Pearl Harbor Day

Instead of watching a movie, I remember Pearl Harbor Day by listening to one my favorite Adventures in Odyssey episodes, "East Winds, Raining." Wendell and I grew up listening to stories featuring Mr. Whitaker (Hal Smith), Eugene and Connie, and the original set of kids. If I happen across it on the radio now I listen with interest, but I don't recognize most of the inhabitants of Odyssey anymore. The Barclay family is long gone, and no one now remembers Jack and Oscar, Curt and Lucy.

In "East Winds, Raining", Connie's Uncle Joe reflects on his experience at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Listen to it here today and in the archives later.

Nerdy as a fan club

Look what I found when I googled my name (scroll 1/6 down). Andrew Osenga asked his blog readers to thank Christianity Today for their review of The Morning (listen to it here), and my note got published (sort of). And it's right above Mr. and Mrs. Osenga's!
