I'm settled into a church family's house here in Valencia, and boy is it great. I like listening to my pastor talk about theology. He is also a wonderful counselor, and has been helping me work with some of my personal problems (yes, I know it's hard to believe, but I do have problems). Here is his blog site, if anybody is interested: The Craw. Also, here is the website of my church, along with its blog: Saint Andrew's Community Church, The Chronicles of Saint Andrews. In the meantime, I have been reading The Shape of Sola Scriptura by Mathison, who also wrote Given For You. Both of these books have had an enourmous impact on me, and I strongly encourage all of you to get out and read The Shape of Sola Scriptura, particularly if you've ever struggled with the authority of the Bible, and how it squares away with church tradition. The thesis is that most evangelicals treat the issue of the Bible and tradition wrongly, particularly those in radically reformed churches, such as Baptist/Mennonite/Amish circles.
The picture above shows a park that is right across the street from where I am living. Valencia is truly a beautiful place!
