Bush Walks on Water

by Steve Ray on July 31, 2006

wind.jpgThe Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Bush takes him out for an afternoon cruising on the Presidential yacht. They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.

Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but President Bush waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry."

Bush then steps off the yacht, walks across the water to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over, picks it up, and then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.

The next morning, the headlines in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Detroit Free Press, Atlanta Constitution, Washington Post, Boston Herald, Buffalo News, Houston Chronicle, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times, and San Francisco Chronicle all proclaim:

"Bush Can't Swim!"

Does God Exist? How to Argue Convincingly!

Does God Really Exist? How to Argue Convincingly!
by Steve's daughter Cindy (Ray) Brown

GodsFinger.bmpSince the dawn of time people have sought to answer the big questions: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?

Can any of these questions really be answered? A classic example of these questions is expressed in Gauguin’s painting entitled, “Whence, What, and Whither?”  No honest person can ignore these questions and still consider himself thoughtful.

 In the area of life and existence, and how life came into being, there are only three possible explanations of origins. 1. Everything sprang out of nothing.        2. Existence and life originated from an impersonal source. 3. Existence originated from a personal source.

We had a Blast!

by Steve Ray on July 31, 2006

MosesVideo.jpgDear Steve and Janet:
 
I am so excited! I decide to "go out into the deep" as our beloved Pope John Paul II asked of us and try to form a study group based on your Footprints of God series. The fist session was tonight. Four of us had our bibles, the Catechism, your study guide, and took the
Moses DVD chapter by chapter.

We took turns looking up all the verses you referenced in the study guide. My goodness, we positively felt Protestant! The participants were blown away by the dvd. They can hardly wait to see David/Solomon next. 

We were together three hours. We had a blast!
