all people long for a paradisaic condition

It is 2:18 PM Sunday afternoon in the ongoing death flow. I am feeling wasted but I should write something before nightfall.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. Carol and I both got up at the same time. I got up made a pot of coffee and then a pot of oatmeal. I ate my oatmeal and then wrote in my paper diary.

Carol went to Covenant PCA this morning and did not get home till 12:35 PM. I spent the morning reading my books and writing in my paper diary. I also made a video for my Booktube channel this morning.

This morning I read primarily from a book titled, 'Reformed Preaching' by Joel R. Beeke.

I have been wandering my cell this afternoon and watching some professional football. I turned off the television, because I am tired. I get sick of all the TV commercials!

Last night I do not remember right now. I think I watched some professional football and then sat in the dark till 11 o'clock PM. I went to bed after I realized it would be crazy to stay up all night sitting in the dark.

Well I suppose I will close to feel drained.

She's a graduate of Wellsley College, of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. It's a pleasure to welcome you to the Beeson Podcast, Gwenfair.

Gwenfair Adams: It's a delight to be here. Thank you for inviting me.

Timothy George: We know you a little bit, because you've been to Beeson. You gave a Reformation heritage lecture several years ago. There were a smash hit down there. You did a wonderful job here. I want you to talk a little bit about your presentation, but begin by telling us a little bit about yourself. How you came to faith, your background ...
