This afternoon, four hours exactly, the VOR made me my birthday dinner: French pot roast, mashed potatoes, green beans and hotrolls. Amazing. In order for this dish to be made I needed to buy a bottle of Cotes du Rhone and bottle of Chardonay.
While driving home from the liquor store I turned on NPR and heard a wonderful story on Reinhold Niebuhr. If you have a chance either listen to it or download it for later.
I used to stay away from Reinhold - he unduly influenced a narrow reading of Rauschenbusch - I always cared more for his brother H. Richard. But after listening to the show, perhaps I need to go back and reread some of Reinhold.
