Old journals

I typed journals, but I meant blogs, but I was thinking about how they are similar so I left it.

I imported my previous blog -isaiah408.blogspot.com so everything would be here, but I also created pdfs of some other blogs that I then deleted. One was from when I was doing the lay speaker training. One was karate. They both gave information about my interests and goals and activities. Useful stuff.

I think I had wake3d at another domain before this one and failed to import it or something. I’m going to search the wayback machine to see what I can find.

New Yorker Aug. 6 & 13, 2018

Some weeks the cover is just a nice piece of art, sometimes it’s political, sometimes I don’t get what it is. This week is fairly simple in presentation, but made me a little melancholic. It’s about summer, but it definitely goes deeper on the passage of time.

Prayer for Good Use of Leisure

There are many things that drew me to the Episcopal church, but the Book of Common Prayer is definitely one of the major influences. This is one of the prayers included in the morning office for Saturday and I’m always glad to see it:

O God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment and peace; and grant that we may so use our leisure to rebuild our bodies and renew our minds, that our spirits may be opened to the goodness of your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
