– Jeremiah Bailey wonders aloud whether or not Clement of Rome wrote or quoted from the Epistle to the Hebrews.

– Nick Norelli asks “To whom should we pray?”

– The Roman Catholic Church may purchase the Crystal Cathedral.

– If your looking for a funny blogs let me recommend ‘Homilies & Pablum‘ and ‘Starbucks Spelling‘.
