Also while I'm on hiatus...

Let me leave you with some things to check out and/or ponder.
  • Whatever happened to the Holy Spirit? Dan Edelen wants to know.
  • Kill the bear!
  • According to this Wikipedia article, the upcoming episode of Lost, "The Man from Tallahassee", will feature conversations between Locke and Ben. Will Locke ask a question I would ask if I were him - "If you saw our plane fall from the sky, why did you decide to 'infiltrate' us, lie to us, and harm us when you should have come to help us?" Then again, it's such an obvious and giving-away-the-show-storyline question that there's no way any character will ask that (and no Other would directly answer it).
  • I was a fan of pro wrestling back in the early 1980's. Those were the glory days of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and WrestleMania III. I felt very sad reading this article about the current use of steroids by some pro wrestlers. (When I worked as a university hall director a few years ago, one of my resident advisors was a niece of this wrestler - he claims to be a Christian.)
  • Maybe the less you know about aliens, the better.
  • Joe Carter lists 10 things we've forgotten about the Iraq war. He also gives a scathing critique of Jim Wallis' views on Darfur (for God's sake, save them!) and Iraq (saving them offends God!).
  • Improbably, I'm a fan of Bravo's Project Runway. There will be a season four. Style guru Tim Gunn has a book coming out - and in case you hadn't noticed, Gunn himself is out as well.
  • I'll believe this about a Real World cast when I see it. Every season showcases nothing but the same sex-crazed, constantly-intoxicated 20-somethings who fight about sex and alcohol - they're just in a different city each season. RW stopped being interesting after San Francisco, and I pity the poor people who've only seen it from Las Vegas on.
  • Mark Driscoll reveals a bit of himself with this post. Frank Turk brings up important points on one aspect of Driscoll's post: the apparent need for multiple services and video broadcasting. iMonk talked to Noel Heikkinen about it.
  • I probably shouldn't have, but I chuckled at reading this bumper sticker.


  1. Matt,

    Thank you for the link to the post on the Holy Spirit at Cerulean Sanctum. I pray it blesses your readers.

  2. What cracks me up more about that bumper sticker (and yes, I think it's pretty funny), is why in the world is Amazon selling bumper stickers?

    Appealing to all levels of literacy, I guess.

  3. I would ask Ben what the Smoke Monster is.

  4. As for Steve "Sting" Borden, he truly is a Christian as I am a good friend of his. He is an elder at the church I minister at as well.
