Jensen 17 Wettlaufer, Carl, Jr. Down 5, this week. I like to think of the whites in the South as being transformed not defeated.
On Saturday evening we canned tomatoes and today we had our priest over for dinner after I cantored in the morning.
Our pleasant weekend serves in strong contrast with what thousands of our brothers and sisters in Christ are enduring in Egypt. Pope Francis sent out a convicting tweet on Saturday that drove the point home.

We cannot sleep peacefully while babies are dying of hunger and the elderly are without medical assistance. When God blesses me with abundance, I want to always keep in mind those who are suffering, struggling, despairing. May God show mercy to all people in Egypt. Happy to see how many new people are stopping by. Also, as a note to my evangelical brothers and sisters—I still have a deep love for Southern Baptist Theological, as I do my evangelical upbringing.
The following is what I hope will be several posts on the subject. For other snapshots of my journey, read my original conversion story and one year update. What was the last straw before leaving seminary?
Midway through college I had become enamored with my faith in Jesus and decided to become a pastor. After a summer of missionary work rerouted from central Asia to Poland, a funny excursion for another post confirmed my calling, I turned to the idea of whether to fund raise a salary and leave quickly, or go to seminary first. Though I was a typical young evangelical and not loyal to a denomination, I was impressed with the Southern Baptist missionary program.
So I became a Southern Baptist.
After two farewell cakes and many kind gifts and hugs a year later, I pulled up to Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in early January and began a three week, day-long course on Biblical Hermeneutics. My roommate was right—I knew the temptation to cross the Tiber would ease once I was surrounded by Truth at seminary. Cave Research Presentations Robert J. Cave Publications and Papers Robert J.

The Segregationist player can play a Malcolm X card which pushes the Civil Rights movement away from non-violence.
While Malcolm X did not embrace Gandhi-style values, if he were alive today he would probably have some angry words about any game that makes him even an accidental ally of white supremacists. There are also some interesting twists.
The game cleverly defuses the issue of having the Segregationist player constantly trying to assassinate black leaders. Even a game that salutes the civil rights movement could be distasteful if one of the players ends up saying things like: I want to try to kill Medgar Evers.
In the end the game still simulates the horrifying violence of the extreme Segregationists, but no player is obliged by the gaming system to directly pull the trigger on the cardboard counterparts of the courageous historical black leaders. The game also allows players to influence the presidential elections of the era in the hope of getting a president sympathetic to their cause.
And the Civil Rights player can try to recreate certain historical civil rights victories like the Montgomery Bus Boycott, or the integration of Ole Miss for extra points. The paste-them-yourself units could have been bigger.
The leader units need to have their names on the counters; the black leaders look like generic black guys, and the white leaders look like generic white guys, and I suspect it will be annoying to constantly have to look up and see which face goes with which name. And the follower units could use their identifying letters on them.
But these are minor gripes. I hope to give this game a try in the near future. This character biography is empty. Please add a character biography by clicking here.
