"Our" president caught in a lie

I can't not comment on this, given the other posts that I've made on the subject.

Nothing to see here. Move along now. These are not the droids you're looking for.

Exodus 17:8-16 and Exodus 18
I like that we have two different instances of Moses having to ask for help in order to carry out God's mission. In chapter 17, he needs the physical strength of Aaron and Hur to help him hold the staff up, while in chapter 18 he needed to delegate the duties of judging disputes. I know I'm one who doesn't like to ask for help. Guess I've got a lesson or two to learn.

Matthew 22
Verses 8-10 stood out for me:

8 Then he [the host] said to his slave, "The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 9 Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.' 10 Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. (NRSV, emphasis mine)

I'm confused

OK. So, apparently, there's a big controversy going on about the movie, "The End of the Spear" because the person who plays a leading role in it, Chad Allen, is gay, as well as being an activist for gay rights. Now, I haven't seen the movie (nor do I have any particular plans to see it) so take this all with a large grain of salt.

Hurrah for librarians!

According to this article, a librarian in a public library near Boston refused to allow FBI agents to take the library's computers without a proper search warrant. (That looks like a temporary URL, since you normally have to subscribe to read this publication's content. So the link may not work by the time you try to read it.)

BlogWatcher news

I'm starting to get a few BlogWatcher subscribers whom I don't know personally (yeah!) So I've made a few "tweaks."

(Very liberal points of view about to be expressed. You have been warned. ;) )

I must admit that I've always had a problem with a portion of today's reading. Specifically, Matthew 21:18-22.

Brian McLaren responds

I know that Wendy posted an article about this in her blog, but I saw this today, which is a response by Brian McLaren to all of the controversy stirred up by his original comments.

(I'm trying out a new posting tool. We'll see how this works)

I've always liked the "workers in the vineyard" story. We get such a tight focus on what's "fair" that we forget what's "just." The early workers received a just wage for their efforts. By our standards (and apparently those of Jesus' time as well) it wasn't "fair." No doubt today the vineyard owner would be sued for discrimination or unfair labor practices.
