Friday, October 3, 2008 - Cycle 2 - Day 1

So who watched the debate last night? I thought both candidates did a great job, although each seemed to slip into the media caricatures and both dodged some questions. With all the controversy over Gwen Eiffel as mediator, I thought she did very well. I was looking for the bias that is so blatant in the mainstream media, but I couldn't find any. I thought she was fair and balanced in her questioning. I found Joe Biden rather likeable - Jennifer Granholm did a good job coaching him. Sarah Palin, I thought, appeared much more knowledgeable than we have seen on news interviews. Both were articulate. I would call the debate a tie, but that's just my perspective.

Not much time this morning - will update later - probably much later.

Word of the day
Gospel

Lk 10:13-16
Jesus said to them,
“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida!
For if the mighty deeds done in your midst
had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
they would long ago have repented,
sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon
at the judgment than for you.
And as for you, Capernaum, ‘Will you be exalted to heaven?
You will go down to the netherworld.’
Whoever listens to you listens to me.
Whoever rejects you rejects me.
And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.”

Thoughts from the cornfield:
I guess seeing isnt' always believing - at least in the case of Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum. But then do we always see? How many miracles take place daily in our lives? How many of these miracles do we just take for granted because they are "local?" The rising of the sun each morning, the changing of the seasons, the goodness of the people in our lives - for how much of it do we thank God? Appreciation of the many miracles in our lives - big and small - can truly be an experience of heaven on earth.



God bless the troops!
