But What About The Third Sunday Of Advent?

Well you might ask!

Blogger ate it.

And before I was able to reconstruct my masterful essay of the Peaceable Kingdom and looking within ourselves for those places that keep this vision from being manifested I turned on the television and found myself staring at one of those dark places.

There is a rage that swells up within me at times and spills out in very, VERY colorful language. Its is a rage that is largely confined to a certain politician and his various ideological hangers-on, these days - although it has been known to extend to dangerously stupid people at large.

I know that I am called to see the Christ in my fellow humans.

All of 'em.

That is the truly scary part of the image of the Peaceable Kingdom.

It's not just a pretty picture on a card or a banner.

It's a challenge.

Everyone, Remember Where We Parked!!

Did your last trip to the mega-mall down the way leave you cold?

Do you long for the days when a shopping center was a shopping center and a mall was a mall?

Do you miss Christmas shopping at the mall of your childhood?

Check out this site for some yummy retro malls.

(Can't you just hear the Muzak? )
