Even though our faith may be 2,000 years old, our thinking is not. True progress is a balance between preserving the essence of a certain way of life and changing things that are not essential. Christianity was born a revolutionary faith, and we have preserved that ... Paradoxically, we have succeeded in not changing the faith that is itself dedicated to change.~ His All Holiness Bartholomew I ~
Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Christian World
...if you knew these things about me?
~ I swear. Not like a sailor. More like a logger.
~ I love Jesus--but I am not "one of those Christians".
~ I don't believe that all people do the best they can all the time.
~ Obliviousness is one of my major pet peeves.
~ I think Starbucks is evil.
~ I think the insurance and pharmaceutical industries are evil.
~ There are plenty of things I hate--truly hate...
~ ...including built in obsolescence...
~ ...and bigots--I hate bigots so much I am one.
~ Some days I just don't want to get wet so I don't shower.
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my thoughts.
See if there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
~ Psalm 139:23-24 ~
