Personal/Theological Notebook--Reading is Fundamental
ARRRRRGGGG!!!! I just had Mike Harris return an earlier phone call which ended up in him reminding me that I missed the kick-off meeting of "Reading is Fundamental," the name we've given the new reading group that Professor Barnes has offered to lead for us. We're going to be reading the fundamental philosophical texts that are the basis of modern theology, starting today with Descartes' Third Meditation on God. I have been looking forward to this for over a month. But I got so caught up in the vigil for John Paul that I completely forgot about it, and since I neglected to put it into my computer calender, my computer didn't tell me to go, which is help that I often require. I am now totally completely pissed at myself. And I know it's not that big a deal, in a way, compared to our "big news," but I've still been looking so forward to this, and I think that it's one of the most important things happening here theologically. ARRRRGGGGG.
Edit: Oh, and I altered a few minor details in yesterday's pictorial biography of John Paul II for accuracy's sake.
