Here is a sort of pro-Kerry site(!CAUTION PROFANITY!) Basicly it says John is better than Gdub.
Well. I got my Kidd Tutorial Application done. I'm still excited about the Agent who wants to take a look at my work. I am going to hang out and read in the sun. I just thought I'd reiterate that the draft may be back.

ALSO SYnod sent me a letter!
Big stuff. Charlotte Gusay Literary Agency wants me to send the first 50 pages! WOHOOO
And my final Blog of the day. Here is proof I'm an old and washed up writer. These young wipper snappers are getting the best of me.
This is troubling news. There are at least 2 missing Nuclear fuel rods in the US.
Calling all 20 somethings. There is a lady writing a book about our interaction with the church. She wants people our age to fill out a survey. Here it is. What are you waiting for, fill it out.
Well. I changed it. My blog admits what it is.
I'm getting too political, I admit it. Still, check out this cartoon. I need to get back to "good ol' Lutheran" stuff, or writer stuff, or something else from the top of my blog. Or I could change the top of my blog...

Here are the questions for tonight.
The Questions
1. What is worship? Is it hanging around singing? Is it meeting and greeting? Is it the sermon? What is it?
2. Does the book of Jonah have to be taken literally? Does thinking that Jonah’s three days in a whale’s belly is a literary device make Jesus’ three days in hell/the dead/the grave “fake”?
3. Most Biblical authors didn’t know they were writing scripture. How should that effect the way we read the bible? Does that diminish it in any way?
4. Being that the bible is written way back when in a land far far away how much of it can be taken as a universal and how much only as a cultural thing? For that matter Americans do not live under a king, yet Jesus is referred to as a king. Is the essence of who Jesus is a king, or a “president” meaning we chose him to be our king, or is his kingship over everyone an innate thing?
5. Do animal have souls? Do “all dogs go to heaven?”
6. What does it mean to have “faith” in Jesus, to “believe” in him?
7. Is there a stoic style separation between body and flesh? Paul seems to see things that way, is he right?

Remember how I'm trying to outguess the CIA on where the next terrorist attack is going to be? Well, I'm going to say Britian in July or August.
