I’ve been quite here recently due to a very heavy schedule. Fulfilling multiple roles at work, migrating into a new spot, t-ball for our girls, gardening and yard work as well as building a chicken ark have all kept me busy. Most of my recent online time has been spent working on revamping the podcast on our church’s site, as well as integrating an audio player into posts. You can see a test here.
The coffee has been good recently; I’m using the Chemex more and rediscovering it’s charm. I’ve also been reading Eugene Peterson’s “Eat This Book”. which has me rethinking how I handle scripture. I find, as a task oriented fellow, that my scripture reading can all to frequently be a check off for the day’s activities. Peterson bases the title, and premise of the book on Revelation 10 where John hears the angel preaching and is given the scroll to eat. The concept of ingesting scripture, making it part of me, seems to be what I should be about. So, I’ve been slowly revising my activities with respect to scripture. One thing, in particular, and also in conjunction with Sunday’s sermon, is to reread the four Servant Songs of Isaiah as well as the Hymn of Christ in Philippians 2. These are both to reset my focus on the person and work of Christ for me, in my life. Then, maybe, with God’s grace, I can become a little less selfish.
Solo Deo Gloria,
