Quantum Leap Rewatch (Episodes 37-42)
Episodes (31-36)   (43-48) At some point here in the middle of the series, Quantum Leap seems to settle. It isn‘t so much addressing challenging topics of its day, but just hitting all the pet topics of its generation. Things that had already become non-i...

Light and Judgement (John 12:20-50)
The reactions to Jesus’ ministry reach the point where some Greeks seek Jesus out. It is at this point where Jesus declares that the time has come for Him to die. All along Jesus has done exactly what the Father has told Him too. That doesn’t change now,...

Reading the Coens "Barton Fink"
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 to...

Responses (John 12:1-19)
As we reach the end of Jesus’ public ministry, John gives us some summary accounts of the various responses to Jesus. Among His disciples and followers, we see four approaches to Jesus. Martha ministered to Jesus, for Jesus. This may be the most basic appr...

The Rhythm (Genesis 2:1-3)
We assume that people know that the chapter and verse designations are not original to the Biblical text. They are basically medieval attempts at outlining scripture and a way for people to find and speak about common portions of Scripture. Sort of like s...

The Tragic Irony of the Status Quo (John 11:45-57)
Throughout John’s Gospel we have seen this dual reaction to Jesus. People see the signs and hear His words and trust in Him, sometimes for all the wrong reasons, or they think He poses some sort of threat to the status quo. We don’t often see a neutral st...

"Burn the Witch" by Radiohead
One of the more insightful songs sounding a warning to culture these days is “Burn the Witch” by Radiohead. It deals with the dangers and horrors of group-think in all of its forms. And it is striking a chord, or at least generating a lot of conversation....

"Up and Up" by Coldplay
Sometimes I wish that MTV still existed the way it did in the 80s. But then I remember that is what the internet is for these days, playing music videos when you’re in the mood for such a thing. And there are some great examples of that art-form still aro...

Vomitory

Quantum Leap Rewatch (Episodes 31-36)
Episodes (25-30)   Episodes (37-42) Early on in season 2 it becomes a given that God is the one controlling Sam’s leaps around his timeline. But the other side of the spiritual conflict has not been mentioned. Here at the end of the season, Sam says that ...

"Ain't No Man" The Avett Brothers
“If you’re looking for truth, I’m proof, you’ll find it there.” With apologies to the Avett Brothers if I’m reading things into their song that they didn’t intend, I think their latest song is a perfect anthem to have on repeat this year. The basic theme of...

Quantum Leap Rewatch (Episodes 25-30)
( Episodes 19-24 ) (Episodes 31-36) At this point late in season two I am beginning to see that my memories of how this being such a strong “message oriented” show are a little off. Not that the show is not message oriented, just that the messages are ofte...
