We the laymen
Apr 16, 2014
, , , , , , , , , ,
I am a layman. I am not a theologian, a doctor, a professor, a scientist or a physicist. I am what you would call, uneducated. At least uneducated in the sense that I do not, nor will I ever have, an M.Div., a PhD., or any other abbreviation that I can attach to my name. […]
To Rachel Held Evans, RE: “If my son or daughter were gay…”
Jul 3, 2013
, ,
There is a stream of tears dripping from the end of Rachel Held Evans’s recent blog, “If my son or daughter were gay…”. I have to admit: I am crying, too. And who wouldn’t weep, if the assumption is that homosexuals are unequivocally beloved as homosexuals in the church, that God apparently does not call […]
Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus
Jun 19, 2013
, ,
The Latin phrase, Extra ecclesiam nulla salus, means, “Outside the Church there is no ‎salvation”. It refers to the Christian belief that the Church is essential to God’s plan of ‎salvation. It sounds Roman Catholic. It is catholic (i.e. universal), but not Roman Catholic. In ‎fact, this doctrine preceded, survived, and continued after the papal […]

‘Seven Days in Utopia’ Movie Review
Sep 29, 2011

‘Seven Days in Utopia’ is played to be a golfer’s journey into the heart and soul of the game. Golfing can be fun (so they say) and this film wants to show us how it reflects the game of life. Utopia is not an imaginary place, but a part of our world that few people — let alone sports enthusiasts — ever get to experience. Robert Duvall plays an astute retired golfer that can teach the young and misled golfer wannabe a thing or two about life. So does this work? Or are we left wishing we had instead gone to see 'The Lion King' in 3D? Find out now on Movieology!
