Captain Spectrum (Alexander Carpenter)

If it's a contemporary issue, and it has to do with Adventism, Alexander Carpenter has probably written about it. Carpenter is a blogger extraordinaire for Spectrum Magazine. In fact the burgeoning Adventist blogosphere owes at least some of its success to his prolific posting on the Spectrum blog for the past year-and-a-half, or something like that. His rallying cry is "community through conversation", and consequently, Spectrum invites a broad range of Adventist (and non-Adventist) views. While the blog itself leans toward the left-of-center side of the Spectrum, views across the ideological continuum may find a voice there.

Alexander also attends Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, where he is pursuing an M.A. degree. He spends his spare time with Interfaith Power and Light and the Regeneration Project, offering a uniquely religious response to environmental crises, and particularly climate change.
Evidently (I just found this out) Alex Carpenter is also part of the faculty at Pacific Union College. Cool!

And word on the street is that Mr. Carpenter looks great in a leotard and cape!

It would be an honor to be a caricature. My blog is adventistperspective. I hope I qualify. My stuff is regularly posted on Reinventing the Adventist Wheel and Spectrum.

There should be enough full length real pictures of me for you to play with if you check out my humor category. I'm the guy in the Hawaiian shirt. Really impressed by your stuff!
