Well . . . I have a new favorite team to never root for, never wish anything good to happen, and generally despise in odious fervor . . . stupid Florida . . . gross . . . I especially like the way that their two wins over Ohio State have reignited the Civil War for so many SEC fans . . . stupid school . . . *&$%@#$ $#*^@ . . . that’s all I’ll say about that . . .
A disgruntled, but proud (and still true) fan!
Other exciting things:
* I have the task of drafting an Easter sermon for this Sunday. I’ll post the script here soon.
* I got a sweet deal at the Cokesbury Press store down here in Columbus. It is always a highlight when they do their bag sale. I got 35 books for $15 – how sweet is that? Here’s some of the highlights from the sale:
* The Reluctant Parting: How the New Testament’s Jewish Writers Created a Jewish Book by Julie Galambush
* Soul Searching: The Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Teenagers by Christian Smith
* Millenials Rising: The Next Great Generation by Neil Howe and William Strauss
* Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
* Deep Religious Pluralism edited by David Ray Griffin
* Many Members yet One Body: Committed Same-Gender Relationships and the Mission of the Church by Graig L. Nessan
* How to Think Theologically by Howard W. Stone & James O. Duke
* And, perhaps the most bizarre find: Finding God in the Singing River: Christianity, Spirit, Nature by Mark I. Wallace
The bag sale makes my day a little brighter. I have plenty in the hopper going on . . . hopefully I’ll have time to comment later.
