I woke up this morning to see my car buried in snow. 20 minutes of shoveling and scraping got it drivable and then, sending up a quick prayer, I backed out into the alley hoping not to get stuck or spin out, and was on my way carefully, carefully to school. Saints preserve us, let's talk about how much snow 13 inches in one night actually is!
How bout a prayer for me as I go to Indy this weekend? Let's just hope it doesn't get too cold for your Florida bro!! I'll be going for my third lifetime sighting of this strange phenomenon you northerners call snow.

Whoa, whoa, whoa there Trevor - let's be careful how you throw around that term "northerners". I happen to now reside in the north (actually, the midwest) but that's a far cry from being a northerner. And of course, travel prayers for you ascending. Have fun in Indy!
I studied biblical and modern Hebrew with a rabbi while I was still in college, before starting seminary. I eventually got to the point that I started to think in Hebrew. It was one of the most mind-expanding things that I have ever done. You will be floored the first time you pick up a Bible and the Hebrew speaks to you.
I recommend the "Stone" edition of the TNK with the Hebrew and English on facing pages. A beautiful book for around $75.

Ryan, I had a great visit in Chicago the cold and snow waited til I was safely headed south again. My Methodist brother invited his asst. pastor to join us for dinner one night while I was there. Turns out her spiritual director is a female priest at Seabury, first name is Donna, I think???? Two great shows trying out in Chciago try and see them if you can. Goodle "Spamalot" and you will see why. We could not get tickets while I was there, but we did see "All Shook Up" the show with Elvis music. Lots of fun! Tom

Now, my boy, 36" in one day is worth whining about. That may happen before the winter is out. We are only half way through. Not even that, really.
And the first person to bandy about the word "northerner" in my direction gets baptized again...and I dunk! Trevor, I understand that you are a gentleman and a scholar. I expect you to keep a civil tongue. None of that foul language here.
It's not as if he called you a southerner. THAT would be an insult worth fighting over.
