a quick update

I'm making a valiant attempt at blogging somewhat regularly and so far so good. It will be a busy week for me this week, but hopefully I'll be able to push through to next week which will be even more busy.

I had a pretty full weekend, a couple of bell choir gigs (one at the quarterly UMW meeting, one at Eastgate Foursquare Gospel Church), the usual counterculture, but I did setup and learned the soundboard this week, and an attempt at making my apartment a bit more clean. I also saw the midnight showing of Narnia on Thursday night. So yeah.. full weekend.

Thursday really started it all... I hung around here late because the kids had their school holiday program and the families really wanted me to come and see them. I didn't want to do anything to make me sleepy, so going to the program was a good option for me. I must say, the kids were adorable and they were really happy to have me there. The holiday program was so very cute and you could tell they had worked on it for quite some time.

I met up with my friends to see the movie at 9 and after a rousing game of phase 10, we watched Narnia. It definitely was a great movie and what is so great about it is that since the book is short, they really didn't have to cut anything out. I'm also happy to say that the Wesley Foundation back home got featured in an article on the umc.org website. Yay for the grad bible study! You can read the article here.

The rest of the weekend was fairly normal, though I was questioned about believing in Jesus by a guy at counterculture because apparently being a mainline protestant means that I don't believe in Jesus. I found that incredibly interesting. Though I may be more focused on the radical social justice Jesus than the redemption Jesus, they're both still there (not saying Jesus was two people, but saying that oftentimes people only see one side or the other.) It was rather strange to be questioned on that, but hey, never know what is going to happen from day to day I guess. As I mentioned earlier, the bell choir also played at a church very far from my traditions. It reminded me of my experiences in the churches in Tennessee, though there were no testimonies. There was a definite altar call, but it has been awhile since I've been in such a charismatic setting. I totally respect those who experience worship in that way... but it is so beyond me.

This morning I'm working on tying up some loose ends about next week, making sure everyone is hanging in there, and I'm just about to go pick up some donated lunches from the Owl Cafe. Tracy is out for the week so we'll see what kind of craziness pops up. We've already had plenty of interesting things happen this morning and that was all from 8:30-9:30. Gotta love Mondays!

And to answer the question posed in one of my previous comments...
Chili = Texas chili... meat, beans, chili powder, tomato base.
Chile= of the New Mexico green and red variety. Put on everything. also used with other forms of chile pepper (jalepeno, habenero, etc)
Chilli = who knows.

According to dictionary.com both of the first two are variants the word and it is chili con carne that is what I define as chili. I think I make my distinctions based on what I've seen used in practice... Hormel chili, and green and red chile on everything here. So there's my 2 cents on that.
