Isaiah 9


So, I just finished writing a translation/exegetical paper on Isaiah 9. I have no diea how good or not good it is. Papers like this one help me realize why I will probably never pursue a PHD.

Today I did okay at remembering how amazing my daughter is. I was laying on the couch watching her run around and she came over with this little blue book (keep in mind that she is not yet two years old) and said, “Want to lay on the couch with Daddy and read “prayer””. The book is called “Prayers for little girls” or something like that… And she knows at least half the words in every prayer…

Needless to say, we read the book (and some other books too).

I want to write on my trip to the Farmer’s Market (I am reading “The Omnivore’s dilemma”), I wanted to write a week ago on masculine initiation and my high school coach’s story of the time his coach gave him the green light, and I suppose I could think of something remotely theological or interesting… such as who has to work harder to make their points about Scripture: the liberal or the conservative theologian. I really cannot tell, but it seems like a lot of work…

Two Requests to tell what I said to the student who asked me (this has happened a lot, I only knew the answer once…) if GOd could make a rock too heavy for him to pick up. I said, “Andrew (for that is his name), your question is based upon the laws of Physics and thermodynamics – my God not only invented those laws but He is not constrained by the time, space, philosophy, and language you are using. My God is too big for your question. Kalie was elated with my answer…
