OK, end of a long day, enjoying my G+T (the taste for which was one of the byproducts of training in a theological college....) and musing on several things.
The first is that my study is way overdue for a tidy up - might get a chance for that tomorrow.
The second is that I'm seriously knackered - I've tried to minimise the number of 4 service Sundays I take, but I couldn't avoid this one - so 3 HCs this morning (1 sermon), then Evensong tonight (second sermon, written this afternoon!), plus funeral visits etc - January being peak-funeral season - I feel a little stretched.
Third: might post my sermon from tonight (tomorrow, not now). Links in with lots of stuff, but I'm particularly thinking about a former tutor at the moment, and the influence he's had on me (huge).
Fourth: the reason why I was thinking about that tutor was because of a conversation about Gandhi that has started in ROE-T - that's RunningOnEmpty-Theology, the yahoo group that I've established, please join!!! - and thinking that he really knew what he was doing. In a sense, the direction I'm moving in (see this post) is a 'reverse Gandhi' - trying to resist the imperialism of oil culture from within. Not sure what the equivalent of a dhoti would be for an Anglican Rector, but I'll keep thinking ;o)
Fifth: still want to write more about the books I read. There's a review of the Cluetrain Manifesto bubbling away, and one or two others. But in the meantime, I've put a 'Bookshelf' in the side bar - should be there if you scroll down - so you can see the sorts of things I'm reading at the moment. I'll try and keep it up to date.
Sixth: you'll also see the 'CD rack'. Ripping all my CDs onto my hard disk has allowed me to get plugged back in to music - it used to be absolutely central to my life, then other things kicked in, now it's coming back. I'm particularly enjoying Coldplay at the moment, despite an initial negative reaction, whilst in a car with my friend PB... who should note the whole list ;-)
Seventh: I dunno. That's about enough for one night. Time to veg out in front of the telly.
