Ritualistic prayer vandals??

Passed some graffiti the other day that said this: Chant, chant, chant, chant, chant, chant, chant Ritualistic prayer vandals perchance?? Fascinating. Exhorted by graffiti. Don’t mind if I do. And thanks.

More on Bogside

Got an e-mail this AM from my good friend Duggan as to a better way to get a copy of the Restoration CD by the Bogtown artists in Northern Ireland. Here’s the scoop: I’ve found out a way for people to buy our CDs if they want. It is available on the Bogside Artists webpage […]

Baptist with beads

I went to visit Real Live Preacher early this morning in my insominiac lament…and was rewarded! Man, I don’t visit there enough! Any how, he has a great post about how someone gave him a set of rosary beads. He recounts how awkward (i.e. the disjointedness that comes from being a “Baptist with beads”) he […]

Finished Wright

Raeh recently asked me if I was reading N.T. Wright still and how it was soooooooooooo, I wrote this back: …I just finished N.T. Wright’s The Challenge of Jesus. Excellent stuff! I had been told about Wright’s uniqueness of perspective for years now. And while at the local library I was delighted to run across […]

Root from me

I went to open the glove compartment of my car today and the handle broke clean off. I didn’t apply any more force than normal and *snap* it just came clean off. Piece of @$%^^^&$%#@!!! As a result I got pretty angry. There have just been too many mechanical things going out of whack lately. […]
