A Few Random Thoughts

... from an oxycodone-fogged mind.

Monday was surgery day -- the hernia I had in September of 03 came back, and I wanted to get it fixed before it got too bad. I waited five years to get that one fixed, and it was NOT pretty. Also had to spend a week in the hospital after the surgery. This time, it was outpatient, so I'm home, but I'm still hurting. I SHOULD be OK to drive to school tomorrow, though, as long as I don't take my medication before I try to drive.

I've been reading a lot of Andrew Fuller lately, for class. I've said it before, but I'll say it again -- this is someone that everyone should be familiar with. He was a driving force in turning around the English Particular Baptists in the 18th Century, at a time when hyper-Calvinism had really taken hold and was hindering church growth. His apologetic and polemic works are outstanding, and incredibly well-thought-out. And his sermons are inspiring. I may set up an Amazon "So you want to ..." list with some recommended books on him for those who are interested, but that probably won't be until Saturday or Sunday.

Work on the new template has been nonexistant lately, but I know a little better what I want to do. The creative part is almost over, so now I actually have to try and build the thing. And I think everyone will like it -- if nothing else, the colors will be a bit easier on the eyes. And the newspaper links are going away.

Time magazine's 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in American wasn't quite what I was expecting. I think that Joe Carter's series at Evangelical Outpost is much better. But one think got me thinking -- both lists show how diverse the evangelical community is. You have to wonder what would happen if all these people got together and worked together in a more concerted effort to share the Gospel with the world. Of course, many of them would have some theological differences that they would have to work out (or agree to disagree on) first.

Well, I'm due for more medication, and after that I doubt I'll be able to blog anything even remotely coherent. Might be back this evening or later tonight. If not, I WILL be posting on Saturday. I might even have the rest of my "Faith and Reason" series finished ...
