Granger: A CROSS-EYED LOOK AT THE WHOLE EASTER THING – 3/31/18

That early in the morning, I knew Jimmie’s Diner would be almost empty.  That worked for me.  I was in a mood.  And I was almost right.  Other than the cook in back, Peggy Sue was by herself. Solitude must be a comfortable friend if one intends to write.  I enjoyed the closeness of the friends … Continue reading »

QTMs for Good Friday, 3/30/18: HANG IT ON THE CROSS

I think it all comes down to motivation.  If you really want to do something, you will work hard for it. ~Edmund Hillary Jesus meant to go through with it. He was aiming through that Cross, focusing on everything beyond it.  Everything Mark, Matthew, Luke, John and Paul wrote about makes it clear:  Jesus, Mary’s son, raised … Continue reading »

QTMs, 2/21/17: YEAH, I DID, TOO.

One of the few things a religious zealot accomplishes is to reassure those he’s trying to convince that they want nothing to do with him or whatever model of Jesus he’s peddling. We are moving into the Lenten season, the lead-up to Easter Sunday.  I know you know that.  Easter bunnies, dancing eggs and fake grass is … Continue reading »
