a scandalous beauty, by thomas schmidt. its a collection of essays about christ and christianity. i got the chance to talk with him about it and told him about some of the great essays that he should read. well, turns out he did! and then he based a series of sermons on the book too! it was really cool to hear him reference the book during the sermon, 'as schmidt talks about in his book...' i was thrilled that dirk not only enjoyed the book but was also inspired by it! much of his lent series and easter sunday sermons were based on different essays in that book- so cool!
after the service we went and got ledger, who also had a blast in his sunday school- even making a neat craft for us to put as a centerpiece on the table during easter dinner. he was very proud!
later that day he even got to have an easter egg hunt, finding himself candy and little toys too. he was about as pleased as could be! the next day he woke up wanting it to be easter again. don't worry, son, now that christ has risen every day is easter!
