Narnia



Well I have a few minutes right now but nothing burning in me to blog about so we will see where this goes... School is still going well. I have been carrying my Greek flashcards with me everywhere and flipping through them when I get a chance. My pastoral theology class has been fun. We have spent a lot of time in Ephesians and 1 Timothy. I have been using my new Greek interlinear Bible and it is making some sense. My Wednesday night Bible class that I have been teaching has been great although rather sparsely attended. Each week there are about 12 people there. We have five more weeks to go. We are studying C.S. Lewis' book The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. If you haven't heard by now, the book is being made into a full length movie that will be released on December 9th. The same people who did the special effects for The Lord of the Rings are working on this movie. I hope it lives up the hype. Disney is behind this one and the website for the movie is pretty cool. You should check it out. I love all of the books in the Chronicles of Narnia series. I remember that my third grade teacher Mr. Kerstin read some of them to us in class. I remember them vividly. We would come in from lunch recess and lay down on the carpet in the reading center and drift away to the land of Narnia. How I wanted to be there with Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. What great adventures they had. Little did I know I was learning about God the Lion of Judah. The books seem to get better with age. If you haven't picked them up in a while I highly recommend it. If you have never read them it is time to start. If anyone wants my notes from my class just let me know in the comments section or you can email me. I would be happy to share. Well I guess I found something to write about after all. I will give you an update on Oktoberfest as soon as I get the pictures from my friend Joey. Take care.

P.S. Happy Birthday Dawn!!
