Quite a day

Among the blogs I read. FranIam has posted both yesterday and today about encounters with some non critically thinking members of her family.

These posts actually tie in with a paper posted on The Center for Progressive Christianity's website entitled "Myth Busting the Christian Right." This is long and involved, so allow some time. Well worth it, though. It refutes the idea that liberal Christians are relativists and introduces (at least it did to me) the idea of "moral realism." Give it some consideration.

I also enjoyed Kirkepiscatoid's thoughts on yesterday's Gospel lesson from Matthew. She was able to use the metaphor to examine some things in her own life and her conclusions were not only very satisfactory, but moving! Oh, BTW, she is the first person I've met in the wide Web we've woven who actually is a good friend of someone who was a good friend of mine when I was a freshman in college, over 30 years ago. Much closer than 6 degrees of separation!

What a coincidence about friends connecting like that. A web of interrelationships.

Thanks for the link.

I'd forgotten that you and I have sons about the same age. I like that.

Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday.

I read a few of your posts on this front page. Congratulations on achieving your target weight. A month ago, I overhauled my diet because of a high cholesterol reading--and also to reduce my chance of diabetes, which is in my family. I'm still adjusting to the changes, but I'm already seeing positive effects on my health.

And blessings on your interior work. It is hard but so worthwhile.

I'm going to add you to my reader. I like what I've sensed of your spirit in your posts.

Laura!! I just actually said that I did not read your blog in a comment elsewhere... What is wrong with me?

I guess I did not realize that you were back blogging again.

Well now I do know and I will make sure I don't miss a post.

So let me go read this one...

Thanks for the link love and for all your prayerful friendship and support.
