Kar Yong had been pretty quiet but he is back and thanks to him, I am in the midst of downloading Dr. Craig Blomberg's lectures on the New Testament, though I am wondering when I will ever get to hear them.
I am so busy I am almost drowning. With the opening of the year, Calvin is now in Primary 4 requiring more guidance in his homework, I am halfway through a project at work and about to start a new one, there are so many tests and requirements to fulfil at work at the start of a new year, I am trying to read countless number of articles on Logos and Christology (not to mention the books I have not touched) for my assignment, I will need to work on getting prepared for a training session happening 2 weeks from now, and on top of it, I have just accepted the request to lead the youth in my church in bible study starting this Sunday (but then again, I am the one who offered myself in the first place). Take deep breaths ...
In the midst of all these however, I hope to return to a more disciplined prayer life and daily bible reading, which I am doing with Calvin so that I get to read to him too.
Talking about prayer, something that is always a mystery to me, Chee Keat once asked me what I thought about praying aloud in church. He told me that he finds it hard and I had to agree with him. I find it just as hard as well. During prayer this past Sunday, we were requested to pray aloud. I did (though not too loud) but the moment I heard my neighbour uttering away aloud, my concentration was disrupted. I heard what she was praying about and I just can't continue praying myself. I tried not think about what she prayed but thought about it I did. So I stopped trying whatever I was trying and let the others pray instead.
Just how do they do it?
