Great post!  This issue is something I've thought about a lot the past few years.  The pharisaical tendency to be completely negative about religion is really destructive, both to oneself and to others.  Good is a positive reality, whereas evil is a lack of good.  If we treat evil as a positive reality, we're already setting ourselves up for failure. (I'm not sure that's all philosophically sound, strictly speaking, but I hope it gets the point across anyhow).

The quote from Longfellow is great, too.

Ria defending her thesis! Ria successfully defended her senior thesis on Salvation History as the exemplar cause of every story. Wish I could have been there! Gus obligingly sent this picture. :)

Singing "The Lord's My Shepherd" with some of the munchkins, circa 2005. Somehow I recently realized that I've never really done a lot of blogging about music, which has always been a big part of our family's life. I thought ...

I first encountered Gretchen's writing in Real Simple magazine in about 2010, where she made a really useful distinction that really struck a chord with me: There are two types of decision makers. Satisficers... make a decis...
