Just some thoughts on Friday, now that Spring Break has officially begun:
- Spring Break has begun for Columbia Seminary students, and it’s raining. Which normally would be a downer, but the fact that it’s going to clean up some of our pollen – that, my friends, is joyous. Although, now there are little lakes of pollen all over the ground. Oh well.
- Why is it that I always get goosebumps when Miss Johnson gets Emilio to finally open up in class in Dangerous Minds? I love this movie, and not just for Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.”
- I’ve been reading some great books recently, which I will be posting more thorough reviews of later. I highly recommend these books: Listening to the Beliefs of Emerging Churches: Five Perspectives (although, WTF Mark Driscoll?), An Emergent Manifesto of Hope and Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighborhood Church Is Transforming the Faith.
- Looks like the PTS Logo Contest is starting to shape up. I have received six logos so far and I’m still expecting a couple more, but looks like we’ll actually have some logos to vote on. Fun.
- I just picked up two books that I’ll be reading in the next few weeks for my Pastoral Care of Couples & Families care. They look good. The Namesake and Stacy Johnson’s A Time to Embrace: Same-Gender Relationships in Religion, Law, and Politics. I’m especially interested in this book.
- Finally, I may have signed up for Facebook. I know, I know. What about Virb? Well, Virb is cooler looking than MySpace, but no one really uses it yet. So I jumped off the Virb ship, and I love Facebook – the functionality of it is way better and it has a nice design too. And the best part? I was able to get my wife to sign up. So, that’s cool. Anyway, I guess we all really can be friends now [if you’re a reader from the blog, and you want to be friends, please specify under “Met Randomly” something about the blog so I know that you are a blog reader and not some random spam friend. Thanks!].
