I “refresh” the email Inbox (is there some new news to be unlocked from the ever-updating oracle of the Internet?).  I check on the dashboard of my blog (do I dare allow my eyes to move to the WordPress chart that tells me the number of visits per day?).  I go to Amazon to see where my book ranks (45,256 or 231,970?). I go to The Ooze where I have a published  article (did anyone post a comment to my piece?).

All this clicking.  All this sick self-worth hanging on info to be revealed on the screen of my laptop.  What is this doing to my soul (or revealing about my soul)?

…And how does this affect theological discourse online?

Joel is going to be writing a post on this soon… I am eager to read it!
