The Resurrection, by Piero della Francesca, a fresco from the 1460s found in the Palazzo della Residenza, the City Hall, as it were, in the town of Sansepolcro, Tuscany, Italy. As is so often the case, in person it is far more impressive and moving than any reproduction. This fresco has made a strong impressions on […]

Norman to Nauvoo

Introduction Joseph Smith was unjustly confined in Liberty Jail from December 1838 to April 1839 along with several other Church leaders. Joseph suffered helplessly, knowing that the Latter-day Saints were being driven from Missouri under an “extermination order” from the governor. The Prophet and his companions were imprisoned in a rough stone dungeon measuring 14 […]

It has been a few days since their guest made his dramatic entrance. Contrary to what they predicted, the days following Kaneki Ken’s arrival was bland and dull as it has always been in the camp. That was mostly because their guest was nowhere to be seen ninety percent of time, he didn’t even show […]

Vinum Regum

It is said of great men that they must all pay a tithe of time and blood and strength and spend years of their greatest power wandering alone and unloved in the wilderness. This is almost certainly necessary. It is only when one walks alone in darkness that one finds the strength to bear the […]

Notre Dame, THE cathedral of Euro-Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church, was burned by Muslims. Right. So Sri Lanka, which has very few Christians (and all those Tamils are evil Muslims right?…You remember the 40-or-so year war between the Sri Lanka govt. and the Tamil Tigers, right? It ended in 2009) has church burnings and […]

Parliament of Owls

Imagine the ever-present dull hum of pain, grey fatigue that clogs your brain, the sense of being drowned alive, the back-aches that make you squirm and writhe; imagine the bloating and distention, the nausea and the migraine tension, the pain running tracks down your calves, the cramping tearing your muscles in halves; imagine wishing for […]

Farewell to Shadowlands

One could say that we in the wealthy western part of the world are experiencing a plague of emptiness. In the past, only the very wealthy had the resources to even attempt to find meaning and fulfillment in life beyond the basic need to survive. Now, almost everyone can try. The Oxford dictionary defines emptiness […]

Much to the amusement of many of my colleagues, it is 2019 and I have just got my first ever smartphone at the age of 48 and a bit. I want to talk about this. Don’t worry. I’m not here to review a smartphone. I am here to review the concept of smartphones from the […]

It was all getting too much. The bitterly cold prairie winter became an apt illustration of the lifeless landscape taking shape in her spirit. Personal challenges grew. The list of family and friends living their own agony, needing prayers, was getting way too long. Strife and relational tensions in the workplace compromised efforts at dialogue […]

George's Diary

So many believers are very conversant with what happened before the cross and during the cross but they never knew what happened after the cross and before resurrection because they have not been taught. One of the causes of people’s ignorance on what happened after the cross is based on the wrong translations of the […]

I woke up this morning to find Paradise Lost on the Stove. This isn’t unusual. I sometimes like to read while wandering around the house, and verse of any kind does this to me more than prose. Books wind up all over when this happens, and though Jenn was over last night, it happens even […]
