A la Maison de la Bible

it was a splendid morning, working with my colleague, Gérard, and with some handymen adapting shelves and doing some changes to the stockroom, and with some nice people wanting to discuss things like study Bibles, like why it is legitimate to call Mary "La Mère de Dieu" and why le Semeur and la version Darby chose different words for the elder in the pastoral epistles - either surveillants or évêques. This last person I refused to get into discussion with because he just wanted a nice heated debate. I said, "We can't defend the translators. If you don't like the one, choose the other."

Some needy people come in. One lady had had good news about her health and wanted to thank God so we talked about that. It was a privilege to be there.

In addition the temperatures have dropped. Hurrah! Just 26 or 27 today, and this morning it even rained.

A little.
