Theology of the selfie/shelfie

Here's a sign of the times (above photo)...the groom and I are waiting for the bridal procession to start.
Of course the groom wants a "selfie."

I googled "theology of the selfie," to see who had theologized on the concept.

My favorite find was the one I was already aware of:

Tim Neufeld on the famous/infamous Obama selfie at Mandela's funeral.

The amazing Scott Jones (our young elder at third day fresno and a "pensive intellectual" spy and bibliophile) and I have recently been comparing the stack/stash of books on our (respective!) bedside nightstands. Here's my eclectic assortment..don't make fun!. (honored to tag some of the authors; Brian J Dodd,Jerry WallsAnne Marie Miller Dallas Lon Elder...oh, and notice The Wainscott Weasel) We thought it might be fun to see what anyone else's stack looks like. @Scott. post your photo, and anyone else. post theirs. Let's make it a viral meme(:..

P.S.:  See photo below; I'm apparently  a Calviminian.  Some folks wouldn't dare put these books on the same shelf/shelfie.  But I was predestined to use my free will to post this:
