2:56 PM UPI religion writer Uwe Siemon-Netto discusses the "revival" of Satan in light of the Madrid train bombing and the prominence of Satan in "The Passion of the Christ." Here is his powerful conclusion:
Indeed, we are not contending against flesh and blood. This is the message of Gibson's work — and evidently of the ever-increasing horrors brought into everybody's living or bedroom via cable television and the Internet.

For more information, go to this website. 2:20 PM Our new worship schedule begins this Sunday. I saw the tech guys a few minutes ago working on some details.
