Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Fortune Cookie; Southern Preachers and the Marketting of em

Had fascinating conversation today at the China House in the town where my Mother was raised and Baptized.
Lady knew William Faulkner when she was teaching at Ole Miss.
You just never know.

My fortune cookie said: "Soon you will be recognized and honored as a community leader". On the way to get some gas at 59 right after that I met a woman going the other way.
What a day, what a day.

Here's what else is on my mind; just click away

Blogger bapticus hereticus said...

Winkler, the reviewer states: As a human being as well as the resident holy person, a minister acts out personal struggles with faith and doubt on the public stage of church and community, and the public scrutinizes almost every facet of the pastor's life. No matter how grounded in the faith or how secure in self-understanding, the minister lives under the shadow of sin just like every other human being and yet is expected to be the parson—the public person—and to bear the standard of morality.

bapticus hereticus: The minister is a symbol, a broken symbol, a symbol still capable of pointing beyond the self _to_ the standard of morality. And that is a scandal of the gospel; that is, God uses broken symbols to point to the power of redemption and love that knows no boundary. And our response to God for such, "no, you can't."
