Before church this morning, I loaded my car for laundry, but the prospect of laundry was unbearable after church and I headed home. So I think that today's more cerebral. I started out the day early with discussion questions on Shelfari for chapter I of J I Packer's Knowing God. A few of my responses were lost into cyber space because I pushed the wrong button.
When I came home I watched the ending of the movie Time Out - which was very French and very moody and I gave it five stars (out of five). The actor Aurelien Recoing resembles Kevin Spacey in that he has a receding hairline, expressive eyes and dimples.
Then I tried yet another time to read N.T. Wright's article on Heaven that appeared in Christianity Today a while ago. I found it too difficult for me to follow, so I spent a few hours on the web reading related interviews, blogs, Wiki articles, and a few detours. What I've got so far is that I was right to distrust "Left Behind" popular theology and the LifeWay Sunday School drivel I've heard. But what Wright describes as a replacement is still confusing to me. I have images of myself picking arguments during funerals.
Now I'm watching a video from the National Cathedral. Wright is speaking about his book Simply Christianity. It is a lot easier for me to understand Wright's speaking than his writing. He uses a lot of commas in his speech and his writing, and they are a lot easier to follow with body language. (I add this later: It is an hour long, but it is a very worthwhile lecture!)
Well, now I still have to face molecular biology and my laundry.
