I am a Presbyterian minister who also writes. I previously worked in pharmacy and education.
This blog is my sermon mill. I use it to store and share quotes and ideas. It focuses on what I’m taking from what I’m reading. I created the blog after reading Isaac Watts’ book on Logic, which says,
In order to preserve your treasure of ideas and the knowledge you have gained, pursue these advices, especially in your younger years: – 1. Recollect every day the things you have seen, or heard, or read…2. Talk over the things which you have seen, heard or learned, with some proper acquaintance…3. Commit to writing some of the most considerable improvements [i.e. applications] which you daily make, at least such hints as may well recall them again to your mind, when perhaps they are vanished and lost (1847 edition, pp. 72-73).
