This and that

Been a busy time. Robbie, one of my students was assaulted and landed in the hospital with a badly broken leg. Lot's of people have been gathering support for him now that he is home, but it has taken a great deal of potential blogging time. Pray for him. He will be on crutches for a couple of months.

Last night, my ministry held the second annual worship service in support of Pride Week. James my soon to be seminarian preached a great sermon. Too bad the church has so alienated the GLBT community that most of them stayed home.

Wouldn't it be great if church officials thought their job was to support and enable new ministries rather than to simply figure out what the problems will be and therefore try to block them?

What kind of school would make students have to work/go to class from 10:00am to 10:30pm without a single break? Guilford College apparently.

If we did not want Supreme Court justices with empathy, we could program a computer to make our rulings.

People who object to national health insurance have not looked at 1) the complete insanity of what we have now, 2) the better examples of how it works, and 3) the satisfaction rate of people even in the so-called failure countries (e.g. Britain).

Free pulpit available to anyone who can come up with a lively sermon for Trinity Sunday (June 7).

Anyone want to bet on whether I get dismissed when I go for jury duty in June? (Yes, of course I will wear my collar!)

Don't buy an Iphone right now! They are dumping their stock in anticipation of a new model in July.

Why hasn't someone in the Episcopal Church realized that, with a new Lectionary, we need new collects too (sorry for the confusions that sentence is causing the non-Episcopalians.)?

What level of stupidity must yo possess to try to text while driving?

Today is the proposed feast day for John Calvin in our new list. But you already knew that didn't you?
