I love that he's not ashamed of what he believes. 
And I love the fact that even though he's a comedian, he's definitely a prophet specially in criticizing society.

I'm not an evangelical, so I won't play the what-if game regarding evangelicals, but this article's list of what-ifs completely describe my understanding of salvation:

--------

"What if, instead of the way they view it now, evangelical Christians thought of salvation in terms of 'healing' and 'wholeness' and 'liberation'—as salvation is, in fact, primarily depicted in the Gospels?

"What if evangelical Christians thought of salvation as the reclaiming of original blessings, rather than as forgiveness for original sin?

"What if salvation was experienced as a process of growth in love, rather than as a reward for believing a particular doctrine about Jesus?"

Or indeed for a culture. As we say in Australia, "Poor feller, my country." Go well, sir.

Recommendations?

To my delight my wife has become interested in gaming.  After playing a few games with our son and daughter-in-law, she absolutely hated Pandemic and Munchkin, for two completely different reasons.  She didn't like the number of steps ahead you had to think about in order to play Pandemic well, but Munchkin required almost no thinking.

Settlers of Catan was the sweet spot for her.  She loved it, and, since it is usually just the two of us playing, we bought and have been playing Rivals for Catan for a few weeks.

What other 2-player games would you recommend we check out?

Thanks.

"Do you know the General Rules of our Church?" the bishop asked us as we stood before the Clergy Session.  "Will you keep them?" These General Rules originated in John Wesley's Methodist Societies, and one of them is a prohib...

Interesting
The arrest, so soon after the epic Paris free speech march, underscores the selectivity and fraud of this week's "free speech" parade. It also shows why those who want to criminalize the ideas they like are at least as dangerous and tyrannical as the ideas they targeted.

I just got an email targeting young clergy.  Not everybody thinks I'm an old fart.  (Just those who actually know me.)

"Even though many will claim that the story is an inerrant, infallible account of something that took place two millennia ago, the lack of rigorous adherence to the narrative’s details in nativity scenes, church plays, and movie adaptations betrays the true way people understand and treat the narrative: as a powerful myth—not in the vernacular sense of a “false belief,” but as a sacred, symbolic tale through which Christianity and many of our Christmas traditions are understood.

"Reading the text closely and critically lets us identify some of the traditions and sources that went into its creation. And like many biblical passages, it contains puzzles and questions that are difficult to answer with any certainty. Just as importantly for those with a conservative religious background, it reveals the pitfalls of forcing a literalistic interpretation on a text that is literary and theological in nature."

Exactly.
Another Christmas has come and gone, and it is a time of year when one Bible story stands out above all else—the nativity of Jesus. Despite the deep reverence Christians have for this story, many (...

I am almost finished. It is a real delight as were the others. I heard her speak at the event.

The theme of this evening's episode of Darkwood Brew is that of Calling.  I made a few comments about a Personal Calling Statement I wrote for myself in 1999, which I have used (as updated when needed) as a road map ever since.  Here is the statement, for t...
