If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.

1 John 4:20 (NIV)

From the Sears Tower at late dusk. What a road grid!


From the Hancock building


Chicago from the John Hancock building

View from the Hancock building looking along Lakeshore Drive and Lake Michigan

View from "Big John" the John Hancock building looking off towards the Sears Tower.

View of the Chicago river and downtown Chicaaaagooo!

How'd you like to get "footed" by a female Harpy eagle? Any takers? Lifesize toes/hallux/talons!


View of the dolphin pool at the Chicago Aquarium, Lake Michigan in the background.


View of Chicago skyline across Lake Michigan from the Museum campus.

Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
John 6:29 (NIV)


Overgrown (there's alot of these) glade on Clark mountain.
"Now" is the time to reward Terrorism...

Soooo says Condi Rice. Time to give Hamas the beginning of what it wants.. a state to occupy. Why is it that the Bush admin is going down the same path as its predecessors. Is Israel the 51st state or something? Let Israel deal with it.

What would a clean-shaven Mahmoud look like?.... here he is...

Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:2 (NIV)


Overgrown glade on the east side of Clark mountain.
It's all Islam's! Or so says Mahmoud Abbas' aide.

Islam rules the world....(talk about the ultimate replacement theology) The wailing/western wall of the Jewish (Solomon/Herod) temple actually belongs to the Islamic world. Did you know that?

And in fact, according to the "moderate".. cough cough cough... and fellow denier of the holocaust (we don't meet with another Mahmoud...) Mahmoud Abbas' aide...

"Adnan Husseini, aide to the Palestinian Authority president, said Thursday that Palestinian demands for Israel to cede eastern Jerusalem under any peace accord also includes the Western Wall.

"This is part of Islamic heritage that cannot be given up, and it must be under Muslim control," Husseini told Israel's NRG Web site, adding that all of Jerusalem's Old City should be part of a future Palestinian state..."


Bah! King David is rolling in his grave. What hubris, chutzpa, arrogance. But, the world's media yawns.

I've got a solution... Israel... keep what is the Jew's inheritance and history. Oh yeah, muslims... you can have Mecca and Medina.. Jews and Christians have no interest there whatsoever! So why don't you just leave us and our Holy sites alone. Remember Joseph's tomb?...Exactly, remember it? Ahem.
Somalia... not for Christians?

"somalia is for somali muslims and there is no way somali christian converts can in there its our duty to murder or kill them Allaah willing there won't be christians in our country in few years time christian mission on somalia seems to be "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE"

sent to the Voice of the Martyrs.

Sad...Do they have internet in Somalia?
Today's Iran-Daily cartoon


How nice... except it seems to me that the "camera" that Iran is using seems more like a missile.


Looking to the east over Clark mountain rhyolite. Note the dry conditions, amazing that the trees find enough water in these rocky areas.
Rami Ayaad... We won't forget you...



Rami was murdered in Gaza as he was walking out of his Christian bookstore. May God help his family. What is martyrdom? Is it killing or is it suffering while trying to save people? I don't know what persecution is... no one in America truly knows it. God be with us all. Why the fear of religious plurality?

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16 (NIV)

Looking the east, northeast from Clark Mountain.
Pootie grabs the reins...

"President Vladimir Putin said yesterday he would lead Russia's largest party's ticket in December parliamentary elections and suggested he could become prime minister, the strongest indication yet that he will seek to retain power after stepping down as president early next year."

Shocking.... The Old School Tyrant (OST) (well except for the death camps...) consolidates his power.

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners -- of whom I am the worst.
1 Timothy 1:15 (NIV)


Exposed ryholite/glade on Clark mountain.
May God help the Iraqi Christians....

"Islamic militants are increasingly targeting Christians, especially here in the capital, forcing an exodus that has cut deeply into the long-standing minority community.

Although meaningful numbers are hard to come by, the last Iraqi census, conducted in 1987, counted 1 million Christians. National aid groups estimate between 300,000 and 600,000 Christians remain today among an estimated 25 million people."

The world yawns at the Islamist thuggery.
