The above quote is a line we have been using in our Readings in Christology class this semester. While I think Jon Sobrino is brilliant in his work in Christology, his book Jesus in Latin America is dense and hard to get through. I do look forward to the discussions to help wade through the book together.
We are almost at the end of the birthday run. My daughter’s (baby girl) birthday is Valentines day and my son’s (the boy) is on the 26th. I don’t remember if I mentioned that or not. Plus my parents are at the beginning of February. We have a party planned for this Saturday for the boy and his friends from day care at Peace A Pizza. It is a cute little place where the kids make their own pizza and they decorate a cookie for the party. The boy keeps saying he is going to Pizza Hut, but I am sure he won’t care as long as there is pizza involved.
The next few weeks are going to be pretty busy. I preached last night at St. Paul’s for the Wednesday night Lenten service. Next Tuesday I preach at Chapel on campus and the following Sunday I preach again at St. Paul’s. Not to mention the various reading assignments and presentations that need to go into that mix. I am somewhat thankful for the busy schedule because it takes my mind off the looming synodical assignment for Region Seven on Palm Sunday. I hear the interview process with the bishops is great but it makes for a long and intense day. But I will know by 5:00 that evening which synod I will be going too so come and check it out.
I wish I had some deep theological or inspirational message to share but right now I am trying to keep my head above the water. I will try and post one of my sermons from this stint when I get a chance.
