It is cold and wet here today and I am cranky. Not sure the reason for the crankines. Could be the weather, could be that I am bored, could be that it's just my turn!
I have been reading a blog that comments a lot about the Southern Baptist Convention and the turmoil they are experiencing within that denomination right now. Very strange to me that each denomination knows exactly what God is thinking and what He does and does not approve of. Has anyone read The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis? All of this "stir" reminds me of that. And I am not talking about just SBC - I am talking about a lot of what is going on in the world right now.
Next week-end Steve and I are volunteering at the Diocesan convention to be held at the National Cathedral. We are ballot passer outers. Should be, I hope, fun and interesting. If you need something from the Cathedral let me know. I am assuming that the bookstore will be open. Yesterday during Sunday School Fr David talked about a book called Misquoting Jesus. It is about how through mistakes made (unintentionally I assume) when scribes copied manuscrpits changed the sub-text of some of the scriptures dramatically. I am going to look for it here at borders (HA!) and I will let you know what I think.
I have started reading Memiors of a Geisha and really like it. I was told that I should read the book before I see the movie. We all know how often I make it to the movies so that should not be a problem at all!!
Off on an adventure to Solomons Island with Bob. Hopefully that will put an end to my crankiness. If not I can always get glad in the same clothes I got mad in!!!
