Odds & Ends

  • Gray skies and damp -- but at least the temperature's moved above freezing. (This past week was cold!)
  • One of my newer church members startled me this Sabbath when he remarked how much he loves the Adult Sabbath School Quarterly. Given the amount of grumbling I do about some of our church's programs (such as the Quarterly), it's worth remembering that some people are still blessed by them.
  • And I'll close with a quote from Samuel Johnson, who died on this date in 1784. Having suffered the stroke that would eventually kill him, he wrote to a friend: "I will be conquered [by death]; I will not capitulate."
