I returned from the Calvin Festival of Faith and Writing around 4 p.m. today. It was a 5 1/2 hour trip. It was a time of refreshing and encouragement. I met beautiful people of nearly every stripe in Christendom. Brilliant, beautiful, and godly. I certainly encourage writers, editors, and avid readers (appreciators of literature) to attend in 2012. It’s every two years. While there, I picked up a book on Flannery O’Connor. And I like her conception of salvation as a continual turning toward God and continual turning away from ego-centricity. Something to chew on and digest!
I am a little tired and caring for a sick husband. So, I will end with this tonight and resume sharing my thoughts with you tomorrow. Blessings to all of you.

Ah. Flannery O’Connor. Oddly enough, I kind of started reading her while in Spain. I read Wise Blood over winter break, but as my friend Laura would say, it’s funny how we were kind of discovering an American author while over here. I really want to read more, but maybe when I get back. Also funny is that her house was called Andalusia, and that’s where we’re studying!
