about that homework...


The Webber chapters I read on Thursday were from the 1994 edition... We are using the Revised edition.



There is a difference--a difference of about a hundred pages and drastically altered content.



Four hours of reading down the drain. I begin again. 100 pages to go. It is material for a quiz on Monday, and I don't have tomorrow to read. ... And I must be up at 5:00 A.M. Lord, I don't want to just zone out and be present at these services. I want You to speak to me there. I NEED You to speak to me there...

done with the 100 pages


I have mostly finished it. I have to admit that I skimmed. I found that some of the material was similar, just very much re-packaged. I did read the new chapters. I found that there was a positive element to doing the re-reading. I have had a very negative view of this book because of the apparent bias toward extremely traditional worship. I'm pleased to see that in the revised edition, Webber has incorporated extensive discussion of the impact of his discussion on contemporary churches and churches that use "convergent" methods (drawing on the traditional as well as the contemporary. I feel a lot less like I'm supposed to worship differently somehow, or like the new is wrong. I'm pleased about this. I'm still not very pleased about my bedtime or the fact that I have four remaining theology chapters to read... I wanted a free day on Wednesday, particularly after today. I am taking the laptop in the car tomorrow. I am going to get my free day.

update on the long long day


My prayer was answered. I stayed awake, and God spoke to me--not once but six times: in every service. I will post notes in the morning. I still have a bunch of homework to do tomorrow, and I am determined to have my no-homework day on Wednesday and use the day for a bit of research on paper stuff and some personal stuff.



I did not take Meg with me. She stayed home with Alexis. When I got home, she acted all excited like I had been gone all her life. I have never known her to do this. She then got a birthday biscuit, and that was fun.



Goodnight.
