The Perseverance Landing and the Shake in Her Voice (LSP #180)

Reading Time: 5 minutes And something has had me smiling all day today: the shake in the voice of the NASA announcer who narrated the landing. That shake speaks to the human condition like almost nothing else could, and in the doing it destroys so many claims made by Christians. Today, Lord Snow Presides over the glories of reality, and how that is more than enough for growing numbers of us.

Reading Time: 10 minutes The denizens of broken systems tend to take very poorly to critics outside the group–and even more poorly to dissenters within it.

Reading Time: 8 minutes Our journey into both love and that happy land of books you really should have read by now and if you haven’t, then you should definitely consider it continues today with The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle. In this book, the author plays with narratives about love. He gently teases them, toys with them, and ultimately honors them.
