Using a meme to introduce Jim

I grew up in the Muncie branch of the People of Praise. A fixture in that branch and my life has always been the Schenkels. Rosanne was the office secretary at St. Mary Elementary through my years there, and Jim has just always been around poking me in the ribs and never giving me a chance to see his face without a smile on it. While I don't see much of them these days, each time I do it's richer and richer, as I'm coming to appreciate what they've chosen for their lives more and more. I work with Jeremy, and when Jim was in visiting for a recent leaders conference, and he discovered that Jeremy had written the first website for the People of Praise, he instantly went down on one knee and made the sign of the cross to Jeremy. :) I felt honored to be witness to that honoring. :)

I just got a blog comment from Jim telling me that he had linked to me and wanted to pass a meme along to me. As a viral form of blogging, I don't participate in them that much, but now after having seen the flurry of writing that Jim is posting, which is really inspirational stuff, I decided that I want to spread his name and figured the meme would be a good excuse to. :) Pretty cool to have another brother/father online and presenting his life to me and others despite that I'm now hours away from him!


  1. Do you attend the Traditional Latin Mass or the Novus Ordo? Novus Ordo - I love both, but do not get much opportunity to participate in the Latin Mass.

  2. If you attend the TLM, how far do you drive to get there? Not sure where the nearest one is, I'd like to look into it.

  3. If you had to apply a Catholic label to yourself, what would it be? I have no idea. I really love all the parts of our body. If I did have to label where I differ from both conservative and liberal Catholics would be that I also bear the "charismatic" label. But I consider myself conservative and liberal in ways, and am a cradle Catholic but that does not provide any useful understanding, as it can mean anything about a person.

  4. Are you a comment junkie? Only when I'm procrastinating.

  5. Do you go back to read the comments on the blogs you’ve commented on? Definitely, gotta keep the conversation alive.

  6. Have you ever left an anonymous comment on another blog? Not intentionally.

  7. Which blogroll would you most like to be on? God's. :-P

  8. Which blog is the first one you check? The subfolder containing new posts by people that I personally know. My "friends" folder.

  9. Have you met any other bloggers in person? This is gradually becoming a pretty useless question. By now most people know at least one blogger if not many. Blogging is quickly becoming laicized. :)

  10. What are you reading? Wisdom of Solomon, The Divine Milieu, Mere Christianity, The Everlasting Man, Google Data API, Fedora Directory Server Documentation
