their desire to read the Bible in dialogue with the exegetical tradition of the church

It is 9:17 AM Friday morning in the ice flow. I keep hoping when I wake up in the morning I will feel the season of Spring in my old bones. We have noticed our birds getting more active. God's creatures know Spring is near. One can feel the cold winter earth yearning for Spring time.

My wife just left to visit a friend. I have been reading these books for morning worship.

Bible (New King James translation)

"Acts" New Testament VI Reformation Commentary On Scripture Edited By Esther Chung-Kim & Todd R. Hains

"Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible" General Editor Kevin J. Vanhoozer

I got up this morning with my wife around 6 o'clock AM. I made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. I had a normal morning thus far. I might leave this morning to visit thrift stores.

Last night I read my books and watched television. Carol and I went to bed around 9 o'clock PM.

music Tim Hecker "Ravedeath 1972"

After having music I read "Hopeful Monsters" a novel by Nicholas Mosley. I read from 9:30 PM till 10:35 PM the novel by Mosley. I find this novel not easy to read, but I continue to read it because it is interesting. I have not gotten completely bored with it yet.

So here I sit feeling drained. I should go someplace while the sun is shining.

Well I suppose I will close to feel at a lost. Existence keeps speeding by!

"the primary role of the preacher is to proclaim the pure gospel of Christ by the Spirit's inspiration"

"[1] I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
[2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
[3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
[4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." Second Timothy 4:1-4
