Random Udpates

My deepest and most sincere apologies for the lack of posts this semester. We haven't been up to a whole lot of interesting stuff this semester. Classes have kept us busier than ever. In fact, as I write this I am procrastinating going over a sermon I have to preach tomorrow and multiple papers that are due next week...including one on entire sanctification. Isn't college life a blast? haha. Anywho, I figured I'd write a quick post with some random updates...hence the name.

Spring break...errr March break...was nice. We got some much needed time of relaxation. Drank a lot of coffee at our favorite little spot...Red Whale. Got a bit of work done. We were able to make a day trip in to Maine. It's always nice to get back to the States...even if it is only for a few hours. We also made a 2 day trip to Sydney, Nova Scotia. That was quite the drive for the little amount of time we were able to spend there. We were checking out a possible internship opportunity with a church plant there. We've been praying a lot and are really excited about the possibilities of this opportunity.

I just recently finished A Generous Orthodoxy by Brian McLaren. I was working on it between the insane amount of homework I've been having to do. McLaren has become one of my favorite authors. He has a knack for making me think about old things in new ways. I appreciate the humor in his writing. I also read the Shack this semester. I devoured that one in one weekend. Good book. Also got me thiniking quite a bit. I appreciate books that don't give all the answers, but get me thinking about important issues. They challenge me.

I have been hooked on a Justin Timberlake song recently. Now, while I like his music, I do not usually find great depth in it's lyrical content. However, this song has impacted me. Between this song and just finishing up a monster of a research paper on homeless youth, my heart just breaks for people. Here's the song:

Tried to add some pictures but Blogger's not havin it tonight...sorry. I think that's it for now. The semester is coming to an end so hopefully I'll be able to keep this updated a little more faithfully. Have a great day everyone. much love
