I read a lot of stuff I don't understand fully, in technology, finance, and other areas. I sometimes get the gist, sometimes not. But it gives me an idea about tendencies, bleed-over from one area to another, broadens my thinking, even if it is sometimes foggy or vague.

In our reading group, we’re doing a series I call “Impressive chapters of the Bible.” The choice of chapters is somewhat arbitrary, of course. Or maybe "personal" is the better term. Since we’re traveling next week, I have two more weeks to wind down the series. So tonight, it’s 1 John 4.

Just finished reading:

T.B. Williams, «Reciprocity and Suffering in 1 Peter 2,19-20: Reading "caris" in Its Ancient Social Context.», Vol. 97 (2016) 421-439.


Good to read something challenging now and again.

In some softwares and WP themes, there are reading time estimates, based, one supposes, on some average figure of words per minute.

In today's Believing Prayer, I set a one-minute reading time, more to encourage people to click and read and pray. (Link: http://believingprayer.com/god-working/)

Years ago, a book was published called One-Minute Manager. Though one's spiritual life cannot be contained in one-minute prayers, neither are they inappropriate.

Prayer doesn't have to be long. It does have to be sustained.

All prayers must be less than 140 characters and may not include attachments..
So we must learn to be concise. Get to the point. ;-)
Reading Jas Michener's Chesapeake.

(Is there no general reading or book group?)

Used to be @Bookclub.
I thought I'd seen one somewhere. Giving me a page-not-found message.
