It is the day before Thanksgiving and I have been busy. I spent the first part of the morning in the office, working on sermons. I also tidied up the little bit I’m doing at our Thanksgiving Eve service tonight. I also printed out the bulletin “blanks” for Sunday. I still have to finish up the stuff on the inside but I have to wait until tomorrow to make sure no one has anything to add. I took some more of my books over to the office today and hung a few family photos. It’s a cozy office and I like it a lot.
I also did some cleaning around the house. I am leaving tonight immediately after the service and driving to North Carolina. I didn’t want there to be a mess when Robin and the kids get up here Sunday night. There really wasn’t much to do…wash a few towels and the handful of dishes I used for lunch. I’m not taking anything with me tonight but a change of clothes…so there wasn’t anything to pack.
Robin got a call from Bradford County Action this morning. They offered her the case manager position over in Towanda. She gladly accepted. She’ll start the second week of December. That gives us next week to get the kids enrolled in school just in time for Christmas break.
We got the link to Geo’s senior photos today. They look really good. I’m still wrapping my head around the idea but I might as well get used to it…eh?
That’s about all I have today. I did some more reading and found out that Jack Cottrell did not come up with the idea of Original Grace. He traces the history of the concept in the unabridged version of his commentary on Romans. I didn’t realize that I had it on CD-ROM until this morning. I gave it a look and it seems that early Anabaptists held the same sort of view. I knew there was something I liked about those guys. Anyways…I’m still studying it. More to come later.
I don’t know if I will have the time to post tomorrow. I will try…but I’m making no promises. If I don’t…you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.
