|Bryce the Pirate|
Three days of class under my belt. Fantastic questions were presented and the dialogue has been outstanding. In general, we're looking at changing technology and the ethics that potentially surround this innovative landscape with an eye toward what theological claims are at stake. I'll put more about it on the church blog sometime. For now, I'll leave it by saying this class is inspiring, challenging, and exactly what I needed.
Rachell and the kids have made the most of their days in Aberdeen. They visited the Maritime Museum, complete with children's scavenger hunts. Excellent time looking around pirate things, oil rigs, and fishing vessels. The other days they've spent swimming at the next door pool, walking through city centre, and heading out to King's College to visit me at lunch. They're walking a TON of miles out here and going to sleep very easily at night.

Bryce asked a "why" question yesterday that cracked me up. We were in the locker room at the gym getting ready to go swimming when Bryce saw another man changing. He was probably twenty something and tattooed from head to toe. There were very few square inches on his body without tattoos. Bryce loudly says to me, "How did he do that to his body?" The menacing looking gentleman hears us and thankfully, smiles at Bryce and said, "I did it with lots of help and lots of time." To which Bryce rightly answered, "Why would you do that?" The man laughed and something unintelligible in an extremely thick Scottish accent.
We just finished an incredible dinner of Scottish lamb and mint burgers and are getting ready for bed. We're all happy and healthy here in the UK. Thanks for reading!
