Another quiz: "What's your model of the church?"

This was an interesting quiz to take, given my progressive theology. And I imagine it was a bit skewed in the results because of that. But it's still kinda interesting, and in the end, just about right – serving others first, followed by Mystical Communion (what a nice phrase). And institutional way, way at the bottom.

So what, exactly, is it?

Everytime this issue comes back in the news (which, over the past couple of years, it has happened quite regularly), I keep having to wonder exactly why it's happening. Today, there is an article in the New York Times about the Methodist church, and divisions that are brewing between those who feel that gays and lesbians should be able to be full participants, and those who do not.

Wilma, Alpha, Rain Forest, and Artic Methane

It's beautiful here. The fog is just burning off, the temperature is a very comfortable 60 degrees, and it looks like the sun is going to shine for most of the day (although they say it might rain.)

So it seems a bit odd to talk about hurricanes and such. But the news warrants it, I think.

Flock

There is a new browser, just out, called Flock. It is the friggin' bees knees! I somehow managed to get on the list of people who are getting the developer's preview. I don't exactly know how that happened, but I don't care.

Studying for a midterm exam …

… is giving me a headache. I am realizing how completely and utterly I forgot how to study for exams. I think the last exam I took was grad school some 20+ years ago. I never gave exams, so the exam mentality is completely gone from my brain. Spinning in my head is Sumer and Akkad, Joshua and Judges, where Meggido is on a map, what the settlement models are for Israel, etc., etc. The hope is, by Thursday morning, it will all be organized so I can answer questions!

We'll see.
