The Christian God is the Lord of peace, life, and comfort. Early Christians were pacifists and refused to take up arms. What did they know about the relationship between weapons, Empire, power, violence, and Evil that could guide us today?

If my “hobby” were used by unstable, sick people in acts of terrorism and death, I think I would reevaluate my involvement in it.

Nota bene: I currently don’t vote Republican, either. • I’m just saying it would be great to have a party I could vote for without ethical dilemmas. At the present moment, I think it would be a shorter walk for the Democrats to reach a life-affirming political ethic.

You know, if Democrats would take a fully pro-life stance — anti-abortion, anti-death penalty, anti-war — they might just get some good Christians to switch their vote. I know I’d vote solidly Democratic if I didn’t have to contend with ethical implications of supporting murder.

My tricky toddler found out how to extend bed time. Me (at door): “Night, night. Daddy loves you.” Rosemary (with a devious smile): “Daddy, where’s God?”

Seriously was a good conversation. Just don’t get why these questions only come at bedtime. 😀

I’m so tired of having things spoiled. I’m muting “leak” and “leaks” so I can keep some excitement in my life.

Anyone in Anglican Internet know where you can get PDFs of CoE House of Bishops statements? I’ve found a few, but it seems like something that should be in one place somewhere. Having trouble finding the below, for example.

My kingdom for a Bible site that exports selections without verse number and footnotes…

I’m preaching Mark 7 and Isaiah 29 tomorrow in jail. They’re going to get some Lutheran law & gospel with a good dose of Methodist heart religion and some sacramental theology to boot. Man, I love being Anglican!
