obituaries here, here, here, and here.

Stafrænn Hákon's Ventill/Poki

I have recently obtained Stafrænn Hákon's Ventill/Poki from Resonant records. The CD is superb - atmospheric, spine chillingly wonderful. Resonant records delivered it within a few days and at an excellent price: faster and cheaper than amazon.

Another CD I'm hoping to get soon is Trio by Wasilewski, Kurkiewicz and Miskiewicz on ECM. There's a review here and an mp3 here on 'The suburbs are killing us' blog (but it won't be there for long)!

'World view' quiz

I came across this quiz at Summer's blog and tried it myself:

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably
the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker
who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if
there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual,
even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

Stafraenn Hakon

Every so often I come across a CD or piece music that blows my mind. Last year it was Arvo Part's Alina and E.S.T's Seven Days of Falling. My latest 'find' is Icelandic Stafrænn Hákon (aka Olafur Josephsson).

Have a listen to the track Kjammi - it blew my mind, so ethereal, so atmospheric, words can't describe how good it is - I've listened to the mp3 of it loads of times and each time it sends a shiver down my spine! I've just ordered his Ventill/Poki CD from Resonant records .

I can't wait to hear it!
