- Mac: Would you like a spot of tea?
- Dennis: MMMMMYEEESSSS!
(-It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: “The Gang Cracks The Liberty Bell”)
Highlight(s) of the week: (1) Amanda, Giselle, and I spent some time yesterday [Sunday] with our dear friends Tim and Susan and their wonderful baby boy, Nathan. (2) Amanda let me buy FIFA 2009 for XBox 360, which I was pretty excited about. (3) I wrote five posts for Everyday Liturgy. One in particular was mentioned publicly on Emergent Village’s twitterfeed. (4) I have my own website now! (view here – if you are about to click, I must inform you that you are already there).
- Podcasts: Mars Hills “Bricks and Boards,” and Speaking of Faith‘s “Liberating the Founders,” which I recommend to help remove some of the old assumptions about America’s founders and their religious beliefs.
- Music: I’ve fallen into the trap of listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, which I promised I’d never do
What I’ve been vegetating in front of: (1) It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Office; (2) Heroes; (3) FIFA 2009 on XBox 360 – I recommend to all soccer fans who play soccer video games. (4) I’ve also been on a Law & Order kick. No sure why? May have something to do with it being the only good afternoon television besides SportsCenter.
Something(s) that blew my mind: (1) our beloved Philadelphia Eagles found a way to a tie with the 1-win Cinncinati Bengals. Wow! Super Bowl, here we come! (2) The Bible talks about “beer” – I knew it talked about wine, but beer? I never knew that! (see Deut. 29v6; 1 Sam. 1v15; Isa. 29v9, 28v7, 24v9; Prov. 31v6 – the TNIV uses the word “beer”). (3) the subscriptions in Psalms likely weren’t part of the original text and “of David” could mean a number of things other than that they were written by David. Take that, fundies! I’m just kidding, but seriously.
Job update: still not much progress. I contacted a few places, but I haven’t heard back. I’m not worrying yet.
Seminary update: tomorrow will be the second class on Old Testament poetic books. I’m enjoying it so far. I didn’t know the Psalms could be so complicated!
Looking forward to: (1) What God has in store for me. (2) Giselle to associate “Da-da” with me. (3) Finding a place to live on our own.
