Christians and Their Tattoos | Kevin Garcia on getting inked for Jesus

I’m just going to say something that you can disagree with, but just know that if you do, I will probably call you a square:

Tattoos are awesome.

I love tattoos. I have them, at least 90% of my close friends have tattoos, one of my pastors has tattoos. Heck, 45 million Americans have tattoos! Tattoos are great, and if you disagree, I would like to lay hands on you and pray the spirit of legalism…

Our environmental problems, moreover, are not, at root, political; they are cultural. As Edward Abbey knows and has been telling us, our country is not being destroyed by bad politics; it is being destroyed by a bad way of life. Bad politics is merely another result.
—  Wendell Berry, What are People For?
There are, it seems, two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say “It is yet more difficult than you thought.” This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.

Doctor Who needs a show runner with a bit more imagination

Peter Capaldi may be the best pure actor to ever take on the role of Doctor Who. I cannot think of a single film where I couldn’t find a role for him somewhere. He has shown a remarkable ability to take on a wide variety of roles and own them all.

Stephen Moffat however is, and has always been, a problem. Despite the remarkable job he has done with Sherlock and the brilliant scripts he wrote in…
