Corinthian Confession

Some students in my class on Paul and the early church tried setting up a Twitter account, to tweet what the church in Corinth might have tweeted. They didn’t do much with it (at least, not yet), but even the couple of tweets that are on there are amusing. [Read more...]

Doctor Who: Dark Water

What an amazing episode of Doctor Who “Dark Water” is. It starts with Clara speaking intensely with Danny on the phone, including saying that she loves him, and emphasizing that this isn’t just the casual phrase but something deeper. And then he stops responding, and we soon learn that Danny had been hit by a car [Read More...]

Amazing Grace (to the tune of Open Arms)

When I went to see the musical “Amazing Grace” recently, I found myself thinking about the multiple tunes to which the words have been sung (the most usual tune associated with the lyrics isn’t the ‘original’ tune).

It soon became clear to me that a single review with an overview of [Read More...]

I’ve often observed that Star Wars’ symbolism seems more in line with Taoism’s ideas about balance between opposing forces, rather than depicting a Manichaean or Zoroastrian dualism of good vs. evil. And so I was pleased to find that the Taoist Yin Yang symbol had been given a Star Wars twist to it, as illustrated [Read More...]

The episode begins with Jin’s eye. We see him in his native context, as well as trying to cover up Sun when she wears a bikini on the beach. In flashbacks, we see part of a story we had seen before, but from Jin’s perspective. When he said that he does whatever Sun’s father tells [Read More...]
