Here are another couple pictures from vacation, this time hiking up in the Bridger range near where I grew up skiing as a kid. These hills helped me know God and that's the truth. First one is with my family: Sonja, Grace, and Isaiah.
Back, now, after a month away, I'm aiming to pick up some speed here. Briefly:
I spoke at the celebration of 100 years of Lutheran Campus Ministry in Chicago
Visited my family in Bozeman and celebrated by dad's 80th
Attended a wedding of a long-time friend in Spokane
Taught at Holden Village on faith and pop culture
Spent time with former New Haven friends in Vancouver BC
Our first night back, around the dinner table, none of us could come up with one bad day. It was great. Here is one picture of Lake Chelan just to the left of the boat dock where the Lady of the Lake drops off for the trip up Railroad Creek to Holden Village. Click on it for its full spectacular beauty.
While I was away, I read Wise Blood (finally) and began The Habit of Being, both by Flannery O'Connor. More on that soon, but I'm still reeling. She is quite disorienting.
