…but it’s time to go.

The new site over at posterous is much cleaner on your end, and more customizable on mine. I think we’ll both be happier there.

So, as of now, Darnellia is becoming Adamic. Come along for the ride, and please update your bookmarks and subscribe to the new feed.

Thanks for reading, and I look forward to seeing you at the new place.



My friend Kelsey took this picture of downtown Nashville today from the footbridge that crosses the Cumberland River connecting downtown and the Tennessee Titans’ stadium.

I went to college at Belmont University in Nashville, met my wife in Nashville, more deeply learned to believe and live the gospel of Jesus Christ in Nashville, and made many lifelong friends in Nashville.

Many folks are displaced, and though the rain has subsided, the worst is probably yet to come as a clearer picture of the damage emerges.

Please pray for the city. Particularly those who’ve lost loved ones and those who’ll be staying in shelters for an indefinite period of time only to return damaged homes. Pray that the churches there would manifest and proclaim Christ to the untold hurting ones around them.


The telephone was an aberation in human development. It was a 70 year or so period where for some reason humans decided it was socially acceptable to ring a loud bell in someone else’s life and they were expected to come running, like dogs. . . . We have a thing now called THE TEXT MESSAGE.

I’m now a few apps shorter on my phone. It’s a small step.

It’s a prayer list. People share, you know how to pray. Even if they’re not asking.

Help me test the theory.

The object of regeneration . . . is to manifest in the life of believers a harmony and agreement between God’s righteousness and their obedience, and thus to confirm the adoption that they have received as sons [Eph 1:5; Gal 4:5; cf. 2 Pet 1:10]. -John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 3.6.1

Plot summary: The world is covered in pollen. Homes are covered—inside and out—with a yellow-green caking. Then Apple genetically engineers nano-insects to clear the streets. But then they mutate, becoming the size of a Smart Car due to the huge amount of available food. Once the streets are cleared, they have to come inside to feed. They’ll eat whatever pollen they can find now. Even the little bit that gathers on the iPad by your pillow while you sleep…
