Faithful readers and friends: currently I am in Baltimore at a continuing education conference put on by the seminary. And this is from my phone, and my fingers are already beginning to hurt.
But here it is, the Bible is funny. It is okay to laugh when Psalm 39 says "my heart is hot within me." All I could think of was some southern belle fanning herself after a strapping young "beau" asked to be her partner on the square dance.
