All this Centennial Celebration stuff aside, we can't be all that prideful if our state motto is Oklahoma, OK! We're not great, we're just, well, sorta, OK. I'm not all into the whole centennial thing, but I like Oklahoma fine. It's OK :)

As an exiled Okie with deep roots in the state that's married to another deep-rooted Okie, I can tell you lots of great things about Oklahoma: Braum's ice cream and Johnnie's theta burgers would top the list.
Instead of Will Rogers, how about Pretty Boy Floyd ? He's more in keeping with the state's outlaw heritage .

Number 3 is hard for me to believe. From my nearly 4 years in OK, I remember lots of flat land, some rocky areas toward Texas, and the beginnings of the Ozarks as you head east to MO. Mostly I thought OK was ugly. Being from the Northeast really spoils you for the plains.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
