Rachel weeping

I’m back, but it was a late night and I’ve nothing prepared, so mostly this will be one more of Jessica’s, but not a happy one. It is also a day after our churches celebrate the Slaughter of the Innocents. Some of those churches, it must be said, with their eyes tight closed to what they […]

[ One of Jessica’s best from 2013] Well, Neo and I are both, in our ways, in the bosom of our families, and we both hope that you are too – but perhaps like us, you are just looking at that Reader in the intervals of good cheer and fellowship. We are all, of course, […]

Remembrance Sunday

I wrote this morning on All along the Watchtower, this is part of that article. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead: Short days ago, We lived, […]

Maintaining the Dream

John Stuart Mill said … the very principle of constitutional government requires it to be assumed, that political power will be abused to promote the particular purposes of the holder; not because it always is so, but because such is the natural tendency of things… And that’s the thing, isn’t it? One of the reasons […]

What Christians believe

This is from a talk entitled What Christians Believe, by G.K. Chesterton. It became Chapter 11 in Mere Christianity. As usual, it sums things up very well. And yes, it is one of my favorite books on Christianity. Continue reading What Christians believe . . . → Read More: What Christians believe

Why Conservatives Should Start Breaking The Laws That Oppress Us

This carries on something that I have been speaking on at the Watchtower, you can find those articles here, and here, and do read the comments as well, many points are clarified there. This is from The Federalist. Take a look at this sentence from a Daily Mail article reporting on Donald Trump’s “Contract with […]

4 Reasons Globalism Won’t Retreat Anytime Soon

Rachel Lu brings a whole load of common sense for us to ponder… Globalism is in full-on retreat, or so I’ve been given to understand. Cosmopolitans, your name is mud. This is the year when conservatives start thumbing their noses at soft borders, interventionist foreign policy, and even free trade. We’re sick of liberals and […]

Still Naught For Our Comfort

Embed from Getty Images One of the things that I love about my partner here, Jessica, is that she has rekindled my love for poetry, and you have seen each of us use it to reinforce our points. It is hardly a new method but, it is one used rarely these days. I suspect because most of […]

We are all oppressed!

I am oppressed. It is offensive to me that I am oppressed. If you are a political leader you must do something about it; if you are a fellow commentator you must not offend me further by querying my oppressed status. But I am white, you may say, I have ‘white privilege’. True, that means […]

“God is love, and He loves you greatly.”




“You’re not a curse, but a blessing in this world. God is pleased with you, because in His eyes you are “very good.”



Create in the Image of Our Creator

I sit on a sun-warmed a sandstone shelf in Whatcom County’s Larrabee State Park, overlooking the Sound. I can feel the grit of the friable sandstone under my hand. The rocks arch over me like breaking waves, carved into intriguing crannies and hollows, and pitted with a kind of stone lace where wind and water have whirled tiny grains of sand within concavities until the rock face becomes an example of pure, abstract art.

Feed my sheep?

Jesus spoke about how when we ignore the hungry and the homeless and the dispossessed, we ignore him. His followers hadn’t cottoned on, and as so often, he ended up having to explain to them. In becoming man, he saved us, and we are all made new in him – and have a common bond. […]

Easter: Past and Present

I sit here now, in the dark of an early Nebraska Saturday morn, and look back over the week we call Easter week and think it truly named. That’s because a week ago, I was watching a friend of mine founder in a situation, not of their making, which was coming very close to stealing […]

He is Risen

That’s the importance of the day. Jesus the Christ is risen from the dead. A few words on some of the symbolism, The term Easter comes from the old Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, although the only real mention is from the Venerable Bede. The egg being proscribed during Lent was offered in abundance at Easter […]

‘This doubtful day of feast or fast’

Something unusual today for Good Friday. It falls on Lady Day, the Feast of the Annunciation, something that won’t happen again until 2157. Our forefathers in the faith considered it to be the true date of the Crucifixion. A Clerk of Oxford tells us: This day was not only a conjunction of man-made calendars but also […]

Naught For Our Comfort

This is a repost of a post I made reworking Jess’ first (and guest post here) in the fall of 2014, when she was just starting her recovery. It gave me comfort then from the strain and worry involved, and the horribleness of knowing she might be gone from my life,  just like that. Now, […]

The Morning After…

…in the City on the Hill. Rubio suspends his campaign.     A class act, till the end, Marco Rubio. Yes, I, like many of you, strongly disliked his predilection of immigration amnesty. But, that said, he is amongst the best of us. I’ll miss him, but it was time. Kasich can no longer be […]
