The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

Thanks, Brad!


The L.A. Times is reporting that Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to the campaign to defeat Proposition 8 (the proposed California constitutional amendment that would write marriage discrimination into the state constitution after the state supreme court declared such discrimination unconstitutional).

From the L.A. Times article:
Brad Pitt announced Wednesday that he's donating $100,000 to fight California's Proposition 8, a November ballot initiative that would eliminate same-sex couples' right to marry.

"Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8," the actor said in a statement.

The campaign for marriage equality has been interesting to follow. Just last week, the bishops of the Episcopal dioceses in California stood together to oppose Proposition 8 and in support of marriage equality. Though the bishops presented different opinions on how the church should be involved in same-sex marriage, they stood in unison declaring that civil discrimination must be opposed by the church.
