Last night m'lady and I did attend another session with Brian McLaren at AU. We even ran into son Isaac on the way there. It was a good time. We were a bit early and caught Brian teaching the all-girl worship team a song. They used it to close with. And this talk was a new one for me, and it was good. There are some things you just can't teach in books, and the only way to carry them on is for one person to teach another. He cited how we can't figure out how the pyramids were made, we cannot duplicate a Strativarious even with all of our technology today, and several more instances; and he also told how a violin maker goes about teaching an apprentice... that was neat. How it's an over and over and over and over again process of watching and learning, watching and learning.
The only thing I wrote down was this quote from Brian:
"Everybody wants to be cool, but Jesus wants us to be warm."
Yeah... another reminder for me.
Well... today is Jane's last day of making pizza's at East of Chicago. Unfortunately she has the sore throat and crummy feeling that I had this past weekend. Hopefully she'll feel better when she starts her new bank job Monday. Can't believe she's worked at the pizza place for 8 years. She's only called in sick once in all that time.
I've got a full plate today. I have breakfast with some other pastors this morning, need to look over what I hope will be my sermon for Sunday, put together an order of the service, do the powerpoint, make the bulletins, I have a couple of errands to run, and I'm hoping to mow one more time (though I've said that before).
You know, I hardly ever think about the possibility of a parallel universe anymore. But sometimes I wonder if there's a catawampus one. What do you think?
