These are some notes to myself on how I would like to approach my work, at least, an ideal for who I would like to be as a Christian web developer. I write this mostly to organise my own thoughts, but I am publishing it just in case there are others who might ﬁnd it helpful.
Why would Christians watch movies at all? They are full of violence and bad language and plenty of other things we try to avoid. They are made by people who have completely diﬀerent world views than our own, and disagree with most of the beliefs we hold most dear. Why would we ﬁll our heads with all this simply for the sake of entertainment?
Why is communication so diﬃcult?
Sometimes I will talk to somebody, and think that I’m expressing myself really clearly when I’m not. I seem to make perfect sense. Yet when I hear what the other person says in response, it is obvious that they heard something quite diﬀerent from what I thought I said. What seemed so clear and easily understandable to me, is apparently quite opaque to the other person.
