- good talk by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre on " What's Next" or she said
her first title was " Literature: Equipment for Living." I will have more to say
as I am pondering much that she said about the cultural shift coming and
where universities are going : STEM, etc...
- the NC mts. are in early Spring and it was such good nourishment
to see the many shades of green!
here. ( last is my favorite on Living Books)
- Book Club was yesterday on Eric Metaxas' Bonhoeffer. Hoping my dear friend
who hosted will post photos soon. The length of the book was challenging and
the subject of a life of a pastor during the Nazi regime was challenging to ourselves
too. What do we learn from such an obedience to the will of God?
- favorite poem these Spring days:
Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.
What is all this juice and all this joy?
A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning
In Eden garden. – Have, get, before it cloy,
Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.
