My heart became hot within me. As I mused, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: "O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!"

An online audio Bible in Greek...

...and Hebrew


If you read any cultural-political commentary, you should read Peggy Noonan. Her last two posts (one on President Bush, one on 9/11) have been outstanding.

Music I've been digging lately:

Frustration and laughter at the same time: Purgatorio, taking aim at the evangelical church. And while we're at it, here's Lark News.


Finally, what can we say?

Peggy Noonan's article on the upcoming election was spot on. Not necessarily the prediction (that will still depend somewhat on how the White House decides to behave over the next few weeks), but in her analysis of the Democrat's problem.

It is a constant source of frustration to me that the Democratic Party refuse to take up the moral arguments that are right in front of them. On abortion, poverty, terrorism, and so forth, the Republicans take strong, definable moral positions. The Democrats, meanwhile, wallow in words like "choice", "balance", and "diversity." It's not that those aren't aren't great sentiments. They're super, but they don't mean anything. Anyone can use them (and everybody does). Their slipperiness undermines their ability to affect specific change.

The moral arguments are there for the Democrats on these issues. They're available. But the party as a whole refuses to develop them consistently (as though they could somehow be all things to all people). And this leads to the nomination of candidates like John Kerry, whose non-existent platforms ("Did you notice how I'm NOT George Bush?") make me want to skip out on voting altogether.

Those were great columns by Peggy Noonan, especially near the end when she sizes up the Dems. As the previous commenter said, it's spot on.

Her column on 9/11 was very moving.

I am pretty confident that the audio Hebrew Bible is just a recording of me reading in Hebrew Class in Seminary.

There is a pastor coming into the RPCNA from a different denomination, and it looks like he will move here to State College for at least a few years to learn about the RPCNA. Anyway, one of the concerns was that he hasn't had any Hebrew, so I have assured those concerned that he will be able to pick it up quickly since all the Scripture readings here at Grace are done in the original languages, since one of my goals is always to avoid the use of vulgar language in the pulpit.
