Come Join The Fun

Christian Piatt shared the above example of poor Bible camp sign placement in a recent post, which was mostly a collection of inappropriate church signs full of double entendre. One can explore the mixed message in the sign above on multiple levels. Many churches seem to be lifeless. Often our activities are not fun, even [Read More...]

Mr. Putin Goes to Church

On Tuesday, Nadieszda Kizenko, Patrick Michelson, and Paul Valliere spoke at Butler about religion and freedom of expression in Russia, focusing on the now famous case of the punk band Pussy Riot and their “Punk Prayer” video that got so much attention on Facebook. The video of the lecture is now available, and I want to [Read More...]

David Hayward has created another thought-provoking cartoon. It illustrates the difficulties inherent in speaking about God. God, as the ultimate reality, transcends our understanding. For that very reason, those who desire certainty regularly fall prey to those who offer them substitutes, the less than ultimate, who claim to being God closer to them and to [Read More...]

How Christmas Shopping is Like Going to Church

David Hayward shared this cartoon: I think it is hilarious. But it makes some serious points. The oddity of giving people a certain time and saying that this will be “fellowship” time or “worship” is distinctly odd, and that oddity is only missed when we have be ome accustomed to this way of doing things.
