Much has happened in the last few days. My birthday on the 26th was a pleasant time with a fine cigar from a friend and a fabulous dinner from my lovely wife.

One of my great joys this semester has been my preaching lab with the Rev. John Holland. He is a disciple of Richard Pratt, one of the instrumental voices in my theological training. Our class will make some fine pastors and preachers one day. Our group went out for a beer afterwards where we continued our great fellowship.

I was very pleased also with the outstanding performance of the Brazilian girls yesterday as they defeated the US 4×0. Last night I was able to watch a re-run of the match. A fascinating result in light of the fact that these Brazilian girls will go back home (whether or not with the title) to a country that does not encourage a Women’s Soccer League. Some of these girls don’t even have phones in their homes. This is the triumph of perseverance and determination.
