Are You Really Christian in Any Significant Sense? THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - November 22, 2014 I am not the first person to make this observation, and I won't be the last: Does your Christian discipleship make you stand out in any way at all? If it doesn't I believe that chances are it's because you are not really following Christ very well. Now, there are of course better followers and worse followers. I am somewhere in the middle.

Music has always been a big part of my life. I've always loved dancing. If there was music playing, I'd be dancing even before I could stand. I did Mexican folkorico dancing in elementary school. I did ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2014/11/i-didnt-choose-st-cecilia-she-chose-me.html

Those waters flow out from that dwelling place and they bring life wherever they flow. The waters transform everything they touch – even making the salty sea fresh. Friends, we are those waters ...http://jesusindisney.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-church-consumed.html
Medical Drama and Other QTs KATHLEEN M. BASI - October 31, 2014 ... from being at home on the studio upright. I serenade the church cleaners with sixty repetitions at breakneck turtle pace (the only way I can play a real piano part), stopping every few notes to scribble, erase, and rewrite on staff paper. -5- Speaking of writing music, I want to put an observation out there, and then I'll have done. Many times in writing music–perhaps even most–the magic comes from a wrong note. I put my fingers down intending to play one thing and I hit something ...http://kathleenbasi.com/2014/10/31/medical-drama-and-other-qts/

Lucas Cranach the Elder, Kattrina Luther , 1526 Okay, that's a pretty specific heading, so bear with me.

Protecting God's Word From "Bible Christians" CRISIS MAGAZINE - October 3, 2014 "Stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours." ~ St. Paul to the Thessalonians A former student of mine is thinking of becoming a Catholic, and she had a question for me. "I don't understand the deuterocanonical books," she ventured. "If the Catholic faith is supposed to be a fulfillment of the Jewish faith, why do Catholics accept those books and the Jews don't?" She'd done her homework , and was ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/N8FbnTUawTc/protecting-gods-word
