Elephants from Dimension X

photo © 2009 Peter | more info (via: Wylio)   If you are a thinking person who gives credence to science (there are thinking people who really do not), the empirical evidence for things is all-important.

Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blanche from Spy Films on Vimeo. I saw this on Peter Rollins site, and I was so impacted by it, I had to share it here. It is a perfect parable concerning Christ and the Church and the nature of faith in a largely ugly world. Here are my thoughts after viewing this. I […]

The grace which humbles us

“”And He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.” Deuteronomy 8:3, NASB. […]

I got this idea from reading Peter Rollins’ little book ‘The Orthodox Heretic’. Once the merchant went and sold all […]

The Theory Students

Once there was a crusty old music teacher who taught the 3rd and 4th semesters of music theory at a famous music college. As he was explaining the details of the neapolitan 6th chord to the class, one of the students, a theory major, sent a text message to one of his friends: “How will […]
