The Thoughts and Musings of Tom Allain

If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it

Family Update

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

OK, I don’t do this often, but I wanted to post a quick note about happenings in my family. I decided to do this after I read a nice article about my nephew Chris in his local newspaper in Virginia. He turns 18 next month and has begun his senior year at my old high school, Woodbridge Senior High School. I hear rumor of a tattoo, but haven’t seen it yet.

In other exciting news, his older brother Nathan is marrying his longtime love, Makayla Nadeau. We’re all gathering in Rhode Island in November for the wedding (a short 55 days from today). Nathan is currently studying for a Ph.D. at Boston University (a short ride on the T from my old stomping grounds, Boston College).

These are exciting days.
