News and Stuff

I finished my last term-time exam (Hebrew) on Thursday. Now I only have the final exams left. The last few days have enjoyable, if not very productive. Earlier in the week I had a phone call from my brother Mark, who suggested that I go with him for a month’s holiday in China this summer. I have booked my ticket and can’t wait. I have done relatively little reading over the past week, although I have watched some good films. Crash is the most profoundly thought-provoking film that I have seen in a long time, despite a lot of bad language. I recommend it very highly. Christians could gain much by reflecting on the deep themes raised by such ‘non-Christian’ movies. I also watched Howl’s Moving Castle last night, a fantastic film in every sense of the word. Having loved Spirited Away I thought that I would try Howl’s Moving Castle, which I now feel is probably the better of the two.

  1. Oh my goodness Ally, you’re turning into an anime fan.

    Stop it, while you still can.

    What on earth is wrong with anime, brother?

    It could be worse… He could be into those shocking Japanese cartoons… No… Wait… That’s what anime is isn’t it…

    Hey, China is right next door to Japan — are you going to visit your fans here in Tokyo? We’re always ready to slaughter the fatted tuna for a brother in Christ.

  5. Al says:

    Thanks for the invitation! I would love to visit Japan sometime. However, it will have to wait for another time. 🙂
