For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day – and not only me, but also all who have longed for his appearing.
2 Tim. 4:6 – 8
Last year one day Lesley and I went on a photo-taking binge. This included climbing to the top of the Campus Center and peeking out some tiny windows there, which afforded this view of the First Baptist Church steeple. I cannot say I had ever seen such a perfectly traditional church before; though it turns out I could not handle their perfectly traditional way of holding a service. Getting excited over the purchase of a harpsichord… Also their exceedingly fundamentalist beliefs scared me away.
