Did I mention that I got this book recently?
It's been really informative; I did not get the link
between dogma and how it translates into lived experience;
how right dogma (doctrine/ideas about God) creates right culture/living.
Makes perfect sense, I just did not frame the idea in this way,
thought I have been pondering this topic
(of how we are where we are today/in history) for years.
This book is a bunch of things on many topics, including kids/child-rearing.
I love books like that, wide-ranging.
I've been thinking over and over today
dogma = right living and such thoughts. Ortho-nerdy fun at it's best ;)
I got to do more reading today.
It was SO NICE.
Uninterrupted quiet reading on the futon in our library/chapel with
time to make notes, look over past notes (I write a lot of quotes from books
I am reading esp that I want to write about) and making notes for DV
future essays that I want to write.
I have not had a lot of chance for such a time and I really deeply
appreciated having it today.
I love this plant that a friend gave me this summer...
Books for church bookstore! New Rome Press!
That was a heavy box to carry up 2 flights of stairs!
I was out of breath, I admit!
And under 10 minutes of my opening the box of books,
there was Cleo exploring the newly emptied box!
These 2 new books are WONDERFUL, cool and the St Paisios book very BEAUTIFUL.
My godkids often get books from me and I was so excited to see these 2!!!
I was really glad to be there.
Was tired tonight so I sat some.
But that's cool.
I have been learning to not push myself into sickness
and am trying my best there.
Speaking of that, I need to get on to sleep for the night!
May God bless, protect and heal us all!
