The holiday weekend went well, and was mostly relaxing (at least for the non-grad student in the Redd household). The weekend was book-ended by viewings of Spiderman 2. Don't be mistaken: we usually don't see movies TWICE in the theater (we don't even see that many movies in the theater these days), but it really was a good film. And both showings were matinees. Did I mention it was good? Okay, enough justification for now.
Speaking of justification (seamless segue, eh?), Alastair at 40 Bicycles has posted Part II and Part III of his series on N.T. Wright. Very good stuff and a great overview of Wright's position on the covenant, righteousness, etc.
I also spent some quality time over the weekend playing at J.K. Rowling's website. Fun times! Who knows how much stuff is hiding, waiting to be found by obsessive Potter fans?
Finally, I must wholeheartedly endorse the annual 4th of July festivities at Centennial Olympic Park. Even though it was jam-packed, we (Allison and myself, along with a decent cohort of folks from church) had a blast. Although we did get to see Don McLean live, the real highlight (of course) was the fireworks show. Very nice. And bright. And loud.
