Scot, is the sky always that blue? That is a sight for sore eyes to this Chicagoan.

You’ll have to go down to Alberobello in Southern Italy and see the Trulli Houses some time. It’s quite a quaint little town and very unique. http://www.sitiunesco.it/index.phtml?id=537 I loved my time spent there.

I’ll take any of those things, but am also especially fond of the afternoon coffee.

Scot, correct pesto -can- be made in a blender. Blend 2/3 of the ingredients until smooth, then add the remaining greens + hard cheese and blend slow until rustic texture.
These Italy posts are making me homesick.

There’s nothing like Italian sights, nights, sounds, food, coffee, topography, history and people. We’re all jealous. Gratzi for sharing!

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
