    • I can’t tell you how happy I am that you guys made a theater arm!!! You guys just get better and better! <3

      How great! I was so incredibly happy to read these news!
      Sometimes I missed theatre among all these other art forms in talkings in the Rabbit Room. But suddenly the rabbit scampers around the corner and jumps straight into the spotlight… Wonderful!

    • “But this much is true: Our God-given hunger for a beautiful, well-ordered world touches every area of human endeavor. …And I trust that my code, like my poetry, echoes God’s Word that called His good world out of the formless void.”

      Beautiful. Thank you for this.

    • This is beautiful. It resonates with what I have been reading recently in The Practice of the Presence of God: that every task we do can be done for and with the love of God. Finding the beauty and poetry of code is a wonderful way of participating in God’s good work through your own work.

    • !!! How wonderful this is. Thank you, Micah.

    • I loved this Micah!! Thanks so much for sharing this. I love your poetry too!

    • It is so encouraging to hear a fellow programmer/poet put these words out there. I often feel as though the work I do juxtaposes my creative expression (and I’d still argue there are aspects of it that do), but you’ve beautifully highlighted the large space where they overlap. This perspective is invaluable in the busy work world. Thank you so much for this post and the encouragement!

    • I love this! So often people talk about STEM disciplines and the arts as though they’re at odds with one another, or at best like they’re separate and non-overlapping magisteria. But you do a great job of highlighting the similarities and harmonies between your code-writing and your poetry, and it was a joy to read about it. There’s beauty and creativity in everything, if our eyes are open to see it.

    • I’ve never thought about coding like this! As a lover and writer of poetry, I’ve always associated math, STEM, etc. with robotic thinking and systems that I could never wrap my brain around. After a year and a half of dating my partner (a math major but also fellow artist and enneagram 4) I’ve found that there is so much more to “math stuff” than meets the eye. I love this fresh perspective. Also, for me at least, I constantly forget how foundational math is in music. And everything else. Math is EVERYWHERE! Wild.

    • I’m so sorry. Praying that closing prayer with you all.

    • Fr. Thomas played an important role in my spiritual journey. I never personally knew him, but I’m thankful that God gave him to us for a while. Memory eternal.

    • Goodness, Pete, what a powerful remembrance. I’m praying for you and all who loved him. Thank you for sharing your love for him with us.

    • My heart aches for this deep loss for all who loved him. Praying for peace and comfort and that God will surround you all with His grace in unmistakable and tangible ways. Yearning for heaven when death and loss will be no more.
       

    • this is so very sad. I was very blessed to attend one of Father McKenzie’s church services while I attended Hutchmoot one year and I loved watching his commentaries on movies and listing to his talks. One of my very first things I listened to on the Hutchmoot talks was one by Father McKenzie! It was on the resurrection and it opened my eyes that we will be as Christ is in the Resurrected body. 
      He will be missed, but praise God that this is only for a short reprieve, for we will see him again.
