go to rzim.org (or "raviji" to the right) and sign thyself up for "a slice of infinity"

thought one:
"Faith, wherever it develops into hope, causes not rest but unrest, not patience, but impatience. It does not calm the unquiet heart, but is itself this unquiet heart in man. Those who hope in Christ can no longer put up with reality as it is, but begin to suffer under it, to contradict it. Peace with God means conflict with the world, for the good of the promised future stabs inexorably into the flesh of every unfulfilled present."
Jurgen Moltmann, Theology of Hope (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 1993), 21\

i think, technically, i'm not supposed to reproduce any part of the "slices" online... but it's a quote, so maybe i can get away with it... just this once?

No puede el mundo ser mi hogar
No puede el mundo ser mi hogar
En gloria tengo mi Senor
No puede el mundo ser mi hogar

Thought two: from an interview (not my own)
"His [Chavez's] enemies are imperialism and capitalism. But how, I ask, can he ignore the tide of globalisation? I am a socialist, he says, and I follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, who was the first socialist, just as Judas was the first capitalist. "

Thought three:
Who wouldn't think that Islam would make a good 6th grade thematic unit? My instructional design professor, that's who!
