A minor

Holy Week
Well, it felt more busy than holy. I went into overtime at work this week, largely due to the fact that I had to go to New Orleans for a meeting. Hollie and the boys went with me, though, so we were able to turn the New Orleans trip into a mini-vacation.

Brief synopsis:
- arrived late Tuesday night; Troy had told me I had to go to Lager's, which ended up being right by our hotel, so I went for a nightcap of a pint of Beck's and a half-pint of Chimay white label, both on draft
- meeting Wednesday
- Aquarium of the Americas, Riverwalk, Gordon Biersch, and the outlet mall in Gonzalez on Thursday

Books purchased at the Bible Factory Outlet in Gonzalez for about $5 apiece:
1.Robert E. Webber, Ancient-Future Faith: Rethinking Evangelicalism for a Postmodern World (Baker, 1999)
2. Jonathan R. Wilson, God So Loved the World: A Christology for Disciples (Baker Academic, 2001).
3. Craig A. Carter, The Politics of the Cross: The Theology and Social Ethics of John Howard Yoder (Brazos, 2001)

For some reason, Easter Vigil didn't seem as impressive last night as it did last year, but maybe that's because Levi was baptized last year, I was worn out last night, etc. Bishop MacPherson was there, though, and he handed Ethan his crosier (shepherd's staff) during the last few verses of the recessional hymn. We were sitting on the back row, so the Bishop happened to be standing right next to Ethan as the service ended. For Ethan, I think that made up for the fact that he received only a blessing at the altar, even though he held up his hands to receive the bread like everyone else.
