My text today is 1 Samuel 16:7a, which, for the purposes of today’s blog, I will render as, “A man looketh on the outward appearance.” My sense is that men who look only on the outward appearance are probably jerks, but men who don’t look at all on the outward appearance are missing this picture of Liv Tyler.

Here is all you need to know to follow this blog. I am an old man and I love to think about why we say the things we do. I've taught at the elementary, secondary, collegiate, and doctoral levels. I don't think one is easier than another. They are hard in different ways. I have taught political science for a long time and have practiced politics in and around the Oregon Legislature. I don't think one is easier than another. They are hard in different ways.
You'll be seeing a lot about my favorite topics here. There will be religious reflections (I'm a Christian) and political reflections (I'm a Democrat) and a good deal of whimsy. I'm a dilettante.
