The Reformation by Dr. MacKenzie

One of many celebratory books coming out this month releases today: The Reformation by Rev. Dr. Cameron A. MacKenzie.  I think very highly of Dr. MacKenzie, who teaches at Concordia Theological Seminary, and it looks to be a beautiful, coffee-table worthy book, chock full of tidbits, sidebars, images, and maps.

You know what’s scarier than looking back through your email inbox? Looking back through your neglected blog drafts. Yikes!

Nooks and crannies, folks. Dark closets. Crumpled notes. <shiver>

This time I’m just going to look away and wish you well. I hope to type up two reviews for you tomorrow! 🙂

Even a little bit of writing

Hello! Today I’m quoting something from a health program I’m participating in (Omada). Here’s hoping it doesn’t break copyright! This post is purely for educational purposes! 🙂 Anyway, before you read the paragraph, read just this little bit: “[S]cience has shown that even a little bit of writing helps you gain clarity, reduce stress, and deal with challenges more effectively.”

I love RhymeZone.com. What rhymes with holy? Ravioli and Mostaccioli! (And, my spell-checker thinks I meant to write molestation.)

Seriously, folks. Let’s keep it human and with a sense of humor. 😀

Calling a sick day. Really, I blame Facebook syndrome. I’ve though of several good posts in the last two weeks, but sketched ’em out in my mind and never got ’em to black on white! Sigh. So, sick day. No post worked up ahead of time. Bleh

Bits and Bites

A few public service announcements:

People, when you quote Luther online or in a book, please, please, please include an actual reference to the man himself. Seriously, it’s like proof texting went from the Bible to Luther. Let’s bring context back! And the ability to read and study more on various topics! 🙂

Also, it looks like CPH will be having a good number of good looking books debut in October. I typically post on them on their release day, but I’ll try not to just advertise CPH all the time. That could get to be tedious blog-reading (and blog-writing!). Still, you may want to save up a little spending money for October.

Random resource: Do you know about Librivox? Basically it’s a website where you can have all sorts of great books read aloud to you! AWESOME! Yay books!

Tweaking Website

This weekend I’ve been tweaking the website, organizing pages, and trying to fill out some of my resource pages. Could you look around and tell me if it’s easier to navigate? I’m always open for suggestions.

Also, if you could tell me your opinion, there are a few posts I’ve written, like Vocational Jumpstarts, that I’m especially proud of. Would it be silly for me to add a little side menu for Recommended Posts?
