I’ve been a little slow on new posts during the Christmas season. The blog will be revamped and is scheduled to open up again full time the first of January. The changes will include:
- A facelift of the blog layout with seasonal decor
- The resumption of Chapter a day Bible posts on weekdays
- A Koine Greek Word of the Day podcast on weekdays
- The resumption of articles, poems, literature, prayers, and other stuff posted 3 days a week
We will of course be keeping the weekly meanderings, otherwise what would I do with all the random stuff I come across over the course of the week. There will also be a section added regarding speaking opportunities if you need a guest speaker for a Sunday morning or a conference.
If you would like to see anything else on the blog please let me know.
Sorry that posts have been late this week. Monday morning I, along with half of my department, was laid off at work. Thursday morning I was offered a job that I had been interviewing for over the last month and a half; I will start that new job on Monday. So the way it worked out, I got a week paid vacation and a raise. But this week was a little nerve-racking for us as we did not know what was going to happen. I am very thankful that God has provided for us.
Here’s some stuff I came across this week…1. Jews and Muslims sharing the holy seasons in Jerusalem.
2. Jon Stewart interviews Bill Maher on his movie Religulous.
3. StufffChristiansLike has the 5 stages of emailing friends an unintentionally funny Christian video.
4. And David Crowder covers Sonseed’s “Jesus is my friend”.
5. They’ve been working on flexible, organic screens for a while…maybe they finally got it right!
6. How YouTube is influencing cheating.
7. Looking busy while writing a dissertation.
8. Failure to communicate: How conversations go wrong and what you can do to right them.
9. Women against fantasy sports.
10. Love that defied cancer.
11. Mr. Clean passes on.
12. Classical violin rock (check out the Nirvana selection).
Have a great weekend!
This is the last week of my quarter at school, and I’ve been playing that wonderful game known as catch-up. I will be posting again early next week if all goes well.
In the mean time, I had a conversation today and a lyric from “Advice, like youth, probably wasted” (one of the best prose poems of the 20th century) ran through my brain, so I thought I’d post that as a blast from the past. A newspaper column by Mary Schmich, published by the Chicago Tribune on 01 June 1997.
Inside every adult lurks a graduation speaker dying to get out, some world-weary pundit eager to pontificate on life to young people who’d rather be Rollerblading. Most of us, alas, will never be invited to sow our words of wisdom among an audience of caps and gowns, but there’s no reason we can’t entertain ourselves by composing a Guide to Life for Graduates.
I encourage anyone over 26 to try this and thank you for indulging my attempt.
Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’97:
I hate RSV. We are on day 8 in the Clendineng household. In theory it should only last 8-15 days and then we all get better. We’ll see how it goes. All signs point to us getting healthy soon. I can almost swallow without excruciating pain, Sam’s nose isn’t too runny, and Owen has his voice back (nothing is more pitiful than a two month old who has lost his voice). Hopefully I’ll get caught up on blogging today.
I apologize for late posts, we were five for five on being sick this weekend.
