John La Grou points to a new website dedicated to Christvertising. One of those coffee snorting experiences, satire at its best. iMonk points to an article in Slate Magazine on the shiny, happy world of Joel Osteen. It’s true that I don’t link this kind of writing very much; maybe I’m a little too much […]

Er.. wha…? Earlier this year… or was it last year.. I dunno I turned fifty in May and the years increasingly blend together… Anyway, at some point the recent past I got playing with some Berkeley Breathed cartoons, inspired by that tireless trickster Robbymac.

In the past, when a new Branch has needed to be opened, He has left it to experienced tempters He knows can be trusted to follow established protocol through to success; however, […]
