I’m supposed to be finishing up Shaeffer’s The God Who Is There this week – hopefully I’ll get to it, although many other books and to-dos are vying for my attention. 😉 In the last chapter, before the appendices which I have yet to read, he urges Christians to demonstrate true humanity and personality to a watching world:
This has always been important, but it is especially so today because we are surrounded by a world in which personality is increasingly eroded. If we who have become God’s children do not show Him to be personal in our lives, then in practice we are denying His existence. People should see a beauty among Christians in their practice of the centrality of personal relationships – in the whole spectrum of life and in the whole culture.
Also read/listened to recently:

- Me: Common Sense by Thomas Paine, pre-reading for next term.
- Miss A: Soul Music by Terry Pratchett
- Mr. D: Exploring the Night Sky by Terence Dickinson, and giving us impromptu narrations. 🙂 I used to love looking through that book when I was a girl.
- Mr. E: toting the first volume of Shelby Foote’s massive Civil War trilogy around and over a hundred pages in on his own initiative!
- Little L: loving the real Winnie-the-Pooh stories, and noting the differences between the book and the movie. 🙂
