I e-mail interviewed the founder of Apple Computers Steve Wozniak. He's not particularly religious but, does lots of good work with kids. A subject that I would have liked to delve into more with him, but over email I was only entitled to some cryptic responses. Regardless, he's a cool albeit eccentric guy. With the almost religious dedication that Mac fans have to their product (and I may soon head that way myself) I thought it wise for us to try to get inside the mind of a guy who started it all and find out a bit of what makes him tick.
Your humble blogger is Mike Hayes, a well-known expert in the world of young adult ministry (20s and 30s) in the Catholic Church. Mike is the author of Googling God (Paulist, 2007) where he explores both the chaotic world that young people live in and their religious reactions to that world. He also explores the age of instant gratification and how churches can respond to the needs of the young adult age by using technology alongside more traditional ministry methods.
Mike founded the award winning BustedHalo.com® in 2001 and continues to contribute to it as the editor of their catechetical section appropriately named Googling God.
Recently, he left BustedHalo® to focus on more direct ministry with young people at St Joseph University Parish as a Campus Minister for the South Campus at the University at Buffalo.
He has only two loves: his adorable wife, Marion and a nine pound chihuahua named Haze, who still find him amusing enough to let them live in their home.
