whew

This is one of my toughest teaching weeks. As I seek to lay, or solidify a foundation of knowledge of the history of the Old Testament which leads to an understanding of the New Testament, I cover a lot every day. Sometimes by 7th period, it is all I can do to sit on my stool and cover the ground… But I am blessed with five great classes of engaged students, most of whom have really good attitudes. For that I am thankful. I sure am glad for Labor Day and look forward to some rest.

movies

Well, Becca is in town this weekend and Sweet Anna, Becca and I went to see “Becoming Jane”. I really enjoyed the way this film showed Austen to be a woman of intelligence, passion and justice. She saw what should be done and did it. I found the direction to be just excellent and the script fantastic…

This week my friend John and I have been watching “Band of Brothers”. I have found this series to be compelling in the manner that it looks at the effects of the war on a different man’s life in each episode. In episode five, the leader of the band was experiencing PTSD in the Paris subway (which looked just like the yellow line in Budapest) and this series really make me get a sense of some of the feelings that these men experienced… There is little doubt that I thought of Vukovar on more than one occasion.
