Busy Days Are Here Again
My days have been busy this week - enough that blogging took a back seat. Here's the rundown:
Sunday: My friend Mark was baptized Sunday morning at University Baptist Church, expressing his commitment to Christ, acting out death to sin and resurrection to life in God. Praise God!
Sunday Afternoon: A relaxing, enjoyable run with my running buddy, then out for a beer to watch the beginning of the Cubs-Atlanta game.
Sunday Evening: Sat down with a friend and housemate to review material from a Bible study we're in - and he decided to become a Christian. We prayed and his life has changed - I'm amazed. This is the first time this has happened like this with me. Praise God!!! (P.S.: The passage we were studying was Philippians 2:19 - 30.)
Monday: Ah, class. Yes... driving 2.5 hours to Chicago, and back. And a minor conversation with a Ford County Sherrif's Deputy about 11:10 PM on Illinois 115. Driving too fast is expensive.
Tuesday: Slept in because I got home late. Worked all afternoon and evening. Went to the King's Club International Ministries to work with kids. That was an experience, let me tell you. Cubs lose 9 - 8.
Wednesday: Schoolwork and meetings. Yum. Bible study on Philippians 3:1 - 11. Cubs win 12 - 3.
Thursday (today): My good friend, John ZuHone, presented "The Search for Extraordinary Intelligence: Evidence for Intelligent Design in Astronomy" to the Illini Christian Faculty and Staff. I will soon be able to say "I knew him when..." John is an Astronomy/Cosmology student at the University of Chicago. His presentation was excellent. Did you know that if you change the gravitational constant by a fraction of a percent, life can't exist? Astronomers agree that there must be some sort of design in the universe - but leave the questions of God to the philosophers and theologians.
