I struggle to blog. My wife will tell you I am good at talking myself out of things.
I could write about these movies that I have seen lately: Another Year, HP8 (Because no one has blogged about that yet), Captain America (I see a lot of movies).
Played the Board Game Battlestar Galactica (Frakin’ toasters), and now Rachel and I are just into Season 2. I was hoping for Firefly Story with Mad Men Dialogue. We are getting good plotlines and shallow writing.
Some friends who I haven’t seen in awhile mentioned the blog and enjoying it. I could write about the books I’m working through. Negativity – especially Christian to Christian – seems unnecessary from this assistant pastor, but I don’t know that I have negative thoughts anyway. My boss blogs.
I appreciate NT Wright’s book on Hope. Andrew Murray’s book on prayer is the closest thing to a devotional I have. Dr. Collins’ book on Adam and Eve is good, but I struggle to remember the importance because most of the people at my church are not passionate about this nuanced difference amongst Creation Theology. I love Coffee. I also love beer. And fountain pens.
The Mystery of Marriage is blowing me away. Can one make marriage idolatrous? I am in danger of it I think. Can one expect too much? Can the beauty of language, sacrament, mystery, and theology lead me to a mountain that I simply fall off of when I walk in the door at home?
My Wife’s blog is worth following.
