It's that time again, another Formica Friday, a treasure trove of hodgepodge, random tidbits, and a bit of this and that. What exactly is Formica Friday? Check out the tongue-in-cheek, I got away with this?, definition from the first post. A quote:
Poets and saints. What an odd coupling. And yet Freud, too, put them together, saying that they are the two classes of human beings who defy all his psychological categorizing, are full of surprises. Are we willing and able to be surprised?
-- Madeleine L'Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art
- Writing a sixteen page theological analysis in under eight hours
- Holding a 2nd century piece of Hebrews 11
- Hugging Anne Lamott
- Two hours with my best friend
- Two and a half hours talking about how it feels to walk on water
If you have yet to see what is arguably the worst best video ever, then you absolutely must watch Rebecca Black's Friday. Please note the awkward moment when Rebecca Black asks where she should sit and she happens to already be sitting.
The Week in Must-Read Posts
- My friend, Michael Nichols, is abroad studying at St. Andrew's this term and has written a worthwhile reflection on St. Paul's letter to the Galatians. We come at the idea of justification slightly differently, but we speak the same language of unity. Find the post here.
- Longtime blog-friend Elizabeth Esther shared a wonderful musing on the importance of being able to be honest in church over at Deeper Story. As always, she's a delight to read. Find the post here.
There really should be more, but I fell behind this week in reading people's posts even when they were so gracious to read mine. I'll be catching up this weekend and will likely be making this list longer next week. I also realized I don't have a system of marking posts I want to feature here, I just kind of think of what immediately comes to mind, which means I often leave out a post that I loved but didn't quite remember. I'm going to fix that.
And, as always, a post from me:
