the unity of the Church

It is 1:15 PM Sunday afternoon in the flow of redemptive history. The Lord is building His Church. It has been raining off and on all day. We needed the rain. Right now it is wet and gray outside. Do not know if we will see the sun today.

I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. Carol was still sleeping when I decided to get up. So I got up made a fresh pot of coffee and got myself a glass of cold water. I sat in our dining room drinking cold water and seeking to slowly wake up to another week of Life. After waking up I messed with our main computer and then I wrote in my paper diary. Carol got up around 6:30 AM.

After writing in my paper diary I read for awhile from a book titled, 'The Path Of Christianity: The First Thousand Years' By John Anthony McGuckin. Carol and I went downtown this morning to Reader's World Bookstore. Carol wanted to get a Sunday newspaper and I went with her to look around at the books. At Reader's World I saw nothing that caught my interest. Carol got her Sunday paper and a children's book and we drove home. Downtown Holland is only a few minutes from where we live. We like living in town and not out in the country.

Carol left for church around 10 o'clock AM. I dozed will 11:15 AM and when I woke up I wrote in my paper diary and read from a book titled, 'The First Thousand Years: A Global History Of Christianity' by Robert Louis Wilken.

The day goes by normal. Carol is reading and I have been wandering my cell. Last night I read late into the night from a novel titled, 'Antland' By Charlie Kaufman.

Well there is nothing else to report. It looks like a very quiet week ahead of us. We are still in the midst of raging plague. People are dying and the US Government is in a huge state of chaos. It seems no one in leadership positions in the US Government knows what to do, but sit and their asses and wait for the collapse of the US economy/the end of the American way of life.
