How did I review the first and third of a trilogy without reviewing the second? I stayed up too late reading it and it just didn’t make my to do list! Ha ha haa! So, here we go: an out-of-order review for Wendy Darling: Volume 2: Seas by talented Lutheran author Colleen Oakes.
Good and bad ways to think about religion and politics? Yes! Dr. Robert Benne, Professor of Theological Ethics at the Institute of Lutheran Theology, wrote exactly that title. And here’s a free study guide to go along with it!
Thank you, Lord, for Lutheran writers. Thank you for Lutheran readers who can suggest books I hadn’t heard of! Good and Bad Ways to Think about Religion and Politics may be just what I need! Also, God bless Dr. Pless, who writes some of the best handouts & study guides out there! 🙂
What are antidotes for drama? Trust. Patience. Love. Honestly? Unconsciousness. Sleep is looking pretty good to me these days.
What else can you think of? I do love a good book. I played extra piano yesterday. There’s been so much on my heart lately. Too much to do. Too many ways to turns.
But at least there are still things well worth pouring one’s heart out for. So let’s remember that. 🙂
Today my middle daughter turns 9. We’ll have sour cream scones for breakfast and apple pie following schwarma for dinner. I’ll cut butter, shred cucumber for tzatziki, and spend time with my family.
Maybe today the only drama will be between my daughters.
I shared this on Facebook because it really is a great deal. Christianbook.com is having a sale. Now, they almost always have sales, but if you’re interested in the 1o volume set Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, this is the sale! 79% off! Only $149.99.
Is it explicitly Lutheran? No. Will you find it as a common resource in LCMS pastor offices? Yes. It’s published by Eerdmans.
Blessed Epiphany! Happy Day! 🙂 AND I get to tell you about a tremendous resource I’ve just found out about! It’s a keyboard book with easier Bach! By that I mean, Sight-Reading & Harmony: Progressive Pieces for Keyboard, Grades 1-10, Selected from Four-Part Chorales by JS Bach is rocking my world!
