  1. I really love the name of that company. “Ex Nihilo” is Latin for “From nothing”. Interesting when you’re a graphics company designing new stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ very cool.

    • I believe it’s both a reference to that and a reference to the Genesis 1-3 account of God creating the earth out of nothing (ex nihilo) as oppoed to by evolution. Since I agree with them that Genesis 1-3 is historically and scientifically accurate, I love it for that meaning as well!

      • Indeed ๐Ÿ™‚ you could tie 2 Corinthians 5:17 in there as well, about those in Christ being a “new creation” – sort of only works if you know the Genesis “Creatio ex nihilo” connection too, but I love it ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Great point! That’s what’s genius about the name, I think. It makes sense on the surface, but if you know your Bible, there’s all sorts of extra significance.

  2. They are also the team behind our web page, which has improved greatly since they took over. I love the way they think. I am looking forward to seeing how they progress In the future. Lynns chronicles is a site that everyone should visit. It is a perfect compliment to your site Daniel.

    • You’re actually right. I do think of their site as a really nice complement. There’s very little overlap between what I do and what Lynn does; for example, she does a lot of concert reviews and very few news stories, while I do several news stories a week and don’t do concert reviews.

      • I thought Pat meant that the purpose of her site was to say good things about your site! I was thinking, “Man, I should find a site to do that for me.” ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I’m pretty sure he meant complement with an e as opposed to compliment with an i, so I answered accordingly. ๐Ÿ™‚

        By the way, I say good things about your site! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Appreciated. Check’s in the mail. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sorry. Being from Alabama, the only thing I can spell is Roll Tide!!

    • No problem. ๐Ÿ™‚

      If someone can spell the opening part to the all-time greatest Kingsmen album, that’s a great start. I’ve been told that there’s also a sports-related connection of some sort, but as far as I’m concerned, that’s a distant second in significance to its Southern Gospel significance. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I love the way the crowd responds when they hit “Tide” on that recording.

  4. Hey Daniel – Thanks for the mention! We are excited to see where this will go. Love that you and Robert picked up on the significance of the company name. It turns in to quite the conversation piece when I am out and about. ๐Ÿ™‚ What I love about it is the complexity of the name, there literally seems to be no end to the the application to our lives as Believers as well as in reference to the graphics and design that we do. I have some fun stories from NQC and conversations we have had there! LOL

    • Neat! It would be cool to hear those stories one of these days!
