Call Me a Schmuck
I know, call me a schmuck - I've hardly posted in the last week. Life is really busy right now - our car has died (and 10 days later is still in the shop), we're trying to sell our house, I had an exam this week, I should be translating Hebrew right now, blah, blah, blah. Frankly, my life is probably an awful lot like yours in its ordinary busy-ness.
That said, I have still been reading, and thought I'd share a few nuggets:
- First, there is Steve McCoy's reflections on the gospel - I think he's on to something we could all use more of. If someone asked you how the gospel made a difference in your life last week, how would you answer?
- Second, I want to point you towards 2 posts over on 9th Street Records, where I've discovered a thoughtful fellow blogger who happens to attend the same inner city church in Philadelphia that we do. Ryan K reflects on Smoking as an Act of Hope, as well as his own motivation for living in the city.
