Evening on the Porch

posted by xscot mcknight

It was Kris’ birthday yesterday, and Laura and Mark came up for dinner on the porch. I made mushroom caps filled with basil, a salad, and I cooked up Chinese in the wok. Then we went for a long walk at Independence Grove Forest Preserve — where we saw an Eastern Bluebird nest with some babies poking their heads out. A littleice cream custard at Culver’s led us back to the porch for some good time talking. Laura had her last day of teaching yesterday, and Mark is in the thick of organizing the Leadership Summit at Willow. Thanks to them for coming up. Good time. (Luke called to wish Kris a happy birthday; thanks Luke.)

Happy Birthday to Kris! But, Scott, “I cooked up Chinese in the wok.”??? How did the Chinese feel about that!
Just kidding!

Isn’t it nice to know that people pay so much attention to every word you write! Go Mavs! (on behalf of Christa)

Where are you guys?

I forgot that your world is confined to Theology, Kris and baseball (good job on the first two by the way). The “Mavs” are the Dallas Mavericks basketball team; Heat vs Mavericks tonight 8pm. Christa and I are in Fort Worth for the summer living with her folks (they are attempting to enlighten me on the greatness of the state). I am completing an internship before we head of to Edinburgh in August. I miss Lake Michigan already.

I thought basketball ended with the NCAA tournament. Why are they still playing?
Tell me what you thinkof the humidity down there. It’s palpable.

Happy birthday Kris, you share a birthday with my oldest daughter, Hanna (18). We were able to get an autograph from her favorite Lady Vol, Candace Parker, when we were behind her at Walmart. We gave it to her for her Bday. She loved it.

Christa (and Andy),
Go Mavs! They won last night I see (as I read the paper).

Happy Birthday Kris! Sounds like a nice time for you all. The custard must be good to be better than the ice cream!

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
