    “Hope in the midst of despair”

    Nice piece about Michael Spencer written by Mike Bell linked by Michael Newnham in Linkathon between articles from Pastor Mike and Mike Ehrmantrout. I’m seeing a pattern here. 🙂

    Michael JoelG commented at 10:51 and Dan’s confused why you dragged him into my bad joke. lol

    This is what happens when I try to tell a joke in real life too. lol

    Well said Kate……..

    Lent has a way of bringing our humanity back in proper focus.

  10. Speaking of the war on Easter, here’s an interesting post on the origins of the English word and atheist attempts to link it to Ishtar and paganism. A bit long, but interesting. Non- political.

    This reminds me of discussions I ran into on Usenet back in the mid 90s where people tried to equate the story of Jesus with Horus which anybody with a passing knowledge of Egyptology would find ridiculous. Even with the nascent internet, I traced it back to a single book written in the 18th century. Angry and deluded atheists aren’t near as much of an issue compared to intransigent evangelicals

    Oh my goodness Michael..thank you for introducing me to Kate Bowler…wow! “Toxic Positivity..” Yes. It can be. Because we live in a broken, fallen world, filled with darkness and negativity, and it does us harm to live in denial and fake being positive when we really want to tear our hair out. I love the honesty..and I love bringing it all back to Jesus, the solution to all negativity. Holy Week is so wonderful!
