My friends have had the good fortune of seeing the risen Christ. I’m Thomas, probably off doing something very [Read More...]

I’ve been intentionally quiet the last few days. Perhaps my lack of an immediate, definitive and public reaction in the wake of last Friday’s news marks my lack of qualification as a blogger.

The Bible: Why I’ll Be Watching the Burnett/Downey Miniseries

I’m not usually a huge television watcher, but there is one show that’s a “don’t miss” for me: Survivor. I’ve daydreamed about getting voted off the island for years and even have my strategy all worked out for floating under the radar to ensure myself a jury position.
