I Gotta Question (#4)

I am one to know my resources, and use them as needed.  Therefore, this is not a manipulative ploy to get some “pingbacks” (Still not sure what that is?  I think it’s when someone links to your site?)  On the contrary, over the three (count ‘em, 3!!) years of blogging, I’ve come to trust some pretty cool writers that I’ve met only via the dot-wordpress-dot-com world.

Having said that, they have value, not only intrinsically as friends, but I also appreciate their instrumental value in terms of experiential wisdom and intellectual honesty.

And those are things in somewhat short supply, in case you haven’t noticed.

So, without further ado, I post yet another “I Gotta Question”, with specific links to a few (but not all—I have many) of the blogs I respect.  If you have time to give your thoughts, that would be great.  Better yet, perhaps this could be a prompt for a post on your own site, if you feel so inclined.  (If so, please do link to me so I don’t miss it!)

Question:  How does this apply?  What does it look like? 

For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.

And now for my panel of experts:

Hollywood, and other surprises

usa-2661636_1920When it comes to Hollywood, I would never make it in “The Industry”.  For starters, Southern Cal has two seasons: sunny dry heat, and fire.  And here in the Midwest, we may have our tornadoes, but at least there’s some warning.  Earthquakes, on the other hand… Continue reading “Hollywood, and other surprises”

I love the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.  My NYC artist daughter says that the collection there is considerable, and she would know.  I’m a particular fan of the antiquities section, Egypt and all that, and Bob always likes to visit the Orientals.  Of course, part of the artwork that is preserved has to do with the culture’s endemic religious artifacts, including the stone/metal/wooden idols, some little and some not so little (there’s a Buddha in the stairwell that would not even fit in my house….)

Of course, in our post-modern (whatever that is), enlightened and Continue reading “Back seat Buddha”
