Big Week

There is a lot going on over the next week. First off, it is banned book week. Being a huge fan I am always interested in who and why books are banned. Sometimes they are legitimately questioned while others they are just crap with stupid premises and bad writing that because they have a thing for homoerotic imagery or killing small children in satanic rituals. Seriously, they wouldn't be nearly as famous if it weren't for the fact they write about naughty subjects and some idiot decides to make a big stink over it instead of letting it just die a natural death like it should. Here is a list of past banned books.

Second, this weekend is my churches presbytery which is the governing body of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. What makes this meeting especially important is that many churches are leaving the PC(USA) in order to join our branch of the denomination. This is a huge deal because it is causing our numbers to grow (the closest EPC church to us is in Maryland) while greatly dwindling the PC(USA) denomination. This can lead to a lot of law suits and bitter fighting (let's pray not). When the EPC was first started my church was one of the first to jump on board forcing us to buy our building at the risk of losing it. Pray for a smooth transition.

We used to do a display on banned books in the library that worked at. Banned book week is pretty cool!

1984 is my banned book for this year. I had honestly gotten through high school and ten yrs. of off and on college without reading it. I was really missing out!

I have tried to get through 1984 a few years ago, but don't think I was patient enough to get through it. I just find the whole thing interesting because sometimes the books are banned for silly reasons or I read them not knowing what makes them banned to begin with.
