today emily and i taught our Sunday School, and the lesson today was on the three “wise guys” as I like to call them and how they followed a star to find the baby Jesus. It was a lot of fun, we dressed up, well the three boys in our class dressed up as the wise guys and then for some reason I decided to be a fourth guy, kind of like a tour guide around the classroom – the catch was that I had a pirate like accent (I have no Idea where that came from). Emily told the story and used my flashing bike light to represent the star that we followed. It was fabulous.
and then later on we went to a cool little coffee shop in south pasadena and drank coffee and read. I read some of a book I have been working on for my Fuller Exam called “The Open Secret: An Introduction to the Theology of Mission” (Lesslie Newbigin) – a great book on missiology. Emily is currently reading “The Life You Save May Be Your Own : An American Pilgrimage” (Paul Elie) a book on Flannery O’Conner, Thomas Merton, Doris Day and Percy Walker. It was a beautiful afternoon to read a little, and relax before Emily gets started back at school tomorrow.
