A Set of Mental Pictures

Monday, October 4th, 2010

I have attempted in a vague and personal way, in a set of mental pictures rather than in a series of deductions, to state the philosophy in which I have come to believe. I will not call it my philosophy; for I did not make it. God and humanity made it; and it made me. […]

Call Me Saint Chesterton

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

I recently read on First Thoughts about a gentlemen named William Oddie, who suggested that it is perhaps time for the Church (Roman Catholic) to consider canonizing G.K. Chesterton. My immediate reaction was that if this happens, I am going to go to my priest and ask if I can retroactively make “Saint Chesterton” my […]

Me & My Stuff

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

While recently Stumbling I came across an idea where people would post a picture of themselves and beneath that they posted a picture of the stuff they typically carry around in their backpack, purse, or whatever other else one might use. I liked the idea, and so I am utterly ripping it off, but with […]

Vocalizer

Monday, May 10th, 2010

What is commonly called the voice box, and technically called the larynx, but was the term Alfalfa used when he felt the need to practice his singing prior to crooning Darla, as in “I need to warm-up my vocalizer.” Isn’t it funny what pops into your head just prior to waking up?!?

Up Yours

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

In lieu of a profound and insightful reflection on Easter I offer the following bit of “Anguished English”: The associate minister unveiled the church’s new tithing campaign slogan last Sunday: “I Upped my Pledge-Now Up Yours!” What I imagine is a bunch of postcards, or the cover of a newsletter, being sent out to parishioners […]

At This Moment

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Jesus hung on the cross, because of who I am at this moment. And, at this moment I am a son of God, because Jesus hung on the cross.

Heaven & Hell

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

So, the father of my nephew sent an email, with a bunch of humorous content, to my wife for my mom, which my wife then forwarded to me. I read it, and laughed, and decided that given the theological bent of my blog I would share one of the items in the email about heaven […]

It’s All About Me

For the persistent little narcissist within, I give you the following: Enjoy yourself!!

A Reform Trooper’s Apostolic Succession

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Jesus Christ ↓ The Apostle Paul ↓ Augustine of Hippo ↓ (Martin Luther) John Calvin ******* For those who are scratching their heads, Apostolic Succession is a doctrine among the liturgical or more ancient traditions that current bishops are able to trace the lineage of their authority and ministry through preceding generations all the way […]
