There and Back Again

In the last 18 days, I...

...was out of town or traveling for all but 6
(and tried to stay on top of school at the same time)
...flew for the first time
(and I'm not joking)
...missed a connecting flight for the first time
(but was put on another one and made it to my hotel room by 1am)
...walked 40 minutes to church because I decided against taking a taxi
(but got a return ride from a great guy I met after the service)
...walked a mile to find ground transportation
(but used the underground shuttle the next time)
...experienced heavy turbulence for the first time
(and found that it's like jolting around on on old roller coaster)
...drove a full tank of gas without stopping for the first time
(and made it 420 miles, from the local gas station to the one at my destination)
...set personal records for travel to the north and the west
(and came close to a personal record for travel to the south)

...concluded that, wherever I live on this earth, Akron will always be home
(no buts or ands)



Finally Starting read what is said to be one of the greatest books penned by man.

The irony is that, today, reading the Institutes seems to be viewed as something that only theology nerds or super-spiritual Christians actually do -- whereas Calvin wrote the book as an introduction to the Christian faith.
