This morning I left the house around 11:30 AM to get money at our credit union and then get dog food for Rudy. After I got dog food I drove into town to see if a fellow I talked to last week was at Action Community Kitchen for a meal/lunch. Action Community Kitchen uses the big kitchen at Western Theological Seminary for serve meals to those who are hungry. So I drove over to Western Theological Seminary (the seminary for the Reformed Church In America) and asked around if anyone knew a fellow named Doug around 55 years old, kind of thin with short hair and a short beard. At Action Community Kitchen I ran into a lady I have talked to at the Herrick Public Library used books store and asked her if she knew this fellow Doug. Well to make a long story short did not find Doug but at least I tried. While at the seminary I visited their bookstore and bought a book titled, "A New Heaven and a New Earth: Reclaiming Biblical Eschatology" by J. Richard Middleton.
I have two other books by Middleton in our library-
"The Transforming Vision: Shaping a Christian World View"
"The Liberating Image: The Imago Dei In Genesis 1"
I drove home from the seminary in a rain storm. I spent the afternoon writing in my paper diary and reading my books. So has gone existence. Nothing wild came in the mail this afternoon. This morning I ordered two books from Amazon, one used book on modernism and one new book on the doctrine of union with Christ.
Well, I suppose I will close to face the coming darkness. How deep is the well?
"To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" Colossians 1:27
I have been mainly reading today when not watching the birds or snow falling these two books-
"Hidden But Now Revealed: A Biblical Theology of Mystery" by G. K. Beale & Benjamin L. Gladd
"The Second Letter To The Corinthians" [The Pillar New Testament Commentary] by Mark A. Seifrid
"Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee" 2 Corinth. 1:22,23
