Josh and Abby head back to Mossel Bay today so Tuesday night we had our last supper… our usual – Chinese take out – everyone was laying around after we finished… josh-and-abbySweet Anna and I have really enjoyed our evenings with them since they have been in the US these last two months… their blog is linked over under daily reading…

change

I just did some posting and I realized something… this blog has turned into more of a “what’s happening” blog than a “what’s thinking” blog… that’s a bit of a change… as I sit here having just set up some posts for the next couple of days, I realize that my postings have been more experiential and less thoughtful… I now sit here typing and wonder about that… maybe because I am reading less… yes, that’s part of it, I’m sure… am I burned out? is the reading I’m doing not thought provoking enough? Am I not talking about it with people enough? Did the election wear me out? Is the gloom and doom of the economy weighing on me? Perhaps I am listening and watching too much news? questions to ponder… 

BBC World Service from 0545 – 0630, NPR on the way to school, local news about 1730, BBC at 1800, News Hour at 1900… yeah, that’s too much news… I need to cut down on the news… think about bigger issues!

C.S.Lewis bookshelf

 

I informed my students Monday that they need to go buy Mere Christianity… I am amazed that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the 2nd of our three terms will begin after that break… SO, I went down to look for a copy of Mere to put a pic on the class blog (LastBibleClass) and decided to take a picture of my Lewis shelf to post.

I have been called a Lewis nut…

communication

is hard work… we need to develop the ability of making sure what we want to convey is what is heard… let’s be deliberate enough about our words to make sure that our listener hears what we intend…

God

I was contemplating God last evening as:

Omnipotent… Wise… Omniscient… Just… Mercy… Love… Everywhere and Everywhen… Without blemish or spot… Precious Saviour… Glorious Lord… Worthy… Blessed… Compassionate… Kind… Gracious… Giver… Prince of Peace… Mighty God… Wonderful… Counselor… Great Saviour… Kind and Loving King who cares deeply for His subjects… You are above and greater in understanding… Reveal-er… never leaver… Faithful…
