Saturday Ramblings 5.22.10

Thanks to Adam Palmer for filling in for me last week as I was away. But now I have returned from the wilderness … of the Colorado Rockies. Not the baseball team, but the actual mountains. It snowed more than a foot where I was. Do they understand the concept of springtime in Colorado? We […]

Update From The Publisher

Occasionally I need to step out from behind the publisher’s desk and visit with those who matter the most: you all, our readers. Well, I don’t actually sit behind a desk, unless you count the table I often commandeer at Cafe Fusion in Tulsa my desk. But I think you know what I mean. I […]

First Place? You Bet…

Update: I just found out that I will have advance copies of Michael Spencer’s Mere Churchianity to give to each one who attends this fun event. You will get a free book two days before its official release date. How cool is that? Be sure to email me by June 1 if you are planning […]

Sure…Bring Your Glove!

Update: I can now mention one of the surprises I allude to below. Our very own First Lady, Denise Spencer, will be joining us, along with her daughter and son-in-law, Noel and Ryan Cordle. Worship, baseball, great food and a chance to visit with the IM’s First Lady. Don’t miss it! There is still time […]

Saturday Ramblings 5.8.10

Greetings from the iMonastery where things have really gone to the dogs. So it is time to grab a plastic bag and proceed to clean up the yard. Yes, it’s Saturday Ramblings, the pooper-scooper of the Internet Monk community. A 1,000 year flood (the kind of flood that only comes along once a millennia) hit […]

Walking Barefoot

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger bringing good news, Breaking the news that all’s well, proclaiming good times, announcing salvation, telling Zion, “Your God reigns!” Isaiah 52:7, The Message (This is the second part of a two-part essay. You can read part one here.) My feet are killing me–and it’s […]

The World’s Worst Feet

The worst feet in the world undoubtedly belonged to St. Francis of Assisi. Francis walked miles everyday throughout the region of Italy where he and his followers preached the Gospel. He walked on broken rock, bare dirt, ice, snow, and thorny weeds each day–in his bare feet. His feet were a mass of bloody wounds, […]

A Day At The Ol’ Ballyard

Update: Several people have let me know, through the comments and in emails directly to me ( that they want to come, but the cost is a bit too high. I have found a way to get the cost down to $99. The seats will not be quite as good, but they are not in […]

Saturday Ramblings 5.1.10

Welcome to our weekly effort to tidy up here at the Internet Monk. We have some leftovers and tidbits that need to be put away, so bear with us as we do some light housekeeping. N. T. Wright will retire as Bishop of Durham (England) this summer to take a position at St. Andrews in […]

Walking On The Moon

I am a geek when it comes to the Wright Brothers and manned space flight, as much of this history goes through Dayton, Ohio (near where I was born and raised) and vicinity. I have several dozen books on Wilbur and Orville as well as the space program. I consider going to the Air Force […]
