Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

Wacky Wednesday: Villainy and Veneration

Honey: “What are you doing here? Looking for shells?”
Bond: “No, I’m just looking.”
from “Dr. No”

First, villainy…

By way of an addendum to my recent review of the new James Bond flick, fellow saint and sinner Michael Frost has shared a wonderful resource: The Ultimate James Bond Fansite.  If you’ve ever entertained the notion of being one of Bond’s arch-villains or femme fatales, you’ll find your favorites here.  (For me it’s a tough call between Honey Ryder and Tanya Romanova.)

(Incidentally, on another note, can anyone point me to the Lord Tennyson poem that Judy Dench’s character, “M,” quotes towards the end of the movie?)

Next, veneration…

If you’re another restless soul looking for the More that we haven’t found in our churches- more direction, more truth, more life and more community- then I think you’ll like our next series, “The Visual Word,” which will feature photos and Scriptural reflections by fellow saint and sinner Katie Archibald-Woodward, as she encounters God in the natural world and in her own comings and goings and restless peregrinations.

Katie Archibald-Woodward is a recent graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary with many gifts- among them, photography, leading worship and a smile that lights up a room.

I had the privilege of meeting Katie in, of all places, church, (Kairos Church here in Atlanta), and she’s one of these people who lights up a room.  We discovered in our last conversation that we grew up only minutes away from one another in the otherwise unmemorable but endearing suburbs of southern California.  You’ll get to know Katie better next week when our series starts, but in the meantime you can find her blogging here.
