Teaching middle school is an enervating experience. It's standardized testing week, so I get a bit of a break. Five more weeks left!
My favorite coffee shop here in Newnan (3 minutes from our apt.) is closing at the end of the month, reportedly to be turned into another coffee shop. I've gotten so used to unwinding at the end of the day with a caramel latte and a book that I don't quite know what I'm going to do in the interim. There's Starbucks, I guess…
A word to the curious: Lipscomb University is
not looking for new students for entrance to its M.Div. program. UPDATE (6 pm, 4/19): After leaving multiple messages, someone returned my call. I'll keep you posted.

Psalm 55.10 struck me the other day: "Day and night the watchmen make their rounds upon her walls, but trouble and misery are in the midst of her." (translation from the BCP Psalter). The favorite hobbies of some continue to wreak havoc in God's Church — I recently heard about a church which Hannah and I used to attend that is in the process of tearing itself apart over the issue of divorce and remarriage. May God have mercy on those — no matter on what side of what argument — who rend the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 3.16-17).
