A Couple of Small Items September 19, 2008Posted by CapitalSpirit in Uncategorized.
Saw this story on the front page of this morning’s Times. Evidently, a majority of Americans believe they have a guardian angel. And while that’s a traditional teaching of the Catholic Church, it’s less so among mainstream Protestants. In the Protestant churches I’ve attended, angels tended to get short shrift. Even on those rare occasions when they were discussed from the pulpit, the idea of a personal guardian was never mentioned. So for a majority of all Americans to have a belief in a personal guardian angel is somewhat of a surprise, even to me. Baylor’s press release about the study is here, and you can download the actual study in PDF format here. Here’s the weird part: the report itself doesn’t mention any questions about angels, even though that was reported in the Times. What am I missing?
Heard about the rookie game yesterday. Wow, 7-0 Capitals? Are our prospects that good, or are the Flyers’ that bad? I’m guessing it may be some part of both. Disappointed to have missed it, certainly, but I’ve got bills to pay.
I will not be at Training Camp tomorrow: something’s come up, and I’m going to be elsewhere. I do plan on being there en grande tenue on Sunday, however.
Don’t be terribly surprised if you don’t see much from me between now and the preseason opener. I am not going to have much free time for the better part of a week after tonight.
