To follow or not to follow - Wednesday, November 13th 2013 21:37

Celestial Flamethrowers - Friday, November 8th 2013 21:25

Who is the Greatest? - Wednesday, November 6th 2013 23:37
My first blog entry on the new computer. There is still much that I don’t know about this machine, but I’m beginning to find my way around. I shall reserve any further...
Confessions of a File Hoarder - Friday, November 1st 2013 23:55

The Greatness of God - Thursday, October 3rd 2013 22:51
I finished putting primer on the garage today. Why no pictures? you ask. Because I was too pooped to go back out there with a camera when I was done. Maybe I'll insert one...
The Transfiguration - Wednesday, October 2nd 2013 20:28
Tonight's blog entry is coming to you after a few challenging days, having had some medical tests and undergoing the preparation for them. Things went well, and all the...
The Cross of Exclusivity - Thursday, September 26th 2013 21:44
Another perfect day for working on things outside here in Smalltown, USA. You can tell that you're not, say, on the East Coast just by looking at the vehicles on our street....
... until they see the kingdom of God - Wednesday, September 25th 2013 21:40
The third absolutely perfect day in a row. Okay, I know I'm being inconsistent. I have said many times that the word "absolute" is usually totally superfluous unless you're...
The Son of Man - Monday, September 23rd 2013 16:53
I’m not at a point at the moment where personal narrations and reflections come easily, so we shall immediately go to our passage. For that matter, these observations are...
Just a Few Things - Saturday, September 14th 2013 20:20

I promised you a huge announcement for tonight. Here it is: It's been four years in the making ... and not yet quite done. It is the product of several trips to Asia and many...
Train whistles from the tunnel. - Thursday, September 5th 2013 21:33
I guess if I have called other entries in periods of sporadic blogging "Chips from the Workshop" (borrowing from Max Müller), then this one might come under some heading like...
Bread and Fish for All! - Thursday, August 22nd 2013 22:36
Even apart from today's revisionary school schedules, for those of us whose lives are forever encoded by academic time structure, summer is beginning to come to an end. The...
This Sunday's Entry - Sunday, August 18th 2013 22:44
(Please note that I posted two entries today, and that it might make more sense if you read the previous one first.)Before anything else, let me thank everyone for the many,...
Last Sunday's Entry - Sunday, August 18th 2013 16:29
A second entry, officially designated for today, is now posted as well. This one comes logically and in a way chronologically first.As a matter of fact, I did have an entry...
The Mission - Wednesday, August 7th 2013 23:26
So, there we were in our 2004 Dodge Dakota on SR 1000, aka "Bethel Pike," a two-lane country road heading south-east towards Muncie. (To clarify for any readers from...
A Study in Faith - Tuesday, August 6th 2013 23:16
Since I don't know whether "Mystery Friend" does Facebook or not, let me repeat here my expression of thanks for the unexpected and very helpful gift. June and I thank the...

Some Grumpy Comments and Jesus in the Boat - Saturday, August 3rd 2013 23:23
There is nothing new in what I'm about to write here, but every once in a while the incivility of the internet still gets to me. (Obviously this post is a reaction to some...

The Ophel Inscription - Wednesday, July 31st 2013 22:51
I'm going to spare you another blog entry dealing with my frustrations in the aftermath of "Doctor's Week." Nobody is calling back with the promised referral appointments,...
Blue Potatoes and Red Black Raspberries - Saturday, July 27th 2013 23:36
Well, "Doctor's Week" is over---sort of---and I'm glad it's done. I hope that I won't have so many appointments all bunched together again in the near future. Still, there are...
