Final Cut is Coming

A few days ago Tech Crunch reported that a new upgrade to Final Cut Pro is immanent. The last half year has been a little nerve-racking for those of us who use FCP day in and day out, as reports have surfaced that the team working on the Pro apps had been reassigned to work…

The Lightener of the Stars

This hymn comes from Carmina Gadelica and has been one of my favorite selections from that work. Some day I would even like to set it to music. Behold the Lightener of the stars On the crests of the clouds, And the choralists of the sky Lauding Him. Coming down with acclaim From the Father…

Counting Sheep

Last week I finished up a new series video for rezlife’s upcoming series Counting Sheep. It will be focusing on discipleship as well as the understanding that God cares for us and so we should care for others. Since the title is Counting Sheep, I wanted the video to have a somewhat dream-like quality to…

High Definition Really (Awesome.)

I decided to try my hand at some HDR pics over this weekend while Megan and I were in Wichita visiting my family. Megan and my mom made some really tasty Spring Rolls, and I thought they might make a nice subject. At any rate they were delightful. Earlier today at lunch we were all…

MAC Track Retreat Postcard

I’ve had this done for some time and have been meaning to post it- MAC (ministry as a career) Track is having a retreat, and needed a postcard to promote it. I was pretty free to do whatever I wanted with it, and there wasn’t much to go on other than the location- Tall Oaks…

Sleep Prayer

I was reading tonight through Carmina Gadelica, a book of ancient Irish prayers, songs and poetry, and came across this beautiful prayer before going to sleep. My soul on Thine own arm, O Christ, Thou the King of the City of Heaven, Thou it was who boughs’t my soul, O Jesus, Thou it was who…

New Photo Goodness

On Wednesday and Friday of last week I had the incredible opportunity to visit a few local Kansas City area churches and take some pictures of their interiors. There is definitely some beautiful architecture and religious artwork in Kansas City, and so I thought I would share. This first group is from Our Lady of…

Poiesis: Winter

A new poem in honor (and indictment) of cold and frosty Kansas nights. Winter whetted, cold as polished blade reflects the faintest gleam of light so locked in frost and bound in ice does languish here, this frozen night her well-worn gaze neath waning moon in vain to catch her lover’s eyes who on the…

Lights! Camera! Action!

This last week I finished up a new piece for rezlife’s upcoming series, Lights! Camera! Action! I generally do animation for the videos I create, but wanted to go a bit of a different direction with this one. About a week prior Megan and I had purchased a 50mm lens for our Canon T2i, and…

Ad Te Levavi

Ad te levavi is an introit sung during the first Sunday of Advent. As the church cycle begins, a song of hope and reliance of God is lifted to the heavens, this cry for help and deliverance forming the structure of all that is to come, a musical anticipation of Christ’s advent and the salvation…

Revolution

A year ago today my life changed in the most incredible way possible- I married the love of my life! Megan is the most amazing girl I have ever known, and I find myself having to use superlatives in nearly every description of her because of the paltry ability of words to communicate what cannot…

Nelson-Atkins Photo Shoot

Today Megan and I headed down to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO. It has become one of our favorite spots to walk around, get some exercise, and take in some great artwork and photography. I didn’t realize until today that you could actually take photos inside as long as you keep…

Dancing With Devils

Two weeks ago at our small group we began a study of the Gospel of Mark. As we were reading, we got to the story in Mark 1:21-28 where Jesus is teaching in the synagogue and casts out the unclean spirit in the man who begins making a ruckus. But Mark tells it better than…

Sitivit Anima Mea

This antiphon was composed by Frei Manuel Cardoso for use during the Matins of the Dead. (Matins is the first canonical hour, occurring at sunrise.) Sitivit anima mea (‘my soul has thirsted’) comes from Psalm 42, and the text is as follows: Sitivit anima mea ad Deum fortem vivum, Quando veniam et apparebo ante faciem…
