Hokey Pokey passed away

I got this in an email from a friend who fowarded it from one of his professors:

"Sad News
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is
worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went
unnoticed last week.
Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the
age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the
coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
Shut up. You know it's funny."

New Glass

We recently had a rose window installed at our new building. The man who made it crafts all his windows in the old way: real lead, hand made glass. Take a look.

Chiggy-check the links

Look left. We figured out how to add links to our blog! Here's a word of caution: links on a blog are like books on a bookshelf: display of a book does not necessarily constitute endorsement of the entire content of the book. In fact, I have a good friend who displays his books with their bindings toward the back of the bookshelf; his reasoning includes something about not be judged on the basis of books he may or may not have read. But I'm not talking about books; check out the links!

Blogging about something other than not-blogging

Since many of you were beginning to think this was less a blog about the Reeves and more a blog about our inability to consistently blog (see "Like we were saying..." from Tuesday, December 21, 2004, and "Fast and Furious" from Monday, February 27, 2006), here's some meat.

Wanna good "we should get together and talk about this" movie? See Equilibrium. A bit of a slow start, but the socio-cultural questions are interesting. Additionally, for us citizens of another world, the implicit assertions regarding the meaning of freedom and liberation should be more deeply pursued than the intended socio-cultural ones: "Okay, sure, you're free from a lifeless life. But what are you free to?" For skeptics, keep in mind that even Diane liked it.

Books? If you have time, take a read of Meredith Kline's "Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview." Kline is his own worst enemy, as his writing style is somewhat inaccesible. But, given time, you'll get used to it, and grow to enjoy it. Here's a snippit from the cover: As intimated by the subtitle, Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview, the immediate literary focus of this study is the book of Genesis and its account of the formative ages in the eschatological movement of the kingdom of God from creation to consummation. Bonus: the book is free for the downloading here. Also, if you are interesting in further chasing the subject of covenant theology (and if you are a believer, you should be) Michael Horton's "God of Promise: Introducing Covenant Theology" might be a good start. I say "might" because I haven't read it, as it has just recently been released.

Music? In our kitchen we have been enamored with David Gray's "White Ladder" and "Life in Slow Motion." We are forever indebted to aunt Nay Nay for pointing us in his direction. Thanks Nay! Check out David Gray right here.

These should keep you busy. Let us know what you think!
