...at LTS. I'm working though my Bible notes as I draft my essay. Watch this space for interesting litte tidbits, as well as things I'm thinking about.
Yesterday was Saint Augustine's feast day. Mike Aquilina did a little piece on him.
Aside: I only know a couple of people who do this, but sometimes folks send me e-mails telling me to call them. I never do. Matt suggested that some people do this in order to get credit for making contact while still putting the onus of real communication on the other person. I wondered if it's not just because they think I'm busier than they are. Do any of you do that? What do you think it means?
Notes: What is this notion about an objective, methodical approach to Scripture? As if we could be objective readers, never bringing our own presuppositions or perspectives to it. Chris Roland pointed out one day that it seemed very odd that in a modernist view, an Oxford professor has the dignity of claiming a "method" when he reads scripture, but a poor woman from the global South merely has an "approach."
Aside: We continue to pray for those affected by Sunday's plane crash. The word on the street is that two local chain restaurants refused requests to help feed the emergency workers on the scene, but a couple of local restaurants offered a heck of a lot of food. Is it a positive thing for names to be named?
Okay, the people around me are done talking. Back to my notes!
