the week between

well, i am back from india. it was an absolutely amazing trip. that said, it is so nice to be back in the united states where logic at least exists, even if many choose not to use it. i also suspect that i am allergic to the entire country of india. i had a couple pretty rough moments there.

being part of designing and building a piece of architecture in just a few weeks was incredible. it is a pretty solid little building. i will send along some pictures soon. well, it basically looks just like the hanuman temple in delhi in the picture above, so just imagine a huge red monkey-man surrounded by the himalayas instead of a city. same thing.

anyway, a week to relax (meaning, a week to do school work and some work-work) before the trip to switzerland.

Biblical Church?

"It is one of the great ironies of contemporary American church life that the congregations that say they are most based in scripture often hear the smallest portion of scripture read in worship. Christians believe that God speaks through Scripture, whether or not a preacher is there to comment on it, so don't be stingy with the Bible in worship!"
