*tapping the microphone* Testing … test … check … check.
Is this thing on?
Some of you know me, others do not. I speak to both. I am a relative newcomer to Theology Kung-fu; but, then again, it doesn’t appear to have existed very long either. So, there you are. Many thanks to the sensei for giving me posting and commenting privileges. Between this and a few other blogging … There’s more to read here.
This week marks the release of Bruce Springsteen’s latest CD – “Devils and Dust.” The CD marks the completion of a trilogy of acoustic albums dating back over 20 years to the landmark album from 1982 “Nebraska” (one of my desert island discs) and the 1995 “The Ghost of Tom Joad.” “Devils and Dust” roams around the southwest border lands of the US and seems haunted by … There’s more to read here.
