May I let my voice be a clarion call. I will use these words for justice. I will use these words for truth. And humour.

book list 3, with interesting books from the school library

if you've been reading, you know i work at the library at my seminary. while working there, i write down in my PDA the titles of books that attract my attention. all of the books on this list are books that i would like to read, or at least peruse and ponder. i know that i would never be able to read all of the books on my list, so if i can spend 30 minutes to an hour on most books, just to discover the tasty nuggets within that inspire, i'd consider that better than par.

some of these books, i'd like to read as a matter of cultural relevancy, some for personal inspiration/development, some to better the depth and breadth of my theology, and some for other reasons, or just because it looked interesting. here's the list:

lyrics: from "the ridge" by Information Society,
Now she's walking slowly onward
Through the garden you can't know
Her dance so beautiful so twisted
A spinning madness in the snow

She's got a black hole in there with her
She's got the sun all in there too
They're her partners in her eternal dance
She's not aware of time moving past her
She's not aware of getting any further

She walks the ridge
So glassy sharp
You can't find her now
You can't speak to her now

colors: green and gray, with rainbows.

mood: psychically crushed, but surviving

chant/prayer/mantra: bring it on, but not just yet please.

pax hominibus,
