I started using SLAD again for my time with God. It’s nice to be focused, and work on specific areas of my life. I think I may start doing book studies now, while still slowly reading through the Bible. I’m not sure where to start though. I did some minor prophets last year. Perhaps an epistle. Or maybe Old Testament history.

I side with Sam. I actually went to see this movie the first time with him and Ben. We all thought it was a good one. Maybe a little slow, but it was interesting. It dealt a lot with the son (Leo DiCaprio) and his relationship with his father/father figure. Tom Hanks ends up taking the role of the father figure later on, I think, once the chase develops. It really does seem that Frank (DiCaprio) isn’t quite totally aware of what he’s doing. Not that he doesn’t think it’s wrong. I think he knows that, but it seems like he just seems to see it as more of a game. When he calls Hanks in the office, it seems to highlight the loneliness of both men. And then at the end – the bit about no one chasing him… It was all about him trying to get his dad to care enough to put some limits down, a similar idea that floats among some child psychologists and the necessity of setting boundaries/limits when they’re young, and even as teenagers. Part of knowing that someone cares is when that someone cares enough to put down boundaries, and set limits to what can or cannot be done, out of concern and love for the person.
Back to studying.
