"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." (1 Corinthians 13:12)KJV

My Theological Worldview

This fits me fairly well. Another test challenge from Laura . She comes out more Wesleyian than I do.

You scored as Reformed Evangelical. You are a Reformed Evangelical. You take the Bible very seriously because it is God's Word. You most likely hold to TULIP and are sceptical about the possibilities of universal atonement or resistible grace. The most important thing the Church can do is make sure people hear how they can go to heaven when they die.

I am Karl Barth (or so the test says)

You scored as Karl Barth. The daddy of 20th Century theology. You perceive liberal theology to be a disaster and so you insist that the revelation of Christ, not human experience, should be the starting point for all theology.

June Musings

June has always been one of my favorite months. Whether it is because it brings back memories of school letting out or because I usually take a week of vacation during June, it has a sense of freedom and rest that I don't quite experience the other 11 months of the year. It really doesn't have much to do with the weather; SoCal is infamous for its June Gloom -LNAEMLC (late night and early morning low clouds) that burns off by noon. I haven't experienced a summer vacation off from school since I graduated from college 21 years ago so it's not like the school memory is all that fresh, yet the thought of staying outside and playing until after 8pm with the sun still there shining brings bliss to my mind.
I took a week off last week to do work around the house and except for my weekend camping with the church, didn't make it outside much. I think that's why it has been so hard to come back to work this week -I didn't get the play I usually experience when I go to high school camp the last week of June (my HS camp counseling experience is postponed until August, TUSD doesn't get out in time for our kids to go to Thousand Pines this year; we had to find another camp instead.)
