ACU Lectures Day 3

What can I say. The lectures are now over. I am sitting at my friend Carisse’s house and blogging about the day. My day started later than yesterday … I didn’t get up until 7 am today. I met my friend Ed Robinson for breakfast in the student center. Ed ran off to class and I reviewed my power point for Dawn: The Spiritual Legacy of Moser. Attendance was smaller today as many folks already left the day before but we still had a good crowd. One notable in my class was Dr. Leroy Garrett one of the great mavericks and historians of the Churches of Christ. I was pleased to see him. We got to visit more later in the day too.

Today I actually spent a great deal of time in the library. I finished reading John P. Lewis’ thesis. I found material on W. T. Kidwell and F. L. Colley both crossed swords with Moser over the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

This evening I just visited with Carisse for a couple hours and talked. I am glad I came to ACU. I was able to “get away” from stuff and sort of decompress and exhale. I needed that exercise.

P.S. You see that green stuff in the picture I took of the Bible building this morning? That stuff is called grass! I took my boots and socks off and went and walked in it … did it again tonight at Carisse’s house … it felt wonderful.

    Did you hear Brian McLaren? If so what did he talk about?

    Sounds like it was a great experience! Glad you were able to go and not only encourage others, but be encouraged yourself. I’m excited to hear about the Moser book.
