Alan Brandy is up and running again with his new blog here:

Dr Stephen Cook has done a fine job with this month's Biblical Studies Carnival.

Brant and Liz Pitre welcomed their fourth child, Mary Beth, into the world. Many congratulations to both of you!

Well, there is so much more to link to but I'm really not very good at listing that sort of thing. Instead, I leave you with a word of wisdom for your Sunday.

Have you ever had to leave a sermon just before the end of the service because you desperately needed the toilet?

Sure you have.

However, have you also found that at the end of the service, a number of older folk tend to make a beeline to the loo and that they get a bit grumpy that it is blocked by your own good backside?

If so, my advice in a nutshell: Leave the toilet door unlocked so that when they burst in and open the door all unfriendly they are forced to see you crapping, then next time they may think twice about being so after-sermon-loo-territorial.

With this, Chrisendom herby moves sensitively into the world of pastoral advice on ecclesial conduct.

All this talk of faith in the latrine--are you sure you're not Lutheran? Isn't that where Luther had his "breakthrough" to justification by faith?

Are you suggesting that defecation is the best revenge?

Michael, I do quite a bit of reading on the pot. OK, that was too much information.

Jim, I admit that I had to look "defecation" up. "Defecation is the act or process by which organisms eliminate solid or semisolid waste material (feces) from the digestive tract via the anus"
And yes.
