Comment Festival Continues!

It took a month, but my previously announced "comment festival" is under way! Meanwhile, I haven't yet done my "Medieval Judaism" essays (don't worry, I technically have until October, but it would be really, really good to get them done this summer, preferably this month), so it'll be another month of "light posting". But feel free to drop by and leave a comment, question, rebuttal, a picture of your favorite dog or cat, or whatever you are led to do!

Oh wow. Not much action, is there?

OK. What to comment?

Read my books.

Read my blog:

Flee mainline denominations.

That's all that comes to mind just now.

Hey, thanks for helping dispell the stony silence! Speaking of mainline denominations, who came up with the term "mainline" in the first place. My impression is that it was "mainliners" themselves who coined the term. They certainly use it alot. A thought that has been brewing for awhile - isn't there something a little immodest about someone proclaiming themselves to be "mainline" (especially when statistically they have been a minority for awhile now, and shrinking fast)? It somehow sounds to me like the Nazis proclaiming themselves to be the "master race".

It's hard, I think, for us to realize today how different things were in the past. In the Old Days, your mainline denominations were the sane, stolid, conservative guardians of orthodoxy, looking askance at those weird, rabble-rousing, theologically questionable revivalists. How things change.

Thanks for asking, Michael! The short version is, I am very blessed these days, & can also use prayer. I'll try to fill in the blanks sometime soon.
