Thursday’s “debate” – – – 7days to take off

the VEEP debate is coming up Thursday… lots of talk about it on the media… can Palin hold her own? I have my doubts…

but then there is Biden who is known for: a) putting his foot in his mouth (I know that feeling) and b) being long winded about it…

maybe she has a chance after all… 

will I be undecided after Thursday? 

Probably.

and then there is the economy… but that is another post.

Lord have mercy upon us…

Hey friends in HU and HR, I fly your way a week from tonight!!

election of ’08

If John McCain’s qualification is experience and decision making ability and in perhaps his most important decision so far, he chooses Sarah Palin who (based on my viewing of her interviews) many of my 17 and 18 year old students could outwit…
and
If Barak Obama is the agent of change who chooses Joe Biden and who is known for his oration
and couldn’t outwit his opponent last night…
and
As neither man actually answered any questions last night about how they would handle the worst economic crisis in 70 years…
then
For the first time in my memory…
I am now an undecided voter.

God, please help us. We are in dire straits.

good fruit

a couple of Saturdays ago we picked grapes… we discovered that some of the best bunches of grapes were hidden under the braod leaves… the leaves shielded the fruit and it was nourished and grew… I thought how we too are to bear fruit and the best fruit of the Spirit comes when we are nourished and are ‘raising the shield of faith.’ May Jesus’ followers abide in the vine.

the end of summer…

Summer came to an end Monday, the days evened out and are growing shorter here in the northern hemisphere. It has been a really busy time for about a month of preparation for, experiencing, evaluating and debriefing our annual fall retreat resulted in chapel yesterday when we played a 15 minute movie of the retreat. Below is a fun nine minute version. The background music is from the retreat too as our friends Alan and Julie played and led our chapel music team. (Warning, if you have a slow connection like I have here at school, it will be a halting viewing.)
