Welcome to my weekly round-up of what I’ve been posting on Perfect Chaos. In this post I’ll also be sharing a few personal reflections on my life at this time, and a Question of the Week to enable me to get inside your heads (or something like that!). Let’s begin!
The Week in Review
For my Monday Music post this week I shared a song by Elvis. It’s not one of his biggest hits, but it’s a lovely performance of a moving song with great lyrics. If you missed it, you can read the post and have a listen here.
I returned on Thursday with my weekly Thursday Theology post. This week I shared a poem I’ve written which I believe captures the sentiment at the heart of my understanding of the free will problem. To read the post and poem, click here.
Lastly, I rounded off the week with my Friday Philosophy post, which this week looked at the thought of Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a Roman philosopher from antiquity. You can read about his approach to living a life of virtue by clicking here.
A Few Personal Reflections
- My ‘get fit and healthy’ project is continuing to go well. I’ve lost some more weight and attended two sessions with physiotherapists this week. I’ve got a set of exercises to do aimed at strengthening weak muscles and improving my posture. It’s really good fun, I just hope I can keep up the momentum!
- My troublesome neighbour seems to be very mentally unwell at the moment, and is continually shouting (mostly at his cat) and playing ridiculously loud music (only during the day, thankfully!). I’d appreciate your prayers, that God protects me, that I can remain patient and loving, and that my neighbour will stop with all the wickedness that characterises his behaviour.
- I recorded an acoustic song for my music project, for which the release date is 10th June (a week today). I wasn’t very happy with it, but taking a ‘done is better than perfect’ attitude I was planning to make do and release it anyway. However, on Friday evening I was playing about with some musical ideas and by the grace of God another song started to emerge. I finished recording the song yesterday, and am really happy with it!
