"peace on the earth, goodwill to..."

This morning's readings were Genesis 25:19-28 and Colossians 1:15-20.

I commented that it was strange, after Sunday's readings of women whose miraculous pregnancies bear redemption, to shift to this tale of strife.  Though it also bookends nicely with the Epistle -- about how all things are unified in Christ.

I was totally going to go to breakfast with prayer folks -- wore my work clothes rather than my gym clothes to prayer service and everything -- but I found that what I really wanted to do was to go to the gym -- probably in part because my morning routine had been thrown off by having to take time out to prompt the boiler (my warm shower turned cold as I was washing my hair).

This afternoon, Scott showed up as promised (he's leaving tomorrow, returning Jan. 18).  He handed me The Wisdom of Maimonides.  I asked, "Is this your 'congratulations on making it through finals' gift?"  He looked confused for a beat and then said, "No, it's your Christmas gift."  ♥
