What’s Cookin’? 104

Highlight(s) of the week: (1) Phillies are in the NLCS and are actually up in the series. I can smell the World Series. (2) Amanda and I took Giselle pumpkin picking and to Peddler’s Village. We had a great time. (3) My uncle Bob came in from Oregon – we got to talk politics, the emerging church, and other church things

Book(s) I’m reading: still reading Jesus for President by Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw

Music I’m diggin’: Jason Morant’s Open; Derek Webb’s The Ringing Bell

Podcast’s I’m lovin‘: Emergent Podcast interviews with (a) Phyllis Tickle and (b) Tim Keel; I usually always listen to Mars Hills’ podcast – last one I listened to was called “Shine Like Stars;” APM: Speaking of Faith with Krista Tippett – most recently I listened to an interview she had with Jaroslav Pelikan on the importance of creeds

Something(s) that blew my mind: (1) Brett Myers apparently is the most consistent hitter on the Phillies; (2) the Franke Installation into the Lester and Kay Clemens Professorship in Missional Theology was extraordinarily good (I hope to blog about this later) – particularly enjoyed Scot McKnight and Tim Keel…McLaren is always good

Ministry update: last night we emphasized AIDS/HIV awareness in our youth group program. We had a few technical errors because I forgot my cord to connect my laptop to the projector so I had to transfer everything to another computer, which never goes well for me. But overall I think it went well.

Seminary update: starting a new class tomorrow on the historical books of the Old Testament with Gary Schnittjer

Looking forward to: (1) game 4 of the NLCS; (2) UnderOath and The Devil Wears Prada show on October 22; (3) soccer game tonight

– what you are saying about teaching your students about HIV/AIDS awareness. I am looking into our students preparing AIDS Care Worker Packages through World Vision. You pack supply boxes for AIDS care workers.

– the Phylls Tickle podcast. She gives a lot of great history there.
– being at the Franke installation. (Cool that you’re dad came too)

Happy for you:
-regarding the Phillies. I guess they’re my favorite of what’s left. Just don’t want Boston to win, so go phils.
– pumpkin picking with Elle. We took Nathan but he wasn’t much help in selecting one. That’s ok.
