Untoward
(Poetry Scales 49 )     This place is a wholly rotten Waste of mildew and rust An untoward soil unfit to grow All save dry rot and dust Though carefully cultivated Mushrooming liberty When prerogatives Trump duty Fools embrace tyranny

Assurance in True Trust (John 10:22-42)
The Jews again try to get Jesus to plainly say that He is the Messiah. Jesus counters that He has already been clear enough with His message and the signs that He has performed. The only reason the Jews who still doubt are not seeing who He really is is b...

"Bring Forth" and the Humility of Ignorance (Genesis 1:24, 25)
There is a prevalent misconception, or impression, regarding the creation in Christian teaching these days. The assumption is that God literally “spoke” everything into existence and that that is all that happened. I think the mental image that a lot of p...

Shepherd Stories (John 10:1-21)
I see here in 10:1-18 two slightly different metaphors. Both involve shepherd imagery, and both involve clarifications about Jesus, but I don’t think they are directly about the same thing. The first comparison, in verses 1-5, is about religion and deceivi...

Reading the Coens: "O Brother Where Art Thou?"
The Coen brothers are not Christian artists, but they are masters of their craft. And, while they appear to pay close attention to every detail in their stories and use every subtlety to advance their story, like most postmodern artists, they avoid being t...

Nine Years of NonModern
Nine years are “in the books” for this blog I started as a discipline. The first year I only wrote a few times, but since then I have tried to have at least 5 cogent thoughts a week. I have explored ideas in film, television, literature and the culture ar...

"Captain America: Civil War" (2016)
The comic book event of 2006 that brought all of Marvel’s super heroes into conflict with each other was amazing for a couple reasons. It stayed true to the characters. It didn’t have to rely on anyone being possessed or hypnotized to fight each other. A...

Stream of Thought on Memory
I have this vague memory of a movie from my childhood, from back in the days when nothing came on demand and you watched whatever the limited selection of television offered. Back when commercials were a given and television was still an event. When every...

The Trust of Belief (John 9)
Compare the sixth sign in John to the third : With the sixth sign in John’s Gospel we see a trusting belief. Jesus finds a man who has been blind since birth. Jesus’ disciples question whose sin had led to the man’s suffering, his or his parents? Jesus den...

Firsts on Day Five (Genesis 1:20-23)
In a chapter of firsts, this little section on day 5 has a lot of firsts. The first of these may be more of a curiosity. Living creatures. All of the sea animals and later on the animals on dry land are described with this general term. The word in Hebre...
