SDG here with a belated follow-up on my mystery photo post — and a bunch of photos. First, as I acknowledged in the combox, the two mystery photos show me in Geneva and Rome, posing with large statuary representations of John Calvin (among others) and St. Peter — an echo of my faith journey from […]

The phrase "use of meat" includes soups made from meat (no matter how you slice it). By adding "use of" they included both meat chunks […]

Welcome to Lent

Between my father's recent death and my own recent battle with a cold, I haven't posted much (thanks to Tim J and SGD, who have!), but with today being the beginning of Lent, it's appropriate for me to put up the posts relating to the Annual Lent Fight (which hasn't been so much of a […]

Actually, where I am isn't a mystery — I'm back, and said so in a combox yesterday. So the question is, where have I been for the last week? To answer that, let's play mystery photos! And to keep things fun, let's adjust the rules a little. Below are two photos of me in two […]

Reader Louise has asked in relation to this previous post; "But what about the Christian pop music, and the hat with IHS on it? Are these things bad now?

The Aesthetic Elevator discusses the problem of a ghetto-ized Christianity that cloaks its message in jargon and nomenclature, and inspires some thoughts.

SDG here. In my previous post I noted that my new review of Coraline begins with comments about something I’ve often told my children to reassure them after a bad dream. One thing I’ve said, again and again, is that the dream is all gone now and they don’t have to worry about getting back […]
