Ahhhhhhhh. Internet again. I dont have my computer on this trip and so blogging is sporadic. My apologies. Heres an update.
Camp was fantastic and the whole family loved it. Great people, great time.
Friday we went to Birmingham for the day and drove through the night, getting a few zzzzz's in the rest areas once or twice in the night. Saturday we ended up at a friends house in Gifford, south of Edinburgh, where we stayed the night. Sunday I dropped the family off in Aberdeen where they sailed home on the LOVE BOAT. I flew down to London on a standby which was nice of British Airways, considering my flight was supposed to be Monday.
Stayed last night with Shannon and Anita, and went for a drink at the Prospect of Whitby, one of the oldest pubs in London with a history going back to 1510.
Meeting today with CMS in London and off to Switzerland tomorrow morning for Eurochurch conference.
I feel REALLY good. Travel pumps me up and helps me to see life from a fuller perspective. Had a nice prayerful walk through London this morning on the way to work. I seem to function better in motion than being still. Must be how I was made. Thankful that I have a job that lets me move around and be involved in many places.
My copy of John MacArthur's book The Truth War arrived and I have read it through. It was a little depressing, reading his critique of the emerging church which he likened to a poopslide (from a Greek word in the letter of Jude meaning a poop stain on one's undergarment, as in an unfortunate SKID, you know what i mean). Must say more on this later but for now, let me just say that the Emerging Church is not, I repeat, NOT the new skid on the jock.
