Hello, imonks, and welcome to the weekend. Shall we Ramble? There is some annoyingly serious stuff we need to cover this week.

Saturday Ramblings, May 23, 2015: Memorial Day Edition Greetings iMonks.

Hello, Imonks, and welcome to the weekend. Ready to Ramble? Of course the big news in religion this week was the release of a new Pew study on American religion. However, Mike Bell had a post about that yesterday and will have another one next Friday, so I will leave that in his capable hands. […]
