INDIANAPLOIS Last week it was my delightful privilege to speak to hundreds of students and parents at our regional training conference in Indianapolis. I spoke for over an hour to the students, over an hour to the parents and then I stood around for three hours talking to friends old and new after that. We drove back to Hinsdale with Dewy Novotny and Victor Weib. The conversation made the over three-hour trip seem like minutes.
CHUK Charles passed another test while we were in Indianapolis so we celebrated that, too. Chuk is only three tests short of his B.A. degree and only 20 years old. He is exploring missions and ministry options now that his degree completion is in sight. He has some very exciting ministry ideas.
CHURCH Yesterday morning we attended the smallest church we have been in four years, but I left with tears of conviction on my face and a deeper desire to seek the Lord in my heart. The pastor is Dr. Tim Sisk, who is a professor and chair of the World Missions & Evangelism department at Moody Bible Institute. Here is a link to the delightful little church
CAMBRIDGE I was fascinated by reading John Piper’s account of his study sabbatical in Cambridge.
READING Saturday and Sunday I had some time to read a fascinating book about C. S. “Jack” Lewis and the influence of Ireland, Ulster, and County Down on his imagination and writing. The book is called “A Shiver of Wonder.” Lois caught me reading it on my little corner of the stone back porch.
Adam: “God, Why did you make Eve so beautiful?”
God: “So you would be attracted to her.”
Adam: “Why did you make her such an airhead?”
God: “That was so that she would be attracted to you.”
