The Fosters are moving to Indy to take a new position with McGraw-Hill. It's been an eighteen month search with many interviews and several offers I have turned down along the way waiting for the "right" position. We had an offer on the house yesterday and a contract today and will be traveling to find some new digs later this week. I have to be in the office there on November 14.
I went to the Narnia Tour as it hit St. Louis Friday night at Borders on Olive.
Barrs focused on three main aspects of the echoes of Eden. First we find Creation echoes which reveal the beauty of how life once was before the fall- and the delight in ordinary life and ordinary persons.
We also see echoes of the Fall in the tragedy of life now in the alienation that accompanies life with the reign of the witch.
We also see echoes of redemption- the promise of what life will be when Christ, the Lion of Judah returns to establish his kingdom, and in the even deeper magic and the disbelieving for joy and the healing and reconciliation that comes with spring- in anticipation of the renewal of all things.

him to leave once and for all. She had been totally unaware that he was
slipping away an hour here and there, and it turns out he had even brought
the girl, hiding in the floorboard of his truck , into their home for
sex. The girl showed up recently and told her of how her husband had pursued
Our friends were shocked and devastated as well. How could this happen under their noses? How could someone they considered a friend live such a double life so successfully? Yet no one suspected. I admit I do not understand how this could happen without the wife suspecting- he must have been very practiced and successful at deceit. It makes me wonder what is going on behind closed doors all around me, for I know sin runs dark and deep in our world.
