Tis a shame you don't live closer or I could give you the book for free!

For ten dollas I get that new book smell. Also, Kentucky is like the last state I would pop by. Coincidentally, I might be ordering tickets to the US within a week. Won't be visiting Kentucky, though.

It is the thought that counts though!

I recently took "Why Christianity Must Change or Die" by John Shelby Spong up to the bedroom. I haven't started reading it yet, but I will shortly. I started it just before I left for my study abroad a few years back, which is why I didn't finish it. At the time I thought it would be the saving grace of my faith. It wasn't, needless to say, but I still enjoy some progressive Christian philosophy.

To paraphrase Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now, accusing people of heresy around here is like giving out speeding tickets at the Indy 500!

Can't say that I blame you. If I didn't live in Kentucky, I would say the exact same thing. Hell, when people move from states other than Ohio, Indiana, or Tennessee I ask them what in the hell brought them here. I hear interesting stories, but that is about it. I used to despise this state, but as I have gotten older I have come to really appreciate the state and its natural beauty.

alright, got me there... I just disagree with the man.

Speaking of liberal (albeit orthodox ) theologians, I just re-read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis again. I never get tired of that series.

Can't fault you there! It's books like those that make me excited to have children.
