It's been a good week. Last Monday night we had a good discussion of 1 John 5:6-15, talking about the witness of Spirit, blood and water and about confidence in prayer. I took Tuesday off to prepare for a three week youth group class I'm teaching about the end times, called The End. Last week we discussed some of the associations the students have with the end times and some of their questions. We're starting at the end and working backwards so we talked about the New Heavens and the New Earth, and the last judgment. Tomorrow night we'll look at the return of Christ and next week we'll talk about the Kingdom of God that is both present and future and about the "So what" question. How should we live in light of the end? Wednesday night I spent reading and taking Anthony over to Showplace and back. Thursday we had a meeting of our Library task force on Information and the Future where we decided to study Web 2.0 prior to doing a presentation on the concepts involved to interested staff next month. I also got to sport a Colts Super Bowl championship hat that Cindee brought me from Indianapolis. That night Steve and I went over to the Walters's where Steve vanquished his foes in a game of Starfarers of Cataan. Friday I got to help sort books the library was considering buying and pick a few for myself. That night it was Smackdown and reading before Eric came over to challenge Steve to some gamecube action. On Saturday I worked, watched some of the Pro Bowl and then headed over to play some games with Sarah, Becky, and Steve. I learned Rook. We also played Scattegories, Imaginiff, and I got to play Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit. For some reason I have trouble finding people who will play that with me. Sunday we heard a good sermon on the Trinity before heading to Panera for lunch and then a college ministry meeting. Last night we had a good information meeting at the church.
Verse of the day
"And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life." I John 5:11-12 (ESV)
