visiting another pastor

Well, it's thanksgiving weekend in Canada coming up, and we've driven all the way from Saint John, NB, to Toronto. I'm exhausted, and once again have suddenly developed a love/hate relationship with cars. I'm glad to be out of it now. I'm at my younger brother John's house. We're about to crack a brew and do some catching up, him being a pastor himself!! Stay tuned tomorrow for another cartoom! … [Read more...]

don’t get behind on your evangelism!

I found this on the web on another blogger's site who was also satirizing it and couldn't resist posting it. No, I'm not going to buy a pair for my daughter! She'd be embarassed to wear them. Personally I think it's a bummer that people have to resort to this kind of crap! This deserves some kind of reward! Maybe I'll start, instead of the Darwin Awards, the Judas Awards for Christian nonsense. … [Read more...]
