Pastor Weedon has tagged me for a meme...

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)
Find Page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

The nearest book is a collection of writings by St. Augustine. Pg. 123 is in the middle of the Confessions.

Here are the next 3 sentences after the first 5:

"For if there be as many contrary natures as there are conflicting wills, whether he should go to their conventicle, or to the theatre, those men at once cry out, "Behold, here are two natures - one good, drawing this way, another bad, drawing back that way; for whence else is this indecision between conflicting wills?" But I reply that both are bad - that which draws to them, and that which draws back to the theatre. But they believe not that will to be other than good which draws to them."

Very long sentences. ;-)

And just to be contrary, I'm not going to specifically tag anyone, but if you feel like doing this, consider yourself tagged.

I still live.

I'm graduating this semester, and my honors thesis will be on the Te Deum. An actual blog post will be forthcoming as I get further along in my research and analysis. Have dug up some interesting information on Lutheran use of the Te Deum thus far.
