O Mexico! 2

posted by xscot mcknight

Kris and I, along with Laura and Mark and Lukas and Annika, got to Ixtapa after a long delay at O’Hare, a smooth flight, and a long delay here at the airport with our bus (some passengers didn’t get their luggage, which we’ve experienced ourselves so we were all “moans” of a psychologist sort when we heard their story).
Well, who cares about delays? We’re on a vacation and plan to enjoy ourselves. Which I did today: I read a chp in Schmiechen’s book on atonement, and then read bundles of Thomas Sowell’s autobiography. The military chp was too long, but the rest has been great. I finish Sowell tomorrow, and then start Rebecca’s Revival, a wonderful tale of the faith of a woman. I’ll be up at the crack of dawn for some beach-morning prayers and then begin a long day of doing nothing! I”ll try to post some pictures.

Scot,
Are you reading Schmiechen’s SAVING POWER: THEORIES OF THE ATONEMENT AND FORMS OF THE CHURCH?

John,
Yep, Saving Power. I read Anselm chp today. Very good, and very much along the line of how I’ve understood Anselm for about four years.
Jean,
Mark (Laura’s husband) is reading Blue Like Jazz.
Laura and Annika (Luke’s wife) and Kari (my niece) are reading novels.
Kris is reading a novel that Oprah picked out; it is about a guy who is putting the pieces of his life together.
Luke has yet to open a book, though he did do The Little Book of Hours today.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
