Two Greek Isles
On Santorini, wine flows easier than water. On Rhodes, I ate the grandest seafood feast of my life—
and probably yours too.
The Isle of Mykonos
One memory I have of this place is blowing kisses to an elderly babushka standing on her balcony draped
in black . . .
More Than a Feeling
A little introduction to Schleiermacher demonstrating the systematic relation of a prior methodological decision (gefühl) to the hypostatic union.
The Palace Bar on Lake Lucerne
Around 2:45 in the morning I made my way downstairs in the Hotel Palace to the Palace bar and found a dark corner. It wasn't dark enough.

The last thing we need is another book analyzing the problems facing the Western church or how “Christ” relates to “culture,” right? (In fact, once I read Rodney Clapp’s Peculiar People and then Craig Gay’s The Way of the (Modern) World, not to mention Hauerwas' and Willimon's Resident Aliens, I considered this genre officially closed.) Well, I guess we wouldn’t need another one if the majority of them were more concerned with fidelity to the charter (i.e., Scripture) given to the church by Jesus and his apostles than with “transforming” or improving culture—often through questionable, cultural (and thus ultimately subjective and relative) tactics.
