The Phoenix this morning, coffee, three people and a fire place. It is January 8th and it is 65 at 7:00 AM. I have a new job at a fancy private school. I am a “Study Hall Rector” and will be baby sitting rich young youth. I am taking three classes next Semester, then I will do my independent study and be done. Classes I will be in:

Old Testament Prophets

Women in Christianity

Some class about Justice, Sex and lots of other ethical issues.

I am excited to be done.

Elections looming in the distance and I find myself attracted to all sorts of candidates. I oddly enough enjoy Huckabee and his economic beliefs. The system we currently have is not working as the poor continue to suffer and the rich continue to gain. However, he is pro-war, pro-death penalty and pretty anti-gay.

The Democrats seem interesting.

Obama is a powerful speaker. I read his book and enjoyed even though I did not agree with a lot.

Clinton rubs me the wrong way.

Ron Paul is good but does not stand a chance.

Kucinich has given up, I would have to I guess.

I was listening to a Mennonite friend of mine at Graduate School. He is a resister. Someone asked him who he would vote for and he quoted scripture as he usually does (Matt. 4:8-11)… this is what he said:

8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory;

9 and he said to Him, “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’ ”

11 Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.

He emphasized verse 9… “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.”
