Now for something else a little different:
A blog toy for texts

Wordle creates word clouds out of any text you insert in it. For this Sunday evening, I thought I'd drop in some religious texts.

Here's the first chapter of Genesis, the ancient Hebrew creation myth:

And here's the Nicene Creed. No one will be surprised to see that in the 4th century after Christ this effort to lock the deity down to a formula of words leaned toward the patriarchal.

In honor of today's Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, here's the prayer attributed to that 13th century exemplar of Christian simplicity.

Go make your own with your own texts.
