Pharisaism

Playing the Pharisee Card

On a bit of a longer drive a fews days ago, I got to do some thinking. My thoughts centered on what transpired at the congregation here and how some in the congregation resorted to calling me a Pharisee. Why? What lies behind such an "insult?"

They Sent it Back

There is this grocery store in town—in fact, they're all over the Pacific Northwest: Grocery Outlet. They sell discounted groceries. The locals call it the "Used Food Store."

All kidding aside, you can find foods and brands found only in certain regions of the country. For instance, we've seen Shur-Fine products there, an upper midwest brand. We've bought Publix-branded frozen spinach; Publix is a southeastern chain of grocery stores.

Then, a couple of days ago, we saw this:

F1 Darlings

Want Proof? Here it is!

In the closing stages of Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix, McLaren's Lewis Hamilton passed Ferrari's Kimi Räikkönen to take the lead. The only problem was that Hamilton cut a corner to do so. Replays showed that in the white-knuckled racing that was going on, Räikkönen forced him out of the corner. According to the rules, any driver who gains position(s) by cutting a corner is to relinquish those positions and continue racing; no harm, no foul. That is exactly what Hamilton did; Räikkönen regained his position and crossed the start-finish line ahead of Hamilton, even going faster than Hamilton, who subsequently passed him again at the first corner. Räikkönen eventually crashed, and wasn't a factor in the finish of the race...well, he wasn't supposed to be.

Just Thought I'd Say

We went to a funeral/memorial service yesterday and, yeah, I'll say it, it sure felt good to be at a Lutheran service in a Lutheran church for the first time in a long time.

A Question

of a Political Nature

So, what does it mean when a former vice presidential candidate from one party speaks at the convention of the other party in favor of their current presidential candidate?

A Little Food for Thought

Regarding Change

This is part of an email I received. I haven't researched any of this to find out if it was true. Some of the things first listed, however, I can clearly remember being true.

That being said, I don't believe President Bush is completely free of blame. The Democratic majority congress isn't either. And I don't believe either majority party presidential candidate/ticket will have an immediate and substantial impact in making things better (though my excitement over the Republican ticket continues to increase, especially since the announcement of Gov. Palin as the vice presidential candidate).
