war and peace

Just to get you riled up for today... I present to you signs outside a restaurant in PA. Read a few of them, and enjoy. Casa D'Ice's "Famous Signs" I'll comment on them in a later post.

On to something less divisive...

I really need to read Anthony de Mello again soon. If you don't know him, he's a Jesuit priest who grew up in India. Because of this, his Jesus is much more mystical and contemplative. Generally, these things throw up red flags for us bible-thumping Christians who are busy defending ourself against science, much less mysticism. However, he's a good read that pumps a good bit of mystery back into God. You can find the book I was introduced to in undergrad, here. (its selected writings)
