Scot, I was wondering if you have a book you would recommend that would help someone get started in birdwatching, especially the backyard variety. I want to be able to spot more than the blue parakeets!

I’m not sold on twitter. I remember long ago sitting in John Stott’s flat in London, listening to him talk about his love for birds. I would love to hear his thoughts on the comparisons between the songs of birds, and humans writing little “tweets” on what we are doing at the moment …
Probably revealing my age … :)

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
