Good Times

It is really tough to blog during school. Every time I have a break from school work the last place I want to go and sit is at the computer.

I'm going to a conference on Thursday in Long Beach, CA. Should be good times. My contact in Cali says that the weather is a freezing 75 at the moment. Poor guy. The conference is called Resolved. Check out the trailer here. It is a conference inspired by the resolutions of Jonathan Edwards. Check them out. My favourite one is,

Resolved, to act, in all respects, both speaking and doing, as if nobody had been so vile as I, and as if I had committed the same sins, or had the same infirmities or failings as others; and that I will let the knowledge of their failings promote nothing but shame in myself, and prove only an occasion of my confessing my own sins and misery to God.


or,

Resolved, constantly, with the utmost niceness and diligence, and the strictest scrutiny, to be looking into the state of my soul, that I may know whether I have truly an interest in Christ or not; that when I come to die, I may not have any negligence respecting this to repent of.


or possibly,

Resolved, to think much on all occasions of my own dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death.


Between the title and the text, Jonathan writes,

BEING SENSIBLE THAT I AM UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING WITHOUT GOD' S HELP, I DO HUMBLY ENTREAT HIM BY HIS GRACE TO ENABLE ME TO KEEP THESE RESOLUTIONS, SO FAR AS THEY ARE AGREEABLE TO HIS WILL, FOR CHRIST' S SAKE.

Good clarification, eh?

Good times tend to be had by all when C.J., johnny pipes, j-mac and friends are in attendence.

Resolved, to be exceedingly jealous of your trip to California.

Try and get a video of JMac's magic pulpit! I tried last year but it was too quick.
