The Bee Stings the Spiritually Uninvolved Dad

Saying he appears content with his lack of motivation to teach his children essential spiritual truths, sources confirmed that local father Robert Mosher is just going to keep assuming that his two children are learning all the important stuff in Sunday School.

“Nah, I don’t think we to do any, like, devotionals or anything like that—I’m sure they’re learning all the big stuff in Sunday School,” Mosher is said to have awkwardly told his wife Wednesday evening as he sat in his living room chair, catching up on SportsCenter, before reminding her how uncomfortable that sort of thing is for him and how wiped out he is by the time he gets home from work. “They’re teaching them all sorts of stuff about God, Jesus, the Bible, salvation—all of it, I’m sure. All the really serious stuff, at least,” he uneasily continued. “Did you see that sweet picture of Jesus Jeannie colored a couple Sundays ago? I mean, that right there tells you something.”

The nervous 36-year-old then abruptly changed the subject, according to sources, who relayed that he seems more interested even in small, trivial things than he is about intentionally mentoring his children in vital spiritual matters. Pressed by his wife as to whether he would at least have regular prayer time with the children, Mosher reportedly reminded her how “weird” it makes him feel to pray in front of people.

Good job, Dad.  Show your kids how little faith matters…

I Pray To God He Didn’t Do It. He Probably Did It.

A Union University student has pleaded not guilty after being accused of soliciting four minors for sexual activity while he was working as a youth ministry intern at a Jackson church.  News outlets report that 21-year-old Heath Ransom appeared in Madison County Circuit Court on Tuesday to enter a plea of not guilty to 27 counts, including 13 counts of solicitation of a minor and 13 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Ransom served as a youth intern at Englewood Baptist Church until the church investigated accusations of inappropriate activity over six days in late April and early May. The church dismissed Ransom at the investigation’s conclusion and notified police. He was arrested June 27. Ransom is next scheduled to appear in court Aug. 8.

I pray he didn’t do it.  Given the sexualization of our society, it’s probable that he did it.  Still, I pray he didn’t.  And for his victims if they are.  And for the church that trusted him that probably shouldn’t have.

I really sometimes wish that persons given to being predators would take literally Paul’s advice to the Galatians and Οφελον καὶ ἀποκόψονται (Gal. 5:12).  Let those with ears, hear.

Zurich’s Great Minster

Via Refo500

Das Wahrzeichen von Zürich ist das Grossmünster. Die Legende sagt, die Kirche steht auf der einstigen Grabstätte der Stadtheiligen Felix und Regula. Der Legende nach entdeckte Karl der Grosse an der heutigen Stelle des Grossmünsters die Gräber der Stadtheiligen Felix und Regula und liess eine erste Kirche als Chorherrenstift errichten.

In der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts wurde das Grossmünster zum Ausgangspunkt der deutschschweizerischen Reformation unter Huldrych Zwingli und Heinrich Bullinger. Die damals dem Stift angeschlossene theologische Schule wurde zur Keimzelle der Zürcher Universität.

Das Glasfenster von Sigmar Polke, die romanische Krypta, Chorfenster von Augusto Giacometti, Bronzetüren von Otto Münch sowie das Reformationsmuseum im Kreuzgang sind nur einige Höhepunkte, die es im Grossmünster zu bestaunen gibt.

Im Grossmünster finden regelmässig Kirchenmusik-Konzerte statt. Mehr
