Leaving Oxford: more liveblogging

Ordinary Time


9:17am. I'm packing this morning. I don't know quite why, but I was only able to sleep for about two hours last night - not really happy about that one.

9:33am. I have a big stack of papers I need to pack somehow. Not real sure how I'm going to do that. My clothing has fit rather well in all the right places, though.

I gave the homily in worship with the hOME Community last night. I enjoyed working with the ideas I was pulling together, but it was one of those moments when I was like, this really isn't working as a sermon. Happily, one of the joys of being part of an "emerging" community is that it's perfectly acceptable to move into discussion mode. I'll post my manuscript later in the week, but it will suffice to say at the moment that it was about moving from an understanding of salvation and spiritual growth centered on the "individual," and working instead on the level of the whole community and God's plans for the entire world.

Somebody might have said something about "no salvation outside the Church." I'm not sure, I can neither confirm or deny that...

It's very hot today. And I'm listening to Linkin Park. Grrr...

11:15am. I think all my stuff will fit, but only just. And I've moved back to Fall Out Boy.

12:07pm. Did I finish clearing up after Saturday's party? I'd better go check...

12:40pm. Okay, that's better. Now time for lunch...

1:56pm. Coffee in the MCR. This is what life is about. That, and teasing Brad, who strained some neck muscles at yesterday's picnic. He can't move around very well, and that's funny, in a macabre way. I wonder if Chris will be surprised to find that I've used the vacuum cleaner to blow baking soda under his door.

2:47pm. So sleepy! Havin' dinner at Nando's tonight. Last time for awhile. Sigh.

Looking forward to you being back in KY. Safe travel.

Kyle said...

Thanks, Bryan. It will be sweet.

Chris, I will swat you like a naughty doggie.

Chris said...

All of YOUR stuff will fit, but what about random sweat pants that were left behind for you to deal with? ;)

You are coming back to the one nation that is under God, indivisible, and so on... aren't you happy?

I would be happy.

:)

Kyle said...

Arrrgh! Stupid random sweat pants!

Why? Why why why why?

I am happy, Mike, jingoism aside. :0)

So smug! You think the world waits with breath that is bated to hear of the mundane exploits that are your day? Well I did. And now waiting again, excited to share a continent, wait… a state, wait… even a city with you for a short time!!!
