Hero of the Faith

Here is Olga Murry of Sausalito, CA.

Doing a little Women's work - setting Captives free.
Read her story here at the Chronicle.

One of the fun things Tony Compolo said last week at NWYM was that retirement (as recreation and rest) was unchristian for healthy people. He advised second careers as Lamb's warriors and Kingdom workers for all who are able. I agree. I like what Olga is doing with her 'sunset years'. I like the picture of militant elderly people. Dangerous old people. Watch out for that hobbling little green Jedi. Make sure you take the staff away from that old wizard. Dangerous - the good kind.

I like the idea of Every Christian a hero.



Ode to Joy

The kids are having pipes an drums at the wedding,

but really, would this not make a great processional?



It isn't all that often that I can come up with photographic witness to some of the stories I tell, but once in a while...

Last month I got a little subversion in at a wedding. I visited the bride's facebook page, and lookee lookee, me talking to little anne marie in her Disney princess dress. You probably can't enlarge this, but what I didn't notice at the time was the looks I was getting from the nearby old folks.

Here is the happy couple

Losing Pvt. Dwyer

We don't just lose those killed in combat.

A Most wonderful time of the year

After Christmas morning, my favorite morning of the year is that day at the end of the strawberries and the beginning of the blueberries where you can take your cereal bowl out in the backyard and make it look like this.


Faith is the Assurance of Things Unseen


Loudly and Clearly

I think this is a really good post with practical and spiritual applications.
