this morning. Had a large group for class and the men were in a very talkative mood. I think they are getting to know each other a little better and aren’t as uneasy voicing their opinions. Had a couple of dissenting views today, always nice.
We discussed taking risks for your beliefs. Never an easy thing, even here in America where we do not have the threat of physical violence. The 4th chapter of Esther is very powerful stuff.
Our men’s quartet sang a song called Gloryland today. That was a lot of fun singing a good ol’ Southern gospel number. We nailed it pretty hard too. Sweet.
I’ll skip comment on the sermon, it was more like a shareholders meeting discussing finance. Yuk. Hmm. Guess that’s not really skipping it. Oh well.
Lunch was pretty funny. SU and I went with Pop for Mexican food. He was telling us about one of the crazy ladies at church telling him that she loved him and was going to marry him. SU tells him it must be nice to be 80 and still hot. Next thing you know he’ll have some chick in diapers chasing him. Well, at his age it might not be an unusual thing.
Watched Bullit again last night. It was my bad mood and tiredness that made me question it the other day. Once again, the camera angles, music and lighting really added to it. Directors today should think more about the basics instead of special effects. It was interesting when his girlfriend sees a dead body and goes into shock. She calms down (or so he thought) and then says out of the blue, “I don’t even know you anymore” because his reaction isn’t the same as hers. Just like a woman. Late.
