  • Every summer, the Christian Bookseller's Association has a huge trade show where book publishers and sellers of religious gifts congregate and attempt to ply their wares to owners of Christian bookstores and gift shops.

    It's been a few years since I attended one, and even though this year's show was in nearby Orlando, I was out of town and didn't go.

    Consequently, I missed one of the most exquisitely enjoyable aspects of this trade show - the rows of Christian witness items, snarkily referred to by the publishing side of the building as "Jesus junk alley."

  • Today is a holy day. Some churches designate certain days as holy days of obligation, which (I think) means obligatory attending of services on days you otherwise wouldn't.

    But today, for me at least, is a holy day of non-obligation, of free will and pleasure.

    It's raining, although that doesn't particularly make it holy. It does help, however. At least today. At least that's what I think.

  • To hold the destiny of another human being in your hand - to the extent that one can - is a humbling thing.

    Last week I served my first jury duty.

    Although I'm free to talk about the details of the case, I'm choosing not to. The details aren't relevant to the point I want to make.

    Before the trial, I joked with my friends that I had been practicing.

    "Guilty!" I'd yell and jab my finger in the air. "Off with their heads!"

    I didn't think it would be all that difficult to come to a decision about the case. Yes or no. Guilty or not guilty.
