Golden thread

It’s 12:18 am according the computer clock.  Can’t sleep.  So I thought I might tool around cyber’dom for a while.  So I’m just checking in. All the spiritual insights I get seem to titrate down to BIG GOD: little me.  Or, if you like, He is the vine, I am branches.  That sort of thing.  Never understimate the power […]

Suddenly labyrinth!

Btw, last weekend when I went to the Roman Catholic Church service I discovered that they have a REALLY nice labyrinth. It is a replica of the one that is in Chartres (?), France. And it is open to the public from 7 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week! And the church is […]

Saw it

I saw Wall-E last night with the kids.  And I knew it would be good.  But…WOW…was it ever good!  Yes, the animation was good.  Yes the cute robots were endearing.  Yes the story was clever, and funny in parts.  But what surprised me was it actually carried a really profound message.  I won’t ruin the […]

Grace and Mercy

I was listening to some scripture on CD this weekend.  And I happened to catch the end of a famous scripture that struck me.  It was the popular “throne of grace” passage from Hebrews 4 (NLT) that says: 14 So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, […]

N.T.Wright on The Colbert Report

Did anyone catch N.T. Wright on the Colbert Report???  It was fantastic.  Steven was actually very respectful and Bishop Wright was actually pretty funny!  In the interview Wright discusses his new book about heaven, the resurrection and more.  If you didn’t catch it go here as soon as possible, scroll down and catch this excellent […]

Spirit train ride

My train ride was strange this morning.  First, a young woman fainted several seats away from me.  I didn’t see it as I usually have my nose in a book.  Her sister started screaming which unsettled the whole car.  It’s interesting how people responded.  Most folk generally didn’t want to get involved.  However a few people […]

Tony and Trucker Frank on the road

If you haven’t seen any of the road trip sequences with Tony Jones and Trucker Frank…I highly recommend it.  Here’s a really good one.  There’s a fantastic conversation that goes on about how people who are astranged from God still need him…and how they long to be engaged and listened to in dialogue.  One self […]

Movies galore!

Did I tell Y’all that I saw Indy 4?  I really enjoyed it.  My general rule of thumb is take the conclusions of critics with a grain of salt.  Several of the reviews that I read concluded that it was very ho-hum and going through the expected motions.  But I didn’t feel that it was […]

The Mountains of God

Coming back from Montana gave me an overall message. A reminder if you will. A reminder that the deep mountains of Montana are somewhat like pressing into God. Again, I had the to desire to drive deep into those mountains and explore. Not to forsake all that I am called to out in the broken […]
