Friday Stream of Consciousness – 110

Here’s what’s on my mind this Friday morning: Last week, four people were baptized into Christ at NVC. I never get tired of baptisms. Sports Talk Radio is becoming more and more like listening to political talk radio. Piers Morgan was canceled. Who could have seen that coming? Most people. An 11-year-old girl shot and killed a Mountain Lion that was stalking her brother. Wow. It was just a short time after her 9-year-old brother had...

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 26

Here are some things I’m thinking about this Friday morning: I read recently of a new sound machine that plays Darth Vader breathing for up to ten hours. No offense to the inventor–humorous idea. As for me putting my kid down to one of those–or sleeping to it myself…no thanks. It’ll be interesting to see how people who sleep to Vader’s hot breath turn out. In my opinion as a parent 3 times around...
