Driving at dusk in West Michigan in November is a bit like being dropped into a game of Frogger. The deer are rutting and running this time of year, and last week a buck sprinted across the road right in front of my little car. Unless that happens tonight, my 1990 Honda CRX will turn over 200,000 miles on my way home from class (I bought it used in 1993). I’m not sure how long its body can hold out—the other week I bolted the bumper to the frame to keep it from falling off—but the engine sounds like it will run until Jesus comes. Which reminds me, will there be Hondas on the new earth? Is my little car a sign of the kingdom—the “already” to Chrysler’s “not yet” “not ever”?
Some of you may be interested in hearing my interview with Michael Horton on his “White Horse Inn” radio program. You can hear the podcast here, and while you’re there you should check out his blog and Modern Reformation magazine. Mike’s organization is one of our leading voices for sane and sound teaching, and if you aren’t already learning from them, you’re missing God’s best for your life.
