2 Shootings in Colorado at Christian Sites – New York Times: A gunman killed two people at a training center dormitory for young Christian missionaries early Sunday after being told he couldn’t spend the night, and hours later four people were shot outside a church in Colorado Springs. It was not immediately known whether the shootings, about 65 miles apart, were related. Technorati Tags: Persecution

The Most Ironic Thing Said So Far About The Golden Compass

The Most Ironic Thing Said So Far About The Golden Compass

Irony from the The Numbers News on The Golden Compass: Only a miracle can save it now. That’s the last thing Pullman believes in… Somewhere last week a reviewer or blogger said the film lacked “magic.” That’s ironic too, in view of its witches, daemons, and alethiometer. I haven’t seen the book yet, but I can guess what’s missing. What is this “magic”? The same reviewer (if I recall correctly) said it was there in Narnia and The Lord of…

After All This Blog Upgrading

After All This Blog Upgrading

It was a flurry of work for me to get this blog up to speed on the new web system, and a few other writing deadlines landed on top of the whole project. I feel like a have a brand-new car raring to go, but I can’t get it out of the garage because there are too many chores to do around the house. Actually, that’s more than a metaphor: there may not be a new car in the garage,…

Brittany Spears and Whitney Houston: College Basketball Teammates

Brittany Spears and Whitney Houston: College Basketball Teammates

Yes it’s true! Spears plays guard, and Houston is a forward for Colorado. Nothing made up here. Check it out for yourself! This was funnier when I heard it on the radio, where “Brittany” sounded just like “Britney.” It’s still good for a laugh, anyway. Britney Spears, University of Colorado, Whitney Houston

Golden Compass Radio Interview

Golden Compass Radio Interview

Last Monday Morning I had a talk about The Golden Compass with David McIver of Praise FM radio in western Minnesota. It’s about 8 minutes long, available here for listening. I cut off some discussion at the end that was not germane to the movie. I confess my thumbnail description of 930 pages of highly complex plotting left a lot to be desired. I wasn’t expecting to have to attempt that impossible feat! The rest ought to be interesting. It’s…

Introducing the New Thinking Christian!

Introducing the New Thinking Christian!

Welcome to the new Thinking Christian! I hope you like the new look. Actually, it wasn’t primarily for looks that I made this transition, but because the software I was using up until now had become obsolete, and three-year-old promises of an upgrade have lost credibility. WordPress is a great way to go, anyway. Older posts are still where they always were. You can track them down through this entry page, or through the Google search in the sidebar, which…

Whew!

Whew!

I should have stayed off the blog like I said I was going to. I tried installing some WordPress plug-ins, and one of them absolutely broke the blog for about half an hour. Prayer time! I couldn’t even get administrator login; I had to use an external database editor to get rid of some code, and then re-install the page theme. That has removed some of my customization in the sidebar and header, but I’ll add it back in.

And Now, a Blogging Break!

And Now, a Blogging Break!

Whew! It’s a lot of work to set up a new blog, try things that end up not working (I wanted to import the whole of the old blog stuff into this one), fix things that break along the way, and tweak it all just right. And then there were a couple of glitches in the Christian Carnival–entries that didn’t make it to me as they should have, and some that made it but that I missed by my own…
