Book thread! Book thread!
Alas, no time to read post or comments @now.
A spiritually oriented medley in electric and acoustic versions.
Four new recordings of original songs, of lost love, hard times, faith, insecurity, and spiritual regeneration. Plus a touch of humor.
Six more original songs of love, faith, fear, and fun
Six songs of betrayal, lost love, sogginess, and silliness, for your entertainment and enlightenment.
ALH #140: Nice painting, if historically inaccurate. Jesus didn't make alcoholic wine, he made what was known as "new wine" or grape juice....
bluebell #127: I suspect we are looking at that moment in time right before the miraculous wine is handed round. That's why Jesus looks so pensive; He knows that This Is It.
troyriser #100: I see nowhere in Scripture where Jesus, in a rare moment of whimsy, transports the entire wedding party to the 16th Century.
Just clicked on the pic and examined the bigger version up close. Nobody is smiling and some people look positively sour-pussed. I conclude this is before they rolled out the good wine.
Cana - it was one heck of a party, especially after they rolled out the better wine.
Stepping into the deep dog doo here... (Burt, some of us "overthinkers" need to think it through thoroughly.)
...and that is how John lost his dome?
...That Herod was really a gnome?
...a limerick ain't a real pome?

There was a young gal named Salome,
Who danced for her daddy at home.
Her daddy, quite pickled,
By her dance was tickled...
Unfinished limericks, 15¢

Thanks for another inciteful [sic] book post, pimp daddy O'Muse.
I finished a whole book. Wasn't easy. But I did.
It costs too much for alcohol
But it costs 'way more for pot,
or LSD, or cocaine,
especially if you're caught.
Agent Cooper: The kind and loving God I was taught about would NEVER do an awful thing like this.
bebe's boobs destroy #278: Jesus made more wine for the wedding...
Having had a steady stream of dark and intense video dramas lately, I needed a change of pace.
Attended a funeral yesterday. While waiting for the service to begin, I was reading Luke from the Bible available in front of me. New revised standard, or something.
This is only book-related by tying in with the Gospels, but it's Easter, and later in the thread, and our host announced he was off to church, so... from a comment I made on the ONT:
Happy Easter back atcha, FenelonSpoke.
Just noticed my hash contains verboten phrase i-m-g, so when quoted back it comes out 7___O - never saw that one before.
Morning, glorious fellow offspring of our Creator!
Here's what Milady and I were watching instead of my reading all your lovely comments tonight:
The book thread commentary is always amazing and inspiring.
Darth Randall: Thanks for the mini-review. Good to know. Been thinking of actually venturing into the theater for it, despite my disgust with dealing with the General Public.
FenelonSpoke: Railing at God is an expression of faith too; It's throughout the Bible. Even Jesus said "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?
