My name is Gary. I like to read the Bible, and sometimes I blog about spirituality, worship, life, kittens, sacking groceries at Kroger, indexing mortgages and wills, computer programming, theology, woodworking, and Greek grammar.

My blog’s title, κατὰ σκοπὸν διώκω, is the Greek for “I relentlessly pursue,” which is the first part of Philippians 3:14. Paul worked like hell to work his way to heaven — or at least to a prominent place among the followers of Judaism on earth — and in Philippians 3, he shows the folly of such relentless pursuit of the wrong things. Now, Paul did not give up the art of relentless pursuit; he changed the object of his pursuit from what was unattainable to what was attainable: the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus. Not that he had attained it, but he runs toward it like a moth to flame.

And it is the simplicity involved in his change of heart that I seek to emulate. Those three words, κατὰ σκοπὸν διώκω, resonate with how I hope to live my life. Feel free to join in conversation with me.

The above was written in December 2009. Now in February 2013, I am revamping this blog. Maybe.
