Disheveled Theologian: The Santa Boat
Christmas memories make me smile. Mostly. I have one Christmas memory, however, that brings more of a grimace than a grin. For some reason, which I suppose was deemed charitable, Santa Claus used to visit Orcas Island in a boat. The Santa Boat would tie up next to the ferry dock and...

Disheveled Thelogian: A feast, a robbery and a reason to give thanks
