Recent activities

Monday (yesterday) began with Gail coming over for piano duet practice. We are working on Faure's "Gavotte" and Glinka's "Impromptu en Galop," among other pieces. As soon as Gail left, I got ready to go to Mark Twain Elementary School where I volunteer as a tutor for a third grader who is about a year and a half behind where he should be in his reading skills. And in the evening, we went to the Methodist Church for the second session of "Making Sense of the Bible." The Bible study is led by the church pastor. We viewed a 15-minute video of Adam Hamilton discussing the lesson for the day. There were about 30 people in the study.

Today, we got up early (for us) and went to an elementary school where my grandson attends fourth grade. We were given a donut and a cup of orange drink and listened to some of the students read.

Once we got back, I went walking. I did my usual 3-mile stint.

Making Sense of the Bible

Below is a link to a short video in which author Adam Hamilton talks about his recent book Making Sense of the Bible. Hamilton is pastor of the largest Methodist church in the U.S. It is located outside of Kansas City. You will have to scroll down to find the video. I will be taking a Bible study course at the Methodist Church which uses Hamilton's book as its text.

In the video I was surprised to hear Hamilton admit that the Bible has errors. That is something you don't often hear from a Christian.
