good things about life

An eclectic listing of good things about life, from my admittedly particular perspective, and not necessarily in order of importance: Eliptical machines for exercise. Brazos Press. The New York Times online. Two profoundly Wesleyan theologians: N.T. Wright and Rowan Williams (thanks, Jonathan). Wilco. The Daily Office. National Public Radio. The Banana Pudding at Phil's Deli in Charlotte. A happy marriage. SEC Football. Term limits for U.S. Presidents. Grilled corn on the cob. The local church at worship. Really depressing movies: Pulp Fiction, Fargo, Godfather Part II. 50 degree summer mornings in the Western North Carolina mountains. The poetry of Billy Collins and Mary Oliver. Morning Joe. Merlefest. ACC Basketball. The BBC. The coolness of approaching fall days. Braves baseball, even when it is going badly. The Office. The south. The sermons of William Sloan Coffin, John Claypool, Will Willimon and Fleming Rutledge. Reasonably good health. Generous Orthodoxy. The sportswriting of David Halberstam and the travel writing of Peter Hessler. Kind of Blue, The White Album, Live at the Fillmore East, What's Going On, Rock of Ages. Christian friends in Haiti and Canada. The short stories of Flannery O'Connor and Alice Munro. The pace of summer.

The Daily Office and "The Office"...what a difference one word makes!

Thanks for a great list.
