Highlight(s) of the week: James and I spent a few hours with Lee and Jessica, for which occasion I made a stellar meatloaf. Adam came to stay with us at the end of last week, so we all got to spend some nice down time, eat nice meals, pray the Office - all the good stuff.
Ministry update: I finalized my end-of-year report, and after due consultation with my students and fellow pastors, created an outline for next year for the Community of the Resurrection at Georgetown College. Worship, meals, prayer. Love people well. Not really complicated, but the challenge always seems to be sticking with those things. I've had a great time keeping in touch with some of the students via the telephone device, but for the most part I've been trying to take it easy and spend my time on prayer, penance, and writing.
Stuff at work: I've been tinkering with my research guides, and preparing to give a small faculty demonstration on electronic research tools.
Book(s) I'm Reading: Sexual Authenticity, by Melinda Selmys (Publisher); Spirit of the Disciplines, by Dallas Willard (for Schola - Publisher / Library).
Media I'm Enjoying: True Blood and Malcolm in the Middle. Yah, I know.
Something that blew my mind: Presumption.
Something I've been chewing on: How do I talk to people about their sins against others when they're decades older than me?
Looking Forward To: Having a few people over this weekend to formally welcome James to our household with a house blessing and a party.
