Blog notes & God-talk

My folks are visiting from out of town and that has made for a sparcity of posts on this blog. That doesn't mean I haven't been reading other blogs, heh. Here's a sampling of what I found worth reading (or, at the very least, made me chuckle):

"Origin Entertainment has just launched an official web site for our feature project of A Severe Mercy. It has lots of neat pictures of Van and Davy, and also the settings of the story that give a sense of the what the look of the movie will be. . . ." Barbara Nicolosi at Church of the Masses

"I don't expect I'll be doing much blogging until the snot/brain cell ratio inside my skull goes back to normal." Elliot at Claw of the Conciliator

" 'I begin to suspect that the most common transactions of life are the most sacred channels for the spread of the heavenly leaven.' " David at Emerging in Ludlow quoting George McDonald

"Surely a 'pan-offensive' movie could be a little more inclusive." Peter Chattaway at FilmChat musing on Bill Maher’s upcoming Religuous.

"She was not being purged; she was in union with the sufferings of Christ." Scot McKnight at Jesus Creed reflecting on Mother Teresa’s struggle with darkness

"We can’t help that our society is rich with global philosophy, but we can remind ourselves that the world is made up of millions of individuals and it’s hard to dance with the entire world." April at Ordinary Attempts

" 'That, sweetheart, is what happens when you graduate from seminary.' " Questing Parson

"People were living here a long time before the time of Abram (Abraham) who was told by God that his descendants would be a blessing to all the families of the earth. Weird to think what would have happened if God had chosen someone here in Orkney rather than someone from Iraq." Tall Skinny Kiwi reflecting on his trip to Papa Westray

"He wants us to know throughout that it is not our effort that earns his presence, but our simple willingness to simply be his child in the earth." Wayne Jacobsen at LifeStream

"It's easy to be so disturbed by the degradation that is on display in Pulp Fiction that this theme is missed, and not dissimilarly its surprisingly how many of those reading Judges fail feel to feel the heaviness with which the author regards his countrymen's apostasy. Actually both find characters pulling their way to bloody salvation - both spiritually and in terms of their physical security, and the end to the threats under which they had previously been held." Matt Page at BibleFilms
