Mormons are “Marginal Christians”

Just prior to General Conference, Utah Valley University hosted a Mormon Studies Conference titled “The Expanding Canon”.  I wish I could have attended more of the sessions, but enjoyed the sessions I attended.  I was surprised that the LDS Instituted of Religion hosted one of the sessions.  I attended Institute when I was in college, […]

I’m Back!

Sorry I’ve been gone so long.  A severe server crash caused my website to be unavailable for quite some time, but thanks to my brother, we were able to resurrect most of my posts and comments.  Many of my photos have disappeared, and I’ll try to add those as I get to them.  Anyway, thanks […]

Q&A with Terryl and Fiona Givens

What a week!  I had the pleasure of attending sessions with both Ron Paul and Terryl Givens.  Now I have to choose whether to write about Ron Paul, or Terryl Givens.  Tough choice.  Given that political discussions often devolve into ideological (and often irrational) arguments, I’m just not in the mood for Ron Paul this […]

Where are you Greenland?

I’ve had Google Analytics installed since June 2009.  In that time, I’ve had visits from all over the world.  The largest (by land mass) country that has never visited my site is Greenland.  Obviously I’m not a big hit there.  So, if you have a friend in Greenland, tell them I’d love to welcome them […]
