Let's remember in our prayers and light a candle for the people of the village of Guinsaugon, on the island of Leyte in the Phillipines where a mudslide has buried the village and 3000 people are missing.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

Lord have mercy!

The photo of the man holding the small child he had rescued reminded me of the photo of the firefighter holding the child after the OKC bombings.

what a world we live in.
