Literary Lent

Today being Ash Wednesday, I am surprised to note that I began the Lenten season not with a sacrifice, so much as a gift-- indirectly, from the late Dr. Griffiss. Much of his library was laid out in our school lounge, books free for the perusing and taking (though a contribution to the memorial fund set up in his honor was welcome).

Free books. In a seminary. Can you say, "feeding frenzy?"

I found a small stack of gems that followed me home. Nothing like AKMA and Trevor, of course; but I'm tickled with my selection.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
