Shepherds - Saturday, October 20th 2012 19:30
There's no question about it. Once more fall is here, and the weather is sliding down fast on my approval list. I can sympathize with the ancient people who created myths...
On the Way to Bethlehem - Thursday, October 18th 2012 21:05

Luke 2: The Historical Setting - Thursday, October 18th 2012 1:03

John the Baptist - Monday, October 15th 2012 23:24
My delight that yesterday's migraine was so short-lived did not last too long. By the morning, the headache had returned full force. That's why for men these things are...

God's Beautiful Creation - Thursday, October 11th 2012 22:00

Miracles: Finally a Lengthy Response to Carrier - Tuesday, October 9th 2012 17:17
Caution: Long Paper!I decided that I might as well finish at least one topic that I broached Sunday night. I alluded to the folks at “infidels.org” having kanipshins over...
Luke: History and Miracles - Sunday, October 7th 2012 23:24
We'll try to make up for the lack of Luke in the last blog entry by devoting this entire post to him. Actually, that's not entirely true. What I need to do is to address some...
Benghazi-gate - Friday, October 5th 2012 23:42

Beginning a Study of Luke - Monday, October 1st 2012 17:50
Some people say that when you're expecting lab results and the like, the worst thing about it is waiting. I agree for the most part, though I must make an exception. Having...
Quick report with little firm content. - Saturday, September 29th 2012 3:19
This is just a quick note to keep ayone up-to-date who has not seen the announcement I made on Facebook. June had her biopsy this morning. The extracted material has, of...
Around Home, Caruso, and Poison Ivy - Tuesday, September 25th 2012 0:00
Poison Ivy, etc. It occurred to me that in all of these years I may never have posted a view from the southern window of my office at home. The other day, it so happened that...
Did Jesus have a wife? - Thursday, September 20th 2012 1:02
Mostly about Wives As mentioned the other day, June had a mammogram and ultrasound on Tuesday. This afternoon (Wednesday) she got the phone call that it's once again time for...
