Books of 2008

I love learning and I love reading. So last year, Heather and I were throwing around some ideas of New Year's Resolutions. I thought a resolution centered around reading more was right up my alley. Then I settled on pushing myself to read a book per month in 2008. It seemed like great timing, with us going off to Seminary mid-year. It was hard to balance Bible reading with other reading but overall I am glad I challenged myself. I even included all the books I had to read (in their entirety) for classes. Here are the books of 2008!

Mission in the Old Testament, Walter C. Kaiser Jr.

I had a habit during seminary of sharing the books I had been reading. In my heart, I'm not sure if it seems boastful to continue this tradition.

Bold Coffee: Gold Coast

Week #7 Gold Coast Blend
This is our biggest, boldest blend – a coffee with "big shoulders".
The source of Gold Coast Blend's bigness is a secret recipe of Latin America, Asia/Pacific and dark roast coffees. Created to celebrate the big city of Chicago, the interplay of these very different coffees weaves a deep and densely rich, sophisticated taste. A style all it's own, this coffee is truly one in a million.
I like knowing Starbucks is human too. By my account, that tag line has a typo at the end-"big shoulders". I may need to review my punctuation rules regarding quotes and punctuation inside or outside the end quote, but for now I am comforted to know that nobody-even Starbucks-is perfect.

Well, with my spring finals coming up, I needed a strong coffee! This one was definitely strong enough to keep me studying. I needed some caffeine to keep my eyes on the prize. But the prize this year was a few papers, two finals, and a bunch of reading. I had this coffe…

Connecticut Remembers Newtown

Connecticut Remembers Newtown this Friday

On Friday December 21st at 9:30am Gov. Malloy has asked us to offer a moment of silence in memory of our Newtown, Connecticut neighbors who died tragically last week. We hope you will join us and all of Connecticut in this solemn observance.

I think this was a very good reminder. The link takes you right to a pdf of the proclamation that describes the significance of remembering the events at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It's hard to think that this horrific shooting happened just a week ago. Even harder, is to think I was just blogging about "Change." As information about the shooting came trickling in via various sources of news, it's hardly the time for blogging. But little did I expect how life would change for those families. Horrible. How life could change for my family. The impact of this trauma has left it's mark…
