Porridge is food in its most basic form. It’s oats and it’s milk, yet combined creates an explosion of taste and nutritional goodness. This week has seen an experiment on my part as I pursue the best porridge recipe, for myself and my housemates. So far we have had a thick, lumpy composition compared with todays not quite as thick but still pretty thick concoction. Add a little brown sugar into the mix while cooking and some maple syrup and we are on the road to success. Joy!
Why am I excited about porridge? It’s because it is so helpful to eat something that is so filling, and provides energy for a busy week. Bible studies, talks, youth, DIY, CU etc…
This week I am attempting to write an apologetics talk on suffering – If God is all powerful and good why is their suffering?
A great topic, but how do you defend and proclaim the gospel, while dealing with the subject in a sensitive way and show the hope that Christ gives us? That is my exciting task, and porridge will keep me going.
