A Good Book - A Good Movie

A good friend of ours, who is a lawyer and author (among other good things), has written a very important book. Protecting Your Church Against Sexual Predators. He's a fairly new blogger too, so go visit Brevia Notes and look around at all the good information he offers in his links, you'll probably want to be there for days. Recently, Voyle had quadruple bypass surgery. His Legal Spaghetti blog (March archive) links to the story of what he endured. He and his wife have raised great kids. One of their sweet daughters went to school with my daughter, Deliverance, and was in the same youth group with my son-in-law Josh, and is presently a missionary.

My husband and I went to Ben Steins new release Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed (watch the super trailer on the right).This film shows that the careers of top scientists have been squashed by their superiors and ostracized by their peers for even mentioning that Intelligent Design should be considered as part of the creation theory. Both sides of the issue were interviewed for fairness, and I loved the short clips of humor injected here and there, but especially the interview with Dawkins at the very end. It's a must-see for everyone. Even if you don't think it sounds worth your while, you'll be glad you did, or at least rent it when it comes out.

And, just a cute P.S...
Owed To A Spell Chequer
Eye halve a spelling chequer, it came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue, miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word, and weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write, it shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid, it nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite, its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it, I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh, my chequer tolled me sew.

I heard the Christian Radio advertising Expelled today. Our son said that he had seen it and that it was good.

Love your blog! Obvious that you spend a lot more time and attention to yours than I do mine.

You're an excellent writer. Some good thots there.

Trudy and I saw Expelled, too. "Top drawer" movie. Wish everyone could see it.

And thanks for the kind words. Tell Steve I'll get by the house again one of these days, soon.
