New week…

Wednesday, 3:42 PM This has already been a long week. I have spent Monday and Tuesday carrying over 300 boxes of books. On a more pleasant note, I was encouraged by Renee Altson’s participation in the comment section of my review of her book. I truly encourage all to read through her journal. It will be a difficult, but transformative experience.

This morning Professor Chuck Degroat likened the Beatitudes of Matthew 5  unto eating the dust of our Lord. Faithful disciples of the rabbis would follow so closely to them that it is said that they tasted the dust from their rabbi’s sandals in front of them. Likewise, our call is to follow our Lord so closely that we taste His dust. This life of allegiance and meekness is a hard one indeed.

    Hey Uri,

    Cool site. I stumbled into it from Josh Leim’s blog, and I saw your name when I was reading Reggie’s blog the other day. Don’t listen to this Chuck DeGroat fellow. He wants to turn the world into a Dutch colony. Only kidding. Chuck is my hero.

    Cool PCA poll. I was surprised by the responses. I don’t think a divisive denomination can serve as a great example as ‘orthodoxy with in-fighting’ is no good. On a presbytery and GA level it seems that the majority is becoming more narrow. Anway, those are my $0.02 from where I sit. I feel somewhat disheartened.

    Keep up the blog and enjoy your time at RTS!
