Playing Catch Up

For the past week, I have had to put a freeze on any posting because of the providential circumstances of my grandfather passing away coupled with finals, papers, and holidays. I feel as thought life has stood still while deadlines have passed me by. I only hope that in the upcoming days the short time I have will find redemption in quality study time and writing. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. Today we held his memorial service, and tomorrow morning my family and I will travel 7 hours to where he will be laid to rest. Hopefully that long drive can be utilized for some good meditation, prayer, and reading. Tonight, I had just a few moments to breeze through the blogosphere to catch up on all that I have missed over the past couple of weeks. I can't really say that I have caught up on anything, but I thought I'd mention a couple of things I found in the few moments I have had. Purgatorio has posted a hilarious tidbit called "You Might Be Emerging If . . .". You have to check that out. Also, if you have ever wondered what your surname ranks in popularity, you can find it out here (HT: EO). Brister is ranked 6,522. Can anyone guess what number 1 is??? And don't ask me how I found this guy. He calls himself "Reformed, Catholic, and Pentecostal." He also seems to hate "fundamentalists" (a.k.a. "fundies"). I don't know how anyone could honestly reconcile these together, and it seems like I end up finding more and more weird blogs every week! Finally, on a more serious matter, Wade Burleson, a trustee of the IMB, has written an open letter to the SBC concerning their new policies on baptism and speaking in tongues (HT: Steve McCoy). For the record, there are some that have referred to P&P as "Provocations and Panties." Let me assure you, this blog is rated PG. I don't think I need to expound on this, and I don't want to get myself in trouble for doing so. Time to get back to the business at hand - sleep.

Glad to see that your back to posting Tim. My surname didn't make the top 55,000 most common names so therefore, according to the site, it "doesn't exist." ;) Hope you're doing ok and I'll see you on Monday.

My surname is number 14,835 in the USA!

I am surprised it made it to the top 55,000.
