Since it has been several days since I posted, I have quite a few random thougths that have accumulated. Sorry!
A) If you want to read a wonderful take on the whole Jesus and Nicodemus encounter,
go to http://www.stamfordchurch.com/pdf/bulletin/20050328.pdf and read the Dale Pauls bulletin article from the Stamford church in CT.
B) After reading for pleasure two books which centered around Africa, my next challenge is "The Brothers Karamazov" by Doestoevsky. It was all I could do just now to spell it right, so I wonder what I am in for as far as the reading. Any fans out there?
C) Does Keith Brenton need to find a publisher or what? Keith, quit your day job and get to writing...........you have been blessed with a gift. DUH! If others can make it, you can too.
D) Nobody made sure I read the warning label on Mike's CD of his sermon from January concerning women, which reads "Knee Pads Required". Goodness. Talk about humbling! If you haven't heard it yet, don't go another week without getting a copy.
E) My heart about jumped out of my throat when I saw Jay and Andrea Baker at church last week and again on Sunday. I know I have lots of heroes, but Jay and Andrea for sure fit in that category. Jay and Andrea are special for LOTS of reasons. They are one of the missionary families I was talking about in my post from last fall entitled "Sad Sad Day" or something like that. I love Jay and Andrea Baker!
F) Does "I Started A Joke" by the Bee Gees have the most stupid lyrics in the history of pop, or am I just being too critical? And for the record, I am a Bee Gees fan.
G) Are you as excited as I am about the young leaders amongst us? I can't wait to see where God is going to take that generation with capable leaders like Jonathan Storment, Greg Kendall-Ball, Bobby Garner, Michael Cooper, and many more that I know I am leaving out.....so tell me their names. And yes, I apologize for not naming any females! That is a reflection on me, not them. I know they are out there too!
H) Is Spring not the most wonderful time of the year? I've got it in my mind that Eden must have been in spring time when Adam and Eve were put there.
I) The Cardinals are going all the way this time.....no melt down in the Series.
J) Dancing is officially off the "don't do" list. I went to Spring Sing this weekend, and it was great!
K) I predict the Harding Bisons will win 10 games next fall. You heard it here first!
L) And last but for SURE not least, be in prayer asking for wisdom for those who will be making the decision as to who will be the next Dean for the Bible Department here. It is a watershed moment in the history of this institution.
