Two things on my mind
by Andrea Elizabeth
I wonder if all people have either dream jobs, dream relationships, dream homes, dream bodies, or dream pets (hesitating to put dream parishes in this list). Maybe some even have all of them at once. The rest have to toil to at least maintain the less dreamy ones. Welcome to the real, but temporally necessary world.
The third episode, A Nation Reborn, of God in America, presents the most insightful (meaning I agree with them) explanation of the Civil War that I have ever heard. Rather than the war being started because of slavery or state’s rights, it was about who people think God sides with, and how they think he treats those who aren’t on his side, which in both cases was pretty brutally.
