A friend shared a diagram from a blog called “Theologygrams” which has a lot of great stuff on it. Here’s the one that was shared with me: Also don’t miss the theology topic generator. [Read more...]

Butler’s Performance

I only caught the nail-biting final half hour or so of the Butler vs. Marquette basketball game. That was because I was watching another Butler performance.
