Your Plans This Weekend

Here are my plans for this weekend:

Hmm. Come to think of it, I have no plans for this weekend, other than going to church on Sunday morning. I see before me the makings of a great weekend! I suppose this means I will spend plenty of time reading, though admittedly I haven’t felt much like reading the past few days. I’ve been struggling my way through a book about the authority of Scripture, but have generally preferred doing other things.

Apart from what I have to do this weekend (which, as we have seen, is nothing) here are some things I hope to do this weekend:

  • Write at least the first of a two-part article about The Emergent Church for a magazine. I told the editor I would try to have the first submitted by March 25, so the clock is ticking.
  • Watch “The Incredibles.” That shouldn’t be hard to difficult to force myself into doing.
  • Play with the kids.

Now you know my plans. What are you up to this weekend?
