In case you’re curious about some of the reviews I hope to get to, here’s something of a review list. I have a ton of non-fiction that I’d love to read, but, to be honest, my kids are young enough that sometimes non-fiction still makes me sleepy. Sad but true. So this will be a review list of fiction and lighter non-fiction. Please do give me the credit to think I have vast tomes I plan to get to eventually, ha ha ha, and if you’ve sent me something to review and it’s not on the list, by all means send me a little reminder. Thanks!
I saw a little article with some general encouragement in it and thought I’d share it with you. The long and the short of it is that one is never too old to embrace the time and opportunities given to them. 🙂
When I was at the Good Shepherd Institute this past November, I heard a presenter wonder aloud whether there are people we could consider church fathers of music. I’m really struck by the idea. What do you think?
I had a random thought. You know how Satan even attacks small talk? How much more might he attack written words? What a scary, humbling thought. 🙁 O, Key of David, open and shut our mouths according to your will. Set a watch upon our mouths, O Lord. Amen.
Wow! I’ve added a lot of Lutheran poets to my Theological Poets page! You should check it out. Now, if only we could get the Concordia Historical Institute to do a project on Lutheran poets . . . 🙂 Plus, below is another O Antiphon bit from Wikipedia. Come, O Root of Jesse!
