• This past weekend my friend Heidi Johnston and I led a session at the Rabbit Room’s Hutchmoot UK in Oxford, England. Our topic was delight and the writer.

    The things you delight in are a clue to what you o […]

  • Today, with a mixture of sadness and joy, we announce that Drew Miller is stepping away from his position as Content Developer for the Rabbit Room. Our sadness is the natural result of waving goodbye to a […]

    • Thank you for all your hard work and creativity, Drew! I hope whatever your next adventure is will be fulfilling and fruitful. But I also hope that you will not disappear entirely, because you have made the Rabbit Room a much richer place with your involvement.

    • Drew Miller, you’re a gifted editor, producer, songwriter, and musician.  I’m grateful for all you’ve done, caring for our dearly beloved rabbity folk. May the Lord bless you and may he keep you, may the Lord make his face shine upon you, and may the Lord give you his perfect peace.

    • Thanks for all your work here, Drew. I’ll miss your RR contributions (though maybe there will be surprises?), but am confident that whatever comes next will be great 🙂

  • For the first half of my life, there was the sacred and there was the secular, and never the twain shall meet. I may not have heard this directly from the pulpit, but I definitely saw it lived out in the […]

    • Thanks for sharing your travels along the Camino, appreciate hearing stories like this. I once spent part of a year in Spain, in Burgos, involved in a discipleship program and short term mission.

  • It’s been a long time coming, but today I finally get to unveil the Rabbit Room’s newest program: Rabbit Room Theatre. And on June 30th, 2022, we will launch headlong into our fresh, newly-imagined production […]

  • April is upon us, my rabbity friends. And boy, do poets love to start long poems by mentioning this month! In the opening of The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot writes:

    April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out […]

  • In college I had a housemate who was a DJ at a Christian radio station. He believed (and freely admitted) that the music he played at the radio station was mostly a watered down imitation of the pop and rock […]

  • A few years ago at Hutchmoot, Pete Peterson said something that has been enriching the leaf-mould of my mind ever since. Quoting Walt Wangerin, Jr., Pete talked about how the Sanskrit word cinoti “makes of the p […]

    • “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.

  • It was the 26th of December, the second day of Christmas by the traditional reckoning, and I’d spent the balance of it on the couch, nursing the cold I’d sustained thanks to late nights and early mornings and run […]

  • I’m feeling a little lost these days, as though I’ve awakened from a troubling dream to find that nothing is where it was or as it was. I’ve entered my forties during a nationwide cultural and religious shift […]

    • Thank you, Helena. Beautiful and powerful (you and this piece). Also, “The love of God is infinite and fathomless and it will kill me. It’s the kind of fear you don’t acknowledge on a Sunday morning.” rocked me. Yeah to all that. Keep exploring, thanks for sharing as you map it out. 

    • Oh my….. thank you Helena for taking us on the journey with you into uncharted seas. Beautiful and pensive both and an echo for me just this morning as I pondered the word ‘surface’, as in, what lies below is more real than what we see.

    • Beautiful imagery.

    • I love this so much.

    • Thank you for this, Helena. Your courage and honesty give other people courage.

    • Thank you dearly for this; it was very encouraging to another soul who’s found himself in a long period of uncertainty.
      This Pilgrim Way was my favorite album in the year I discovered it—2009, I think? It’s fallen off my radar the last few years. Looks like it’s time to give it another listen (or 20).

    • Thank you for, in beautiful and brave vulnerability, creating space for others to also find the courage to push deeper into Infinite Love’s Welcome.
