The Shape of Things to Come

If you've been following this blog, you no doubt know of my other two blogs:  Culinary Cluelessness and The Rules of Grace.  For several years now, I've attempted to write at least one post a week for each of these three blogs.  Frankly, I can't keep up with it anymore.

But more than that, my life is not compartmentalized.  As Jesus invades more and more of my life, my interests become more and more grace-centric.  In other words, I can't sit and write about only Christianity, or only cooking, or only mythology, changing gears and thought-processes as I go.  All three of them are vastly interconnected.  So over the next few weeks and months, I'm going to work on reshaping and consolidating all three of these blogs into one sort of catch-all blog that will deal with mythology, but also Christianity, cooking, and general musings on various topics. 


Stay tuned.

The Cat and the Cock

One day a Cat caught a Rooster, determined to make a fine meal of the bird.  However, the Cat asked the Rooster what defense he might give for his actions of crowing each night. 


"I do this in service of Man," the Rooster replied, "so that He might know when it is time to work." 


"That is a poor excuse," the Cat cried.  "Your foolishness will not save you from becoming my breakfast!"  And the Cat ate the Rooster right up.


No defense will protect the innocent from an unjust judgment.
