I didn’t do any posts last night, but if I had, I would have said that 38 years ago last night, MLK was shot.

Time Change Got Me

April 02, 2006 By: dlature3 Category: Uncategorized

I forgot about the time change (I thought about it briefly late last night, and was going to check to see if it was this weekend, then I forgot). When I checked email this morning, I saw the notice that my clock had been changed for Daylight Savings Time. I thought it was 8:30 am, when It was really 9:30.

Back to Nashville

June 26, 2005 By: Theoblogical Category: Uncategorized

We spent last night in Cincinnati with Janet’s folks , and are up and about ready to hit the road again this morning back to Nashville.

I was happy to include amongst my “vacation happenings” some more reading and jostling about with RO, Eric, and Charlie. I am happy whenever someone “stops by” more than once to comment, and feel like (almost) someone has dropped by my house to see me. OUr blogs are a lot like “hangouts”, and the line between “turf” seems to blur. The “social space” we have here is something I would like to delve into more deeply, being the “Sociology type” that I am (and Tony Campolo fan, as most recently Hauerwas, who provide us with a good bit of “distinctively Christian” sociological insight.

Talk to you all later (we’ll be home late afternoon, and return the van by 3pm CST. Better get going.
