    The percentage of female pulpit pastors may not be increasing, but their visibility is because at least anecdotally they’re getting bigger pulpits. I think you may have reported on this previously.

    “I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object. ”

    it is about time for religions to come to together toput God in control of His creation. We have seeing a lot of setback in God’s restorational providence because of man failure to carry out his given portion of responsibility indicated in the three great blessings.

    we are not even ashame of allowing same sex marriages . As believers in Jesus Christ it is our time to speak out on this issue openly.
    Best wishes,

    I tried to find the CRUX quiz but only arrived at a dead end – a blank page with just a heading but no further links. Is this the outcome suggested for Catholics? Oh, woe is me!

    I took the quiz and here is where it would send me: the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe

    I think I’m good with that.

    When God and/or Jesus starts running for office, then I could consider their input in our political system. As far as I can see, they are not going out there to get the signatures needed to be on the ballot.

  • My thanks to Adele Banks for her photos of the colorful “walls” created by those of us who think the Supreme Court’s decision granting Hobby Lobby a religious exemption is a gross travesty of justice. I’m not a secular humanist, but I still think the Secular Coalition for America has the right idea. I may even have spotted one of the five deep-pink “bricks” I crocheted for the project. It was comforting to see that I wasn’t the only contributor who didn’t have any red yarn on hand and used what was available!

  • PS I also took the quiz at Crux and ended up in the Holy Land. Been there, done that, back in 1995 before that detestable wall was built. I ditched my Israel Tourism handlers in order to pay my respects to a Christian pastor in Bethlehem whose daughter had been our summer intern. I’ve never forgotten how what I saw in Bethlehem put the lie to the propaganda we were fed on that press junket.
