The dew point is high, and it is a muggy and windless evening here in the nation’s heartland. A few of us are filming a post-game scene for the Vine Valley project.

“Jesus answered, ‘It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.’ Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. ‘What you are about to do, do quickly,’ Jesus told him, but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.”

Because Jude and I were gone all day Saturday at the aforementioned wedding, I neglected to pass along the softball scorebook to someone for the Friday night playoffs. Consequently, Nathan came up to my desk early yesterday with the play-by-play of each game scrawled onto a handful of small papers.

Jude and I were on a wedding most of yesterday. The reception was in this really nice ballroom.

Yep, that was at the Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis, which is connected to the Scottrade Center, where the Blues have their home games. Really a beautiful spot, and we even got to take some video shots in their big amphitheater!

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’”

Thought this was a pretty entertaining column by Maureen Dowd about Obama’s golfing, etc. Seems like even a lot of the mainstream/liberal-leaning media is pretty frustrated with him now.

And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

“Again the high priest asked him, ‘Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?’ ‘I am,’ said Jesus. ‘And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.’ The high priest tore his clothes. ‘Why do we need any more witnesses?’ he asked. ‘You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?’ They all condemned him as worthy of death.”
