Forgive me father ::

It has been ten days since my last post... The trouble is this period is just so busy, first the Colloquium now the Intensive, teaching from 9:30am-6:30pm... Still struggling with how one does all the class work for an Introduction course in just a week. In particular how between that and the après block we manage to introduce students to critical study, while helping them to integrate this with their faith and practice. That's difficult enough in a one semester class, in a "block"...

I just had to post today though, last night when I got home there was a parcel, with a book, To the Usual Suspects: One Word Questions by John Goldingay. A while back I won a challenge from Finker to name the author of a quotation. Since the book being quoted was one of my all-time favorite works of theology I got it right, and Goldingay is my prize! I've only had time for a very quick squiz, but thank you Finker, you seem to have chosen really well. I love the title, and the extracts I've nibbled seem full of reality and good sense - just the kind of spiritual reading I need. Now I must just create the space to read it!

Oh, yes, and Stephen used one of my pictures of the Negev near Arad on a post about the desert mothers and fathers so spirituality is in the air - even if for now I am in a Martha season!

Stephen's request for a picture also reminded me I have not finished the "video" introduction for Arad, though I did Hazor and Beersheba a while back.

Maybe I can work finishing Gezer and Arad into my Marying next week!
