Perhaps it’s the kind of blogs I get syndicated, but I’ve now read about three nifty and geek-cred-enhancing craft projects in two days.
- Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories has an idea about making leftover electronics parts into wine glass charms.
- Marcos at Instructables makes a fabulous whisk brush out of a length of old telephone cable.
- Livejournaler Shigella knits a Dalek (if you don’t know, don’t ask) begging the question, “Can you make one tea cozy sized?”
There’s something very appealing about this inventive and whimsical kind of domesticity. Not sure what this says about theology or church administration, but there is a wry and ironic bent to people roughly my age that most churches don’t seem to get. Chutney refers to ironybrow as an alternative to high-, middle- and lowbrow culture. I think he’s on to something and that certainly does affect how churches attract and incorporate Gen X and Y leadership now and later. (But don’t bet on it being in committee.)
