So I'm going to visit Philadelphia in early August. They have Wawa's and Beau Monde. Philly apparently offers real Morrocan food, instead of the lesser Maruchan? alternative. Independence Hall, the Firehouse, and the Last Drop Coffeehouse all reside there, too. Absolutely splendid, really. But it's even better than that!

I've recently been reading, though not much, as I've been staying busy: Worldly Saints : The Puritans as They Really Were by Leland Ryken. I read parts of this book in Seminary and really enjoyed it. I picked it up as I was leaving seminary, and now have a chance to dive back in and enjoy it. I also recently picked up the book A Community of Character, by Stanley Hauerwas. A friend of mine said that he found it really interesting, and well written. It basically deals with Christian Ethics, but I haven't gotten far into it yet. An interesting Hauerwas Online website. I've also been reading the Grande Armee book I started earlier. It's a nice mindless historical distraction.
