Adults and Adolescents

John Barach over at Kata Iwannhn posted a thoughtful piece about how the church perpetuates immaturity, especially in her young men. We need to sit up and listen. Check it out here.

I am a Scot

January 31, 2007

My name is Alan Brown Stout Jr. My paternal grandmother was born Mary Brown in 1912 in the town of North Berwick Scotland into the proud Clan MacMillan. She immigrated here with her parents when she was a young girl. She married my grandfather, English bloodlines, long settled in America. They were the personification of the Acts of 1707.

The diverse folks at MereComments (link to the right) have tipped me off to the possible dissolution of said Acts. Long live Scotland! FREEDOM! (No disrespect to Poppy)

Resting

January 26, 2007

The folks at TeamPyro are taking a break.  Phil, may I offer you a bit of Puritan Poetry to calm those frayed nerves?

What Love is this of thine, that Cannot bee
In thine Infinity, O Lord, Confinde,
Unless it in thy very Person see,
Infinity, and Finity Conjoyn’d?
What hath thy Godhead, as not satisfide
Marri’de our Manhood, making it its Bride?

Oh, Matchless Love! filling Heaven to the brim!
O’re running it: all running o’re beside
This World! Nay Overflowing Hell; wherein
For thine Elect, there rose a mighty Tide!
That there our Veans might through thy Person bleed,
To quench those flames, that else would on us feed.

Oh! that thy Love might overflow my Heart!
To fire the same with Love: for Love I would.
But oh! my streight’ned Breast! my Lifeless Sparke!
My Fireless Flame! What Chilly Love, and Cold?
In measure small! In Manner Chilly! See.
Lord blow the Coal: Thy Love Enflame in mee.
