366 unusual things: days 94-98

3rd Apr – Went  to the home of a Muslim woman to teach her English, but she wanted me to explain Christianity and to tell her what I know about Islam.

4th Apr – Just read that the woman who found Moses in the bulrushes, and then raised him as her own, was one of Pharaoh’s 59 daughters.

5th Apr – Another Muslim student is going to Saudi Arabia, where she’ll write a draft essay and send it to me in Australia to check before she sends it to her teacher.  The essay is on The Metamorphosis by Kafka.

6th Apr – I’m halfway through The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers, about a girl preparing for a family wedding; she buys special clothes and wears them for some time in the story. Today I’m preparing my special clothes for my son’s marriage next week when I will be a member of the wedding.

7th Apr – A blog article about a French Catholic church, written by a blogger I follow, was used as a sermon by a Presbyterian minister.  Imagine!  Your blog words spoken in public by someone you’ve never met!  See Dennis Aubrey’s article about the Basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine,Vézelay, France:  Elle chante, Père.

Then hear Gordon Stewart read the blog post in his sermon:  The Stones are Singing.
