--Word of the Day: irenic \eye-REN-ik; -REE-nik\, adjective:
Tending to promote peace; conciliatory.
With an irenic spirit they join the debate, at times ugly and vicious, about the historicity of the Bible (by which they mean the Hebrew Scriptures, also known as the Old Testament).
-Phyllis Trible, "God's Ghostwriters", New York Times, February 4, 2001

--Quote of the Day:Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
~Anaïs Nin
