Things that were drawn to my attention this past week…..

  1. Who are the unchurched?
  2. After Texas gave New Mexico to the USG for a tax write-off, the NM chamber of commerce began to refer to NM as ‘the land of enchantment.’  Don’t get me wrong, NM has a particular familial hold on me.  On the other hand, the chamber of commerce (where ever it exists) is a nest of orcs.  Now it seems that some of the ‘enchantment’ has moved eastward into west Texas.  Small people with magic rings have come under the ‘all seeing eye of Sauron.’
  3. On the subject of Tolkien and language.
  4. What was once ‘word-smithing’ degraded ‘journalism’ is really a battle for the language.
  5. Of course, ‘journalism’ should be treated like the mouth of Sauron (watch the end of the negotiations).
  6. Churchian evanjellyfish fool!  (Great title).  I doubt this is the way the battle is joined.
  7. Since I am coming out of my winter library, it seems appropriate that there is a purpose to being well read.

Be well.
