Smite Check!

First thing first: How are we doing on the smitings?

 

I had given ample opportunity for smitage: I flew from Portland ME to Columbus OH in January, then drove back across New York (during a Lake Effect snowstorm I'll add!) and didn't even have anything that can remotely be construed as a smiting.  Not a…

In Which We Up The Ante (Sign up for your Smiting!)

All right.  As you can see, I still have not been at the business end of a smiting.

 

I've discussed with some fellow non-believers about the possibility that there's a bit of a game of prayer-hockey going…
