Summer Shorts spacer Summer Shorts
BY: Margie Haack
In a moment of general regret my husband said: “I’m sorry.” He was looking at me with tears in his eyes. I thought he was referring to the way he ignored me when I asked him to read another version of this letter. But, no, his apology was about our IRA. “You deserved so much better than this. I haven’t made any money at all for us.” I could’ve said something gooshy, but without thinking, I chose to be wry. “Ah, but You deserved so much better: A woman who could diet and have sex everyday.

Considering Arguments Against spacer Considering Arguments Against
BY: Denis Haack
If I want to hear the best, the strongest argument against Christian faith wouldn’t it be better to read something written by a thoughtful disbeliever, rather than reading a summary of their thinking filtered through the mind of a believer in the midst of a sustained argument for the faith?

Trust and Safety spacer Trust and Safety
BY: Denis Haack
“By nature the heart is like a troubled sea, casting forth the foam of anger and wrath. Now meekness calms the passions. It sits as moderator in the soul, quieting and giving check to its distempered motions.” - Thomas Watson

127 Hours (Danny Boyle, 2010) spacer 127 Hours (Danny Boyle, 2010)
BY: Wesley Hill
According to this movie, it’s not that “Please help me” is more significant than “I love you.” Rather, “Please help me” is itself a form of “I love you.” The two cries belong together.

The King's Speech (Tom Hooper, 2010) spacer The King's Speech (Tom Hooper, 2010)
BY: R. Greg Grooms
The King’s Speech is rated R because of a scene in which Lionel encourages Bertie to curse extemporaneously. The result is one of the most delightfully vulgar things I’ve ever seen on film.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
