By popular demand, I must post something. Hello everyone! I am back at home on Christmas break and enjoying the time with family away from studying. I had a very good semester learning more about what it means to be a godly man in this world and I was encouraged by friendships which continued to develop. I pray that I would accept the responsibility that accompanies these great blessings.

I recently read Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday and enjoyed it very much.  It is such a profound work theologically as it eloquently presents an argument for character-building as the explanation for suffering. It is also an engaging mystery thriller written by a master of the English language. I especially enjoyed the witty dialogue between the characters. My favorite quote is Syme's conclusion: "Bad is so bad, that we cannot but think good an accident; good is so good, that we feel certain that evil could be explained." How true!
