Hobbits and More

Chuck Chalberg as G. K. Chesterton at Pauline Books and Media in St. Louis

Stained glass window of Christ in blue jeans - the modern everyman-as-Christ - in the chapel at St. Ambrose  College, Davenport, IA

The stations at St. Ambrose all feature the blue jean Jesus - the  modern everyman as Christ.

Jesus addresses the Wailing Women - whose children are playing cowboys & Indians.

With Joseph Pearce on the "Hobbit Hole" set of the upcoming EWTN special based on Joseph's book Bilbo's Journey.

 I have a story to go with the above photo.  This is Tolkien's office set at EWTN.  In one scene, I am Tolkien, reading from The Lord of the Rings.  I put the book down and get lost in the story.  I walk off the set onto the green screen, which, in post-production, will be transformed into a forest setting in Middle Earth.  I sit upon the green box (left) and address an imaginary figure - what will later become Frodo.

Where we were forced to stay for our performance in Fairhope, Alabama.  I guess the Super 8 was full.
