We went to a baseball game tonight. Fall ball. Brrrrrr….it’s cold at night now. When did that happen? Time is flying by.
Speaking of time flying by…at the game I walked down memory lane. One of the fathers graduated from high school three years ahead of me. I remember that he was in my Biology class when I was a freshman…he was always too cool to ever be friends with geeky me…though he was one of the nicer cool kids. We had a good time reminiscing about all of the teachers who graced the halls of Woodbury High School as well as the elementary schools. No matter who I speak to about high school, I always feel like I went to school in a completely different era than my contemporaries. It’s fun though.
Speaking of time flying by…I am spending more time reading right now than I did when I was a university student. I’m reading books for review. I’m reading books on apologetics. I’m doing research on the stickier parts of the Bible. My brain is attempting to process a bunch of information. And I thank God for people who are smarter than I. Tim Keller for example…smart guy. One day I am going to his church in Manhattan just so I can personally thank him. I’m learning a lot from The Reason for God. Some of the things that I read make me cringe…as my wrong perceptions of my faith are being brought to light. Some of the things that I read are literally helping me sleep better at night. This is one of those books that I will keep closeby so that I can re-read it frequently.
Something about me is changing. For so long, I had the hardest head of anyone that I know. Recently, I’ve found myself…more teachable. Instead of reading things or listening to them and jumping to my own conclusions, I am digesting the argument, the points, and I am truly eating the meat and spitting out the bones. There is a bit more eating and a bit less spitting going on.
