Our daughter, Laura, ran a half-marathon last Sunday downtown in Chicago and also exceeded her expectations for her time. Great going Laura!

Yes, I’m running the marathon in Detroit- I wanted to run Niagara Falls, but it turns out they moved it back a week from last year. I have to be in Florida that weekend. Argh. But I am excited to run in Detroit, anyway, and didn’t want all my training to go for naught.

Last night I lay in bed reading about a little girl who wanted to play outside in the yard but when she exited the front door she got stuck in the snow. She tried but couldn’t get out; her daddy had to rescue her and then clear a path for so she could run between the house and the yard.
Today I read about this same girl on her daddy’s website, only this time instead of running in the yard she’s running through the streets of Chicago.
Congrats!

Laura and Lukas,
Congratulations and good luck! Running was and remains at age 67 one of the pleasures of my life. Laura, did you realize how only recently women were allowed to run marathons. I learned, when training for my first Boston Marathon in 1972 that only about five years earlier, Katherine Switzer, had entered the race as K. Switzer (so her entry wouldn’t be rejected) and at the start Jock Semple, the B.A.A. organizer, tried to physically throw her off the course, but she had a boyfriend who protected her, and she finished the race with a good time! When I ran my last Boston marathon about 15 years later, Scot’s age- you can do it, Scot- the best women were beating over 95% of the men!

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
