…from Confessions of a Carioca: I confess, there are a couple of these that I don’t get, but what I do get is very funny. Theology Exam Questions You may answer all or some of the following questions. Please turn in your answers before picking up your diploma. 1. Is there such a thing as [...]
Leaving aside the obvious “diversity”, “inclusion”, “listening” and “conversation”: “birth” as a verb. We are constantly “birthing” things in church: I wish we wouldn’t. “disrespect” as a verb.

At least, I think it’s a congratulation. With Frank, it can be hard to tell. Frank appears most interested in Rev Hawkins’s lineage: His late father George Hawkins was [...]
As an Ottawan, living through day 50 (!!!!!) of a bus drivers strike (and daydreaming of locking the mayor and the union head in a room with no food and water till they work it out), I found this item from the ANiC newsletter particularly funny: In response to the recent British atheists’ campaign of [...]
