Curmudgeon in Hungary
Internet access is spotty, as is the telephone connect to the US. My room's air conditioning has yet to learn the "on" position, which made sleeping difficult. Today is mostly an off day before hitting the lecturing hard for a week. I have already had several heartening conversations, one with the leader of the UK InterVarsity ministry, another with a retired physicist.
Today I look forward to more unplanned conversations, prayer for much missing luggage--not my own, thank God--and reading Philip Jenkins's new book, God's Continent: Christianity, Islam, and Europe's Religious Crisis. May God's Kingdom be manifest through this meeting.
Reporting from Hungary, on a public Internet port, and needing more sleep,
