book review

Conversations With God
By Neale Donald Walsch, currently in print, three volumes.

Neale Donald Walsch is reliably wrong about everything.
(cf: Mark Steyn's comments on Islamist apologist Robert Fisk.)

confucius he say

It's always a sobering moment in a young man's life when he stops updating his blog and the ratings go up.

tempest tossed

midnight comes
winter takes the world
long a lover of storms
in the tumult and the downpour
i walk forth
sadness has held too much of me
i would dismiss it if i could
still it holds
heart and soul and blood
in a vice of grief a grip of misery
yet there is hope
for even in hopelessness i know this
that Christ is lord of time as well of space
his victory whatever age it holds
will hold all ages
and darkness will fall
to the nothingness it is
darkness has closed in
as many times before it closed
but it shall not win
it shall not win
