You’ve got to wonder

Evangelicals making tracks in Hot Springs

by Leslie Newell Peacock, May 18, 2011

Hot Springs is the town where you gamble on the ponies, tread in the steps of gangsters taking the waters, and where a club on one of its most busy streets advertises “Strip Karaoke.” Hot baths, massages, the pleasures of the body are part of its soul; “Prairie Home Companion” humorist Garrison Keillor called it the “loose buckle on the Bible Belt.”

Once upon a time



The name “Mission: Meeting” is sort of an inside joke for missionaries and MKs (children of missionaries are called “missionary kids” or “mishkids”) who endured endless¹ “mission meetings” (planning and business meetings). It also conveys the idea that this project’s mission is to allow web site visitors to “meet” real people of the Middle East from the points of view of Americans who actually lived and worked among them.

Hopefully, the perspective of unimpeachable (e.g., American + Christian) … [more]

7 Things About Prophet Muhammad: A Clarification

By , 01/28/2013  6:58 pm


In her recent piece, “7 Things That May Surprise You About Muhammad,” author Lesley Hazleton offers unique insights into Prophet Muhammad’s life. Giving credit where it is due, I’ve enjoyed Hazleton’s TED talk on Prophet Muhammad, and many of her writings on Islam. In fairness, however, several of her “7 Things” are incorrect.

David Barton

The following was adapted from an e-mail conversation with my pastor, following a December 12, 2010 front-page article in the Sentinel Record describing how David Barton was “brought” to Hot Springs by another pastor (who just happens to be the new mayor’s husband) for a rah-rah rally/revival to “energize and educate” Tea Party Republicans who recently routed the Democratic establishment here (one of their candidates, who died a few days before the election, still handily beat his rival).

Barton, a … [more]
