      The creepy image of God's hand writing on the wall haunts me as I ponder today's reading from Daniel the day before Halloween. But the image of Daniel, an alien, risking everything to speak truth to a tyrant is even more ...

      Furlong, Beth (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2007-11-28)
