A huge thanks!
First, a HUGE thanks to Dan for his generous birthday gift! Jürgen Moltmann’s The Trinity and the Kingdom most gladly arrived in the post, and I can’t wait to get into it! Many many thanks, Dan!
Here it is, seductively leaning temptingly on my desk, waiting to be touched, sniffed, caressed and taken to bed ... to read:
Before my innuendo chip blows up, I have to note that a very juvenile minded friend of mine has recently been abusing Google’s search feature to land on certain biblioblogs with some rather amusing searches (intending to scare the crap out of the blog owner, if they care to look at the sort of searches landing on their blogs). The friend, who shall remain unnamed (Si *cough* mon), landed on Steven Harris’ blog recently with some searches that I wouldn’t repeat here, but of course I would never do anything so immature.
For those of you who don’t know what the heck I’m talking about in the last paragraph, don’t worry; you’re not missing much.
Oh, and another thing. I decided to become a Catholic today.
Yep. A big papal ‘thumbs up’, a nice dollop of Pope-loving, and I’m a red robed, hat wearing, ground-kissing, staff swinging counter-reformation papist. Admittedly, in about half an hour I’m back to being protestant. This was only a short-lived jaunt into the realms of Romism; but it was the only way I could justify taking a break from my work on All Saints Day (a Catholic holiday). Some may call this intellectual dishonesty. I call it pragmatic intellectual flexibility.
