In case you didn't gather it, the note above was scrawled and pinned to my desk with Cap'n Salty's dagger. Cap'n always talks in capitals. He says he isn't yelling, just shouting for joy. I'm not sure about that, but he always talks in capitals.
Among the other comments on the Monday Morning Insight post I saw that some enthusiastic person was going to use these ideas of wonderment in his Christmas series in church.
What are we doing when we turn to Conan O'Brian and his guests (this one is quite funny) for theological insight? Where's the Bible? What's the message of Advent and Christmas? The message is that our Lord is coming for judgment and redemption. It isn't that physics is really neat.
Despite the hectic pace of the next few weeks I hope to be posting regularly on my Alex Kirk blog as we walk through lectionary readings for Advent.
