Sunday’s Sermon

Bart Ehrman is a bible scholar with an interesting conversion experience. He was an active Christian as a high school and early university student, but then began to wonder about the accuracy of the New Testament gospels. He studied NT Greek and tried to answer the question, “Are the Gospels reliable?”

His lifetime of study led to his conversion experience. Watch him debate Craig Evans, another NT scholar.

Samuel Beckett – cbc

Beckett and Giacometti on the set of Waiting for Godot

Back in the 1970s John Marshall and I went to the UK on holiday. We saw some plays, ran into Shakespeare Professor Homer (Murph) Swander after a play in London, and we saw Not I by Samuel Beckett. Over the years I have read and taught Beckett to several University classes – always an enjoyable activity.

Today in my email I received a note from another former student, Colin Whyte, who sent a link to a recent CBC programme on, guess who, Samuel Beckett! Listen to it here. It is good.

Over the years I have posted about Beckett many times (do a search from the home page) if you are interested. One here!

To sum up: Beckett speaks to me.
