This week, Fourth Baptist Church has Dr. John Hartog III in for meetings on Eschatology. We are having him and the Whites over for lunch Monday. He has a strong interest in J.R.R. Tolkien. I’ve been told that his wife even saved up to purchase a "one ring" for him. Jen White loves the Silmarillion and her 7 (?) -year-old daughter, Sophia is already reading the LOTR . Joel and I have been spending the last few days rewatching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy from the comfort of the hide-a-bed. It should be interesting to see how the conversation of children, women, and scholars will progress over soup and sandwiches.
