More to come, I promise...

Well, we had the whirlwind that is Holy Week, juggling churchly and family duties...and Kiddo came down with a rather nasty sinus infection, meaning Sweetie and I haven't had the most sleep in the world...and now I'm at a candidacy retreat. So much to blog about, so little time, and so little energy right now...fear not, it will come. In the meantime, I leave you with this thought from Eugene Peterson's book Eat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading, which we discussed at the retreat this afternoon:


Christians don't simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus' name, hands raised in adoration of the Father, feet washed in company with the Son.

Sometimes I love Eugene Peterson - he's got such a fresh way of seeing things.

Sorry I haven't been commenting more - I have been reading since Sunday, though.

We'll see you in just a few short weeks!

Hi LH! Sorry to hear you've been kind of swamped lately. I thought of you recently because I'm doing a project on finding music as different as possible, and thought you might be interested. To reduce bias, I made an online survey that takes about 10 min. If this sounds interesting to you, the page is at http://christykeele.googlepages.com/musicasdifferentaspossible
Hope you and your family are doing well!
