Where's Bobby Schuller?

I usually listen to Bobby Schuller every Sunday morning to "prime" myself for Sunday worship (which is reliably better preaching than Bobby's, but reliably worse music) I have my differences with Bobby, but he was at least more biblical and orthodox that daddy Schuller.

This morning I discovered from Wes McCallum what's up. Son Bobby had a new vision from Dad Schuller. So Dad swooped back in after Bobbys two year rein and fired Bobby.

The whole famly fuss is interesting and representative of some of the emergent-Boomer church-for-the-curch vs. church-for-the-world debates. Bu it has changes my Sunday morning habit. Now my TV offers a few Televanglists I can;t stomach... so this morning I'm listening to the radio. Radio? I will have to explain this to my students--they don't know what a "radio" is.

Fall Break Bike Trip

Sharon and I are testing out biking together. Over fall break we went to KaFor fall break we went to Kalamazoo Michigan and rode the the 34.5 miles from Kalamazoo to the lake in South Haven.

It was a great trail-- almost all in the shade, for us falling leaves. the surface is crushed limestone and slag which does gum up sprockets. had the wonderful “hungry Man’s breakfast” at the Trailside Cafe in Gobles about milepost 12 or so. There were plenty of old fashioned hand pumps on trail for water and lots of Job-Johnnie restrooms and benches for sitting. Sharon and I parked at the Kalamazoo end and rode to South Haven where we spent the night at the Comfort Inn after eating at the famous Clementine’s restaurant The next morning we rode back (mostly uphill) to the car and got home to Marion before dark.

now my Quads are sore but it was a great Fall break!
