:chuckle: I just can't imagine you needing absolution, Sela.
October is such a good month to be in California, but I have to say it follows a long, hot dry season - and believe me when the first rain comes in Nov. or Dec., I'm likely to pull up a chair and enjoy the show since it's usually been a good 6 months or more since we've seen rain here. And your autumn colors must be so gorgeous... I'm envious of that, we really don't get much in the way of fall color here. So you see, there's a price to be paid for good weather and no snow. Try to hold that thought the next time you're scraping ice off your car. :chuckle:
I just assumed you were immune to cold I guess. :chuckle: Myself, I’m sitting on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean right now (Del Mar) and it’s currently a sunny 74 degrees. . I don’t know if I can post a photo from my phone, if not I’ll try later from my laptop.
Keep on keepin on... it’s the human condition, isn’t it?
Nice, at various times I think about getting something on the Quran too. I'd like to better understand it. Most of my exposure to Islam and the Quran is from conservative Christians who probably aren't very objective with what they say.
Not familiar with Macdonald or apokatastasis. Fascinating that he had an influence on Lewis and Tolkien though. I'll try to check him out. And the article. Thanks for the link. :up:
Have you ever heard of The New International Commentary on the New Testament? I came across it a couple months ago and bought their Mathew book. It's over 1200 pages! :noway: I've been enjoying it so far. Reading a little bit each weekend. Some interesting info.
I think I'm going to check out one of Paul's epistles also. Maybe Colossians because the author, Scot McKnight, wrote another book that I recently read.
I hope you're keeping that journal like I told you to... Even if you don't want to write the Norwegian version of Diary of a Country Priest, you're going to want to remember things 30 years from now, even if you're quite sure today that you won't forget.
So much really is looney tunes... :chuckle: It's quite exhausting, waiting for the nightmare to be over and knowing there'll just be a new one to follow.
