There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

Miscellaneous, but not marginal

a couple of things for you to be aware of–miscellaneous, but not marginal or unimportant matters

  1. As you may have heard, last Monday several folks went down to Oak Cliff to serve and share a meal with some people living with AIDS who reside in a non-profit-run apartment complex. The non-profit is named AIDS Services of Dallas. We met several residents and made conversation over some spaghetti. (Nod to Ellen for the lilting Italian music playing in the background.) These residents are not incapacitated–one adjoining complex houses the more serious sufferers. Alina has set up a blog to keep everyone who serves (or would like to serve) in the loop about delegating who’ll be bringing what. Send her an email if you’d like to be able to receive the feed from the blog, or Erika, if you’d like to help us out going forward.
  2. This Sunday, we’re taking the ideas you harvested from John 3 that you thought might be included in an explanation of the Gospel and working them through those concerns about intelligibility, credibility, and plausibility. One of you sent me an article yesterday by someone who’s sought to give explanation to her faith in her workplace; she acknowledges past failures, identifies the weaknesses of the traditional modes of getting the faith across, and then charts a way forward in how to be salt and light in your surroundings. Have a look.
