Sunday Evening Observation

While driving home this afternoon, I was switching between radio stations and happened to hear the tagline of a Christian radio station. It was "Lifting Up Jesus in Central (state where I was driving)". I would have facepalmed if I hadn't been driving. Instead, I laughed. Lifting up Jesus? Really? Like WE can do that? Uh, wasn't He lifted up on the cross?

Discuss the lack of Christ-centered theology in this country, if you're so inclined.

Or do as I did, and change the station to the heathen top-40, and bemoan the lack of taste in American pop music.

I'm off to read City of God and The Fire And The Staff. Again. (Thanks again for the latter, J!) And listen to some Bach.


  1. City of God? Isn't that written by some crazy Catholic?

  2. Are you calling Saint Augustine crazy? He was many things, but crazy was not one of them. :)

  3. At my cousin Monica's funeral, the children's choir sang a song titled "City of God." It was beautiful. I've heard it sung since, but not as well as they did it.

    P.S. St. Augustine's mother was St. Monica. Coincidence? I think not.

    P.P.S. St. Monica is my fave female saint right after St. Mary. Monica had a wayward son who turned out to be a pretty good guy. St. Mary had a son who was a carpenter. Hmmm. Mommys sure do love their sons.
