Season after Pentecost, 2023
heard yesterday evening at Evensong:
There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; indeed, star differs from star in glory.
So it is with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a physical body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body. Thus it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual that is first, but the physical, and then the spiritual. The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. As was the man of dust, so are those who are of the dust; and as is the man of heaven, so are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we will also bear the image of the man of heaven.
What I am saying, brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
1 Corinthians 15:41-50 (NRSV)

Apologies for infrequent posting.
The computer that Sinden.org took to the shop has since been stolen from said shop. We are in the process of obtaining a new primary machine, and semi-regular posting will resume with its arrival.
Thank you for your patience (particularly with this site's errant color).
Today, my printed copy of the New York Times contained the following:
"Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic," Mr. Carville said, referring to Easter.
Wrong. Easter is not the day that Christians celebrate Judas's betrayal of his teacher, Jesus.
But the online version of First a Tense Talk With Clinton, Then Richardson Backs Obama has changed. It now reads:
"Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic," Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week.
So the "day" James Carville is referring to is "Holy Week". That makes a lot of sense.
Why can't we let James Carville's words stand for themselves? Why do we have to let the New York Times clarify what he was talking about.
I am a bit miffed that the Times doesn't indicate that the current online article is a corrected version. Apparently these kinds of religious snafus are not worth mentioning, or getting right.
Here, for the benefit of the New York Times are some other things Carville might have been referring to when he mentions Judas's betrayal:
Two logos are seen. The first was used until from 1989-1996, and the second from 1996 onward.
Wait for the second one. It's worth it.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx a movie she's embarrassed to admit she was watching -- and let's face it, I would be too if it started out like that)

Elsewhere: Don't miss this great review of such a restaurant.
I just realized that this does combine two of my favorite things: organs and food. Why is it that I've never been to one of these places?
Recent research by the staff of Sinden.org (mostly conducted through teh internets) has determined that number of extant stations of the cross exceeds the canonical 14.
