Here in Atlanta for a Lecture on Erasmus and Some Research on Zwingli

I stopped and picked up the mail on my way out of town.  Thanks, Eerdmans.  Then I got here and checked in.  Here’s my room with a view.

More anon.

Haller and Erasmus

For no other reason than that I think you will love the museum which has these pieces- and so much more.

There’s also an associated lecture today at 5, so that’s where I’ll be.  I’m also visiting the archive today to photograph a manuscript (a book by Zwingli, to be precise) I’m translating for Pitts.  So it’s going to be a fun day!

The Sermon That Inspired a Son to Stab His Father…

The Bowling Green Police Department has launched an investigation after a man was stabbed by his son during a church service. It happened Sunday at 10:47 a.m. at the Hillvue Heights Church on 3219 Nashville Road.   The church released the following statement about the incident:

“This morning at the conclusion of our 9:30 a.m.service there was a domestic altercation between a son and his father. It’s an isolated incident and without reservation, it was taken under control by our staff, security and law enforcement. We ask for your prayers for this family.”

The tv news noted this morning that the son said he was motivated to stab his father during the sermon.  Makes you wonder what the topic was, doesn’t it…

NB- The church’s statement makes no sense.  What does ‘… and without reservation…’ even mean?
