So-called "mountaintop experiences" are often called "beyond description" by those who are careful about sharing religious experiences. I know. I am one of those people, with podcast episodes like this one being an exception. With a connection to the team building concepts in the previous show on spiritual development, let's go behind the scenes -- metaphorically around the campfire -- at a spiritual retreat or two.

As a genre, "thriller" is different from horror or other suspense films, but that distinction is in grave danger of being lost forever. Before the most common forms of scary cinema became slashers or demonic possession, when serial killer movies were crime-dramas rather than gorefests, the thriller was the TV equivalent of the midnight movie. Now, with Halloween approaching, you are more likely to see Friday The Umpteenth than any of the classics starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, or Vincent Price. Film fans have lost more than we realize.

A little more than two and a half years ago, I didn't own a microphone and had never recorded an MP3 file. My experience as a podcaster was limited to the role of listener and, occasionally, a caller on live internet broadcasts. Now, 100 episodes later, I'm telling the story of Inappropriate Conversations through the voice of other shows, friends and fans. The extended length comes from more than 30 minutes of clips from me and others, none of which have appeared before on this show.

When warfare turns ugly, as it so often does, how do we assign blame? I often (with an almost adolescent sense of justice) ask "who started it?" or look to moments when compromise or surrender should have occurred. It is from this perspective that I hold the Japanese military leadership during World War II responsible for the existence of nuclear warfare, even though they didn't develop the weapons that devastated Hiroshima and Nagasaki and they certainly didn't drop the bombs on their own country.

Ritual can be a part of authentic worship, but if that's all there is then it is almost certainly false. My faith has consistently affirmed the conviction that God is "present" within worship, not as a judgmental taskmaster but as a loving, creative force. Genuine worship changes over time, even from week to week. Rather than being regimented, if it is truly God-focused then it will reflect the Lord's mysterious ways. Anything less than a journey into this heart of wonder may be "religious" but it certainly isn't spiritual.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? No, and the same applies to family. For me, the cryptic lyrics to a song so often sung on New Year's Eve has extra meaning because the day itself recalls loved ones who have gone too soon and left us behind. Sorry, but it is a struggle for me to look at this time of year without wrestling with regrets.
