Odds & Ends

  • Tourists began coming to the Oregon Coast because it provided a refuge from the heat. But with this week's day-time temperatures in the mid-50s, I've had just about all the refuge I can stand.
  • Yes, we should ordain women . . . but while we're at it, let's see some more women college presidents. And academy principals. And Vice-Presidents for Education at the conference and union levels. These are all areas, after all, where we have lots of women working, but not enough women leading.
  • I'm puzzled by the Sabbath School lesson's insistence that "the righteousness of God" (Romans 3:21) is not the righteous nature of God, but the righteousness God gives the believer. Yes, Luther would agree -- but what about Wright
  • And I'll close with this quote from Dale Dauten: "A meeting moves at the speed of the slowest person in the room."
