Cell Phones: Progress Report

posted by xscot mcknight

I reported yesterday that I got my first cell phone last Friday. I’ve learned a few things, not the least of which is how to take pictures. So, I took a picture of Brad Nassif, and then some of my […]

Forgiveness and the Face 2

posted by xscot mcknight

Yesterday’s post emphasized intersubjectivity as central to forgiveness. Today we want to look at Sandage and Shults’ The Faces of Forgiveness and the issues of “saving face”, what the faces in a “face to face” look like, at “systemic estrangement,” […]

Emerging Peter: Suffering 2
