Nearly forgot that today marks 6 years of the Eagle & Child.  I should have saved yesterday’s post for today, because I don’t have much to say.

We had Madeline’s friend party today. 12 kids running around screaming for 2 hours. (Thankfully we used one of the school’s banquet rooms.) Too much.  I think that marks me as an introvert, doesn’t it?  Or does that kind of crazy affect even the most extroverted of extroverts.

Otherwise, a relaxing day.

Happy blogiversary to me.

Yesterday I purchased an unusual book: A Life in the Bush: Lessons Learned from my Father. I stumbled upon it while browsing the books section at Every so often I want like to try something different to read. (If I never did that, I wouldn’t have discovered Bill Bryson or P.G. Wodehouse.)  This one is a memoir written by the son of a man who lived most of his life in Ontario’s Algonquin Park. I was planning to read The Culture of Fear, but I may just put everything else aside for now and read it instead.

    I love that you celebrate your blogiversary 🙂

    the definition of introvert/extrovert that I use is this: if you get your energy from others, you’re an extrovert. if you get your energy from being alone, you’re an introvert. and as a definite extrovert, I can tell you that being in a room with 12 7 year olds for two hours would wear me out too 🙂

    The book looks interesting. The combination of logging and parks could raise some issues. Let me know what you think of it.

    Count me among your appreciative readers, a what a couple you make.

    Your Bonhoffer quote is where I am, and it is an earthshaking change for a formerly almost double predestinarian Calvinist to become inclusive and see this bigger picture.

    Marc, I am confused by an Amazon search for Bonhoeffers books. Which ones did you read to get that quote and get his whole theological work?

  5. Marc

    I got that quote from his book Ethics and specifically this edition (except mine’s hardcover). This edition is the “critical” edition, and part of a series of his complete works. It has some changes to the text, making it significantly different than the mass-market paperback edition which matches the Cost of Discipleship edition you sent me.

    (Incidentally, I already have a copy of The Cost of Discipleship–do you want yours back?)

    Marc, If you’re desperate to get rid of a copy of The Cost of Discipleship, I’ll take it off your hands. It’s been on my to-read list for awhile.

    Ah! I was just going to say, “If Don doesn’t want it back, you can have it.” I see Don has already answered.

    It’s yours, Phil. I’ll bring it to P.A. next week.
