"Senior Recital Approaching"
February 27, 2007

Just a reminder that my Senior Recital is this Monday, March 5th at 7:30 PM. You can see the website at www.mastersrecital.com. My text slide chapel announcment for tomorrow (wednesday) is as follows, "The Senior Voice Recital of Joshua Wheeler will be on Monday, March 5th at 7:30pm in the Music Recital Hall. Come and enjoy a great Monday night of wonderful song and music written by old dead guys in languages you don't understand."

I'll have to post a couple posters up too... but that'll have to wait till tomorrow, can't have those being seen before they're actually released on campus. It's risky enough posting that chapel announcement early...

 

"Theology I Complete"

Well, I completed my Theology I DS this weekend. Here's a picture of the beautiful stack of pages to celebrate. (Note the professional plastic binding.)

 

"Arizona"
February 12, 2007

Chorale got back from Arizona at about 6:00pm today. We had an incredibly time together over thsi weekend. The two seven hour bus rides were an absolute blast. Our concerts went very well and we had a wonderful time of ministry at Apollo Baptist and Palmcroft Baptist in Glendale. We can pray that the music we sang and the cds we left will continue to encourage and convict until we are back again.

This year's chorale is a great group. We are a group of 'different' people. Which basically means that there's no boring norm that people are attempting to follow. I absolutely love unique people and diverse personalities. The bus ride back was great; I must've sat next to at least fifteen different people throughout the duration. That's fun! The bus was new too and had great flat panel TVs so we made use of those by watching Cars on the way to AZ and Hoodwinked and Barney's New Car from Andy Griffeth on the way back. Oh yes, and we ate at a Cracker Barrel on the way there!

 

"Some more Photos"
February 4th, 2007

Just wanted to put up some more photos. These were taken over winter break. I'm looking forward to having some more time to take photos in a few weeks.

I've got a couple more assigments and then my DS Theology course will be finished. Right now for the extra 250 pages reading from our choice of source I'm reading "A Body of Divinity" at my dad's suggestion. It's a wonderful book by Thomas Watson - a puritan, and an author of whom fairly little is know in regards to his background.

His practical approach to thelogy is demonstrated in the manner in which he presents each point. He gives the theological concept and then has sections called "uses" at the end. These are dedicated to demonstrating how we apply this theology in our life. This format neatly coincides with his statements at the beginning as to the purpose "To be settled in the doctrine of faith" of which his subpoints include so we may grow and resists "seducers" or false teachers.

It's late, otherwise I would list some good quotes. Well, here's one in speaking of how it isn't cheerfullness during good times but rather in the bad that are the actions of Christians which stand out, "It brings glory to God, when the world sees a Christian that has within him that can make him cheerful in the worst times; that can enable him, with the nightingale, to sing with a thorn at his breast."

Here's the photos,

 

 

"Pelicans"
February 2nd, 2007

Mandee's senior recital was tonight. She played all of her pieces very well; my personal favorite of the evening was the Rachmoninof two piano which she played with Morgan (my accompanist). They were tight together musically. There was never that awkward feeling that they weren't quite together as there often is during piano duets. The writing of the piece lent itself to that of course as one was normally accompanying the other's solo lines; but they had clearly practiced it to the point that they were comfortable enough to enjoy performing it. It showed.

Before going to bed I thought it might be nice to post some pictures I took over Christmas break. I'm still planning that big photo upload to the gallery - there's a lot in store there! but I've got other priorities right now. That will have to wait till I have some time to relax. Oh yes, and Happy groundhog day! Good ol' Phil didn't see his shadow I hear - you can read his forecast here. www.punxsutawneyphil.com
