Great Magic Is Still Amazing Even When You Know How the Tricks Work

I love it when Penn and Teller do this: They don't just perform a trick like they did on The Late Late Show this week. They pull back the curtain and do it a second time so you can see what's actually going on! It's still amazing even after the illusion is revealed.

Word getting around that Sept. 1 is World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis a year ago declared that Catholics would join their Orthodox brothers and sisters and other Christians to formally mark Sept. 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. This year awareness of the day is gaining momentum as church groups and faith-based environment advocates have instituted a series of […]

Tomorrow is August 25th, which means only 4 months to Christmas. It’s never too early to start planning your advent services: Today something a little different. Because the 30th Weekend Link List happened on Saturday, I’m going to reiterate all those links at the bottom of today’s, just ICYMI. (Statistically many of you do miss […]

YouTube Atheists Sue Christian Film Company Over Multiple Frivolous DMCA Complaints

Hugo and Jake from The Bible Reloaded show announced yesterday that they were filing a lawsuit against the Christiano Film Group for filing multiple copyright claims against them, forcing their videos to come down.

Wednesday Link List

Let’s be realistic here. After last week’s 38-point link list, you weren’t expecting another huge one, were you?  You do know I don’t get paid for this, right? At right, our Book Cover of the Week, published this year by Multnomah, authored by two of the Happy Rant Podcast guys. With the latest release of […]

Wake to you

I want to wake to you. When my alarm pulls me (a silvered trout, struggling, from sleep's stream) you remind me I breathe air, can thrive. Your song calls forth my own. I'm a tuning fork, vibrating. When my walls...

Becoming a Christian by the Numbers

…or in this case, The Book of Numbers I’m breaking our 12-month rule here, only because I used this approach with a young woman on Friday and realized that I wanted to share this again on the blog and didn’t want to wait until October. ? ? Could you retell this Bible story? That was […]

Carl Anderson Speaks for the Church: Don’t Vote for Pro-Abortion Politicians in 2016

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson spoke out against voting for pro-abortion politicians in his address to the Supreme Convention of the Knights of Columbus in Canada earlier this month. “[T]he right to abortion is not just another political issue; it is, in reality, a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths,” Anderson [...]

Wednesday Link List

I hereby declare this link list officially opened! Not only opened by jam-packed this week! (I needed to write something here because this is the opening sentence which appears in the Twitter feed.)

Grace, Guns, and Freedom

How a Maine restaurant owner’s discrimination against gun rights advocates signals a disturbing trend in American culture As a conservative living in Texas (albeit, not a native Texan) I’ve often been in something of a minority position when it comes to guns. For the longest time I didn’t like guns. I’ve been, and still am, [...]

Why Trump Is Suprisingly Good for Muslims

Last week, filmmaker Mick Kalber and pilot Colin Burkhardt flew over the Pu’u O’o crater in Hawaii when they caught the lava inside in a familiar position:

Wednesday Link List

This cartoon — which I discovered we’ve used before (in color) — highlights the need to be able to function on a number of levels. To some common folk, there are philosophical issues raised in the first panel which are possibly above their pay grade. But the highbrow intellectual or academic might totally miss the […]

Aaser hile Muslims were celebrating the final days of Ramadan and Eid, two unarmed black men – Philando Castile and Alton Sterling – were shot and killed by police officers in separate events in Minneapolis and Baton Rouge.
