This week’s Christian Carnvial is at Proverbs Daily. There are over 60 posts this time (I think that’s the most so far). One noteworthy post on Christians and Terri Schiavo by Neil Uchitel at Digitus, Finger and Co. caught my attention and I left a lengthy comment there.


There's been important discussion concerning the definition of personhood at Wittenberg Gate, Through a Glass Darkly, Jollyblogger and certainly others, as well as at Mr. Uchitel's blog. I only just discovered this so I haven't had a chance to read over everything yet. I hope to do so soon and to comment here.


I won't even bother making any more promises regarding my review of The Abolition of Man...since I’ve broken the last several (hanging head in shame). I do hope to continue it...I just can’t seem to get past current events.


My three-year-old daughter loves to run around without clothes on, as do most small children (though we require she cover her bum). Trouble is, our house is chilly. She always insists she’s warm, though.

Here’s an exchange from a few mornings ago:

Me: “Rosie, where are your clothes?”

Rose: “I’m not cold.”

Me: “Honey, it’s cold in this house, are you sure you’re not cold?”

Rose: “I’m....Not....COLD!”

Me: “Brrrr, I’m getting cold just looking at you!”

Rose: “Then put on a sweater!”


Just when you think you’ve heard everything:
