I did not know that

Did you know that although its population is over 80% Hindu, the nation of India has a long rich Christian tradition? I didn’t. It is believed that Thomas – the disciple of Jesus who originally doubted his resurrection, sailed to India and landed at Malankara on the Kerala coast in 52AD. He is said to have established seven churches three hundred years before Christianity gained official recognition in Europe. Legend has it that he was martyred and buried in Tamil Nadu on the east coast. Why the info on India? I’m on my way to spend a several days there.

re: the random-ness

Husband. Father. Senior Pastor of Parkview Community Church in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
