Everything you ever wanted to know about the devil...


But were afraid to ask. Megan and I went to Hale's Ale's Brewery the other night for The Kindlings Muse. The beer was really good, and the food was tasty and the radio show was brilliant. Dick Staub, Bill Hogg and Bryan Burton (and will you please notice, Gretta and Megsie, that I have deferred to your (very strange) method of having no comma after the last item before "and" in a list of items?) talked for a while about the devil--who/what is he (Bryan won't say "who"--he wants to withhold personhood, which Bill thinks is a bity silly), his history, the reality/nature of evil, what about demons, how do christians in the modern and postmodern eras see all these things, etc. etc. It was facinating, and they took live questions, and Megan and I *both* got our questions chosen *quite* early (2 of the first 4). Megan says this is because we are both brilliant. I know she's brilliant.

You can listen to segment one of the show here. And segments 2 and 3 are coming tomorrow and Friday (in which Megan and I feature! Yippee!)
They do a show every Monday, so if you're in Seattle ...

Ben,

All Australian children learn to leave off that last comma before the 'and' in about Grade 2 of Primary school. I think we had to practise getting it right, too.

Kate, I notice that you also misspell "practice" (hehe)

Seren Rose said...

no! i never learnt such an odd thing! if it is a list, one needs a comma between the last item of the list and the word, "and."
i remember learning that in year four!

Seren--that's awesome. I wonder what your mum would say? She insists hers is the correct way. Could it be a change that occurred over there between when Megs was in school and when you were in school? (of course, this makes one wonder how old Kate is.--perhaps the change occurred at different times in different states)(you do call them states?)
And I agree--it's ridiculous to leave out that last comma! It doesn't work out loud at all. Just try to make no pause between those last two items out loud. sounds megawierd.
