posted by David Kuo

John McCain’s band of white advisers had best take a stroll down the lane of African-American oratorical history before they launch their next anti-Obama missive. [This is not to suggest that there is anything racial about McCain’s ad. I’m sure […]

Apocalpyto, Iraq, Satan

posted by David Kuo

I have become a huge fan of Greg Boyd, pastor of Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, MN. Huge. Read his blog, listen to his sermons, this guy is real. Yesterday he wrote about watching Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto. It’s a […]

The church, the memorial service, the gay man

posted by David Kuo

As you probably heard last week, an Arlington, TX church rescinded its offer to hold a memorial service for the brother of one of its employees after the church discovered that…. this is where it gets confusing. The church has […]

The “new Ted Haggard” isn’t

posted by David Kuo

New Life Church, in Colorado Springs, is the mega-church founded by now-disgraced pastor Ted Haggard. It was the collateral damage of last fall’s revelation of Pastor Haggard’s relationship with a gay prostitute. Membership fell by more than 30%. Those remaining […]

The Sunday morning debate

Is the complete mess of the Republican party any clearer than with the fact that all of these men who are trying to compete for votes and attention – and are really trying to mobilize the completely disinterested conservative Christian […]

What draws us to God?

Back...
I'm back here at JWalking after a bit of time because I just want someplace to record thoughts from time to time.

Learning to tell a story
For the last ten months or so I've been engaged in a completely different world - the world of screenwriting. It began as a writing project - probably the 21st Century version of a yen to write the great American novel - a shot at a screenplay. I knew that I knew nothing about the art but was inspir

And just one more
I have, I think, just one more round of chemo left. When I go through my pill popping regimen tomorrow morning it will be the last time for this particular round of drugs.
