On Becoming A MennoNerd

mennonerds1

So, several months ago, I made it a goal of mine to at least start expanding my audience. I first started to contribute to Media Diversified UK with one posts on tv shows I currently refuse to watch because of diversity concerns, the other on education reform.

Earlier this week I received word that I had been accepted into the geeky peaceable collective known as the MennoNerds. As someone who has been heavily influenced by Hauerwas’ and Yoder’s theologies, and as a lifelong anti-war/ peace thinker, I was excited.

I was just thinking the other day that the usefulness of blogging/writer networks is to keep members accountable. If anyone has seen & enjoyed Justice League: Doom (Spoiler Alert), the League asks Batman what keeps him in check. Batman responds, “The League.” I know I can go “rogue” at times and write randomly, be eclectic and incomprehensible and all that other jazz.

So I think from time to time it’s good to be reminded what I believe and why, and that where MennoNerds comes in. So yah in a way, MennoNerds is like my Justice League now.
