When the substance was first washed away by a custodian, the red substance returned. People are calling it a miracle. Various theories have emerged as to why the statue is weeping. I […]

Karl's cat

Several years ago I struck up a friendship with a fellow named Karl who told me that he was an atheist. We had many wonderful and frank conversations in which he had many questions and criticisms of the Christian faith. I tried to answer to them the best of my knowledge. But when I didn’t […]

Light in the darkness

This weekend/Thanksgiving day holiday has been good but it has flown by…which typifies the season that we are entering. For Advent begins today. And as I was rushing about these past few days…one of those days I passed the lake at night. And shining in the midst of the lake someone had decorated a boat […]

Give thanks

Today is Thanksgiving…and there is much indeed to be thankful for. I have chosen Psalm 106 to read as the invocation and proclamation before the meal’s grace. It is a song of thanksgiving written by David. Here’s what I’m planning to read: 1Hallelujah! Thank GOD! And why? Because he’s good, because his love lasts. 2But […]

a little diddy

Wrote this today: Deeper into life I go, I accept the fullness of it. The sweetness of joyous times. The bitter pain of hardships. All of it together, mixed up in one great draught. I will drink deeply of it. Swirling chaos and tidy order. I’ll place my feet across it, A man from two […]

Point of faith

There is a really great scene in one of the Firefly episodes. The Preacher happens upon River, the Savant with latent Psi powers who is tearing out pages of his Bible. She is frustrated and mutters rapidly something like “how could Noah fit all those animals on such a small craft?! There are over 550 […]

Jesus as Green Man

By way of our good friend Durin, I happened upon an article called Jesus as the Green Man of the Bible. The article is essentially the typed out transcript from a fellow who is an Anglican Priest who spoke at a Pagan conference of some kind. Essentially, the article attempts to find equal ground between […]

Black Hole

I was listening to NPR today and happened upon an interview with Charles Burns, the author/artist of graphic novel that came out recently. The book is called Black Hole which tells the story of a handful of teenagers in 1970s Seattle. Burns told how he wanted to capture the struggle of these teenagers trying to […]
