From the Rocky Mountains

Our regular readers (!) may be wondering why we haven't posted anything on this blog for awhile. Well, at least part of the explanation may be that three of us are currently up in the Rocky Mountains enjoying some camping and hiking. So sorry for the lack of new entries. I don't have time to write much now, but I did find one thing worth recommending while I was browsing recent magazines in the library the other day. Bill McKibben has a nice article in the latest issue of Harper's Magazine. You can read a lengthy excerpt here. For the whole article, look here. Given the recent (and justifiable) uproar over Pat Robertson's insane remarks about killing the democratically elected leader of Venezuela, it is refreshing to read something from a fellow Christian that makes sense!

Thanks for sharing that. It's interesting to try to figure out the government's role in all of this; after all, Jesus was talking about individuals loving their neighbors. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if people were voting against progressive legislation but also giving much of what they had away. Of course, there's no indication that this has happened.

Those are hard commandments. No wonder people ignore them.
