    70 degrees and Sunny for a DST Tailgate Cookout at the Barn! Barn Burgers, Hot Dogs, Brats, Sausages, Bacon, Chili, Potato Salad, Chips, Cookies, etc.  (Thanks to alumni and churches who help to provide this!)  Tonight we considered our "Righteousness Problem" and that God has given us his own Breastplate to cover our vulnerable vital organs, which if struck in battle, lead to a quick and bloody death.  Some new faces tonight, probably hearing things they have never heard before.  Thank God for that!

    February, in the Barn field, due to COVID, but with 4 fires, 3 Patio heaters, blankets, hot drinks and S'mores to make it bearable.  It was not bad!  Time well spent and students "showed up" really surprised me and really showed up in good number (35-40), for this current state of Erskine.  Better than I thought, as usual!

    Lessons from "Flat Cakes, Dumb Birds and Slack Bows" about the Christian life from Hosea 7.  This is a replay from 10 years ago due to the COVID-19 cancellation of the semester and inability to meet with students.  Go for a walk and listen as you keep up with Hosea!  The early reference to Mario and family is who you think it is.  Yep, he came out from ARA Mark work on campus and brought a portable clay oven to bake us some flat cake (pita) bread to go with our dinner.  It helped to illustrate one of Hosea's points about Israel in Chapter 7!
