You've only got a couple more days until this year's Photo Contest will be over. So... Upload your pictures and stories now!

That was just a reminder. There's another story you have that interests me even more.

Yep: I'm all about Sonlight stories and how much you love Sonlight and how Sonlight has totally made your homeschooling experience awesome. But there's an even more important story: How Christ has impacted you ...or not.

I got thinking about this this morning when I read an "article" from The Onion. Now, I find the satire of The Onion pretty funny from time to time. I first bumped into this paper when I saw the headline: Christ Returns to the NBA.

The religious themes continue, but what I saw today took it even further.

[NB: Profanity in the title. Content will likely sting. You have been warned.]
If I Hadn't Found Jesus...

Did you survive? I hope so.

These kinds of ideas show up again and again in entertainment: Using the words and phrases of Christianity while not reflecting Christ at all. Battlestar Galactica was rife with them as well. It comes down to completely missing the point of grace and redemption. Sadly, many Christians say similar things.

But perhaps the reason these misrepresentations keep surfacing is because the real stories aren't out there. What bothers me even more about all this is that my own stories are rather lacking. For all my writing and practice in story telling, I've yet to learn how to tell my own tales of redemption. Perhaps because I'm still too young to see them properly. Perhaps because I'm still too young and so the redemption hasn't fully happened yet. Perhaps...

So, please, share your Sonlight pictures and stories, but if you have any experiences of redemption--good or not--I'd be interested in hearing them.
