In the Wake of Katrina

The Society of Biblical Literature has recently posted a list of academic institutions affected by Hurricane Katrina, and among them are several Christian institutions which train for vocational ministry. Below the listing of schools affected are practical ways to aid relief efforts, as well as a means of contacting colleagues who may have been impacted by the tragedy.

Worldvision is focused on shipping much needed emergency supplies through local churches in the affected areas. Please check the link for bulletin insert and donation information.

Also check out an insightful post by Dr. Ben Witherington which brings balance to the evangelical impulse to declare Katrina an act of God's judgement.

If you're interested in audio resources, you may want to check out this lecture on Job and the problem of evil by Eleonore Stump, which is available through the Veritas Forum. Also available are lectures by Peter Kreeft, Ravi Zacharias and William Lane Craig . Hopefully prayer, hands and feet will unite in the Church to bring hope and the power of the new creation to costal sufferers.

Ooh, I get first comment.

I just wanted to let you know that the Scoops are on their way. Repeat: The Scoops are on their way.

Speaking of Peter Kreeft, one of the books we had to read last year was written by him, and had a back from the dead fictional Socrates who zing whap banged pro-abortion people with his magical powers in logic. I could almost recommend it but it was required to read, and since I'm an Anarchist, I can't recommend anything that was mandated by a systematic learning system. So ends the longest paragraph of the year, so far.

Hopefully You Disregard Everything I say,

My pleasure, Dan! Hopefully (time permitting) more on the way (George Lindbeck's "The Nature of Doctrine" and "Engaging God's World" by Cornelius Plantinga)!

Andrew the Anarchist,

Kreeft's Socratic dialogues are a fun read! He did one of these about the issue of purgatory using C.S. Lewis, Aldous Huxley and John F. Kennedy. Pretty enaging! I'm waiting for his upcoming fictional dialogue with Herve Villechaize, Jerry Mathers and Louis Farrakhan.
