Sorry about the Rickroll. Had to do it.
Good friends. Y’all are awesome.

I have now read the book, and the more articulate of Bell’s detractors are quite likely correct in asserting that...

Best call I’ve ever received: Woman: Is it true that someone is burning a flag on y’alls campus today? Me: That’s correct. They’ve registered it as a peaceful protest. Woman (growing angry): Y’all better put a stop to that, or else no one’s gonna buy your products. [Products= school merchandise] Me: Ma’am, we’re not in a position to do anything...

Obscene amounts of coffee? Check. A panoply of magnificent Pandora stations? Check. The inclination to study? … …oops.
I love Peter Bradley Adams.

“For although I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law...

I know everyone already chewed this over on their various blogs last night, but I was busy catching up on Z’s after a long weekend, so I’m posting now. As an American, I’m quite excited that we finally got Osama. I am proud of our armed forces and deeply, deeply thankful for the sacrifices they make in their service. As a follower of Christ, my heart is broken at this news. The...
Osama Bin Laden. I’m not sure how I feel about that.
