We had a great time this weekend in Michigan at my brother's wedding. What a great answer to prayer! Literally, I couldn't be happier for him...now he has joy & Joy. Cause, like, that's her name. Note I didn't say we had a great time getting to Michigan. Travel was not fun. But definitely worth it.
I'm looking at this Books and Culture magazine from the Christianity Today people, trying to decide if I'm going to subscribe or not. It has some great articles, but also seems to lean toward the emerging church, cool enough to not be a Republican, postmodernism-is-the-way-to-do-church type of philosophy. But I've been longing for some better reading on literature & movies. So I think I'll keep it. Any naysayers?
Tonight I'm preaching on Proverbs, but this time I'm going to back up and give an apologetic for striving to find Christ in the midst of Proverbs. It really isn't that hard to do, if Christ is the wisdom of God. But it occurs to me that we could incur serious spiritual damage, especially on our children, if we use Proverbs to propel us down the road to modern Pharisaism. "Look ma, more rules!"
