(7:54 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: Down with the SicknessI confess that after sleeping through most of yesterday, I woke up this morning and still felt kind of sick. I confess that I'm such an idiot about medical matters that I can't even diagnose a cold with any confidence, partly because I assume that almost any health issue is "allergies." I confess that yesterday I started to wonder if I get sick more than most people and whether I might be considered "sickly" -- that's right: I instinctively moved beyond my actual sickness to ponder the possibility of meta-sickness.
I confess that Claire didn't bring me any soup, so I ultimately had to go to Walgreen's to pick up a can and then heat it up myself. I also got some of those pseudo-ephedrine pills, which I've come to believe will ultimately solve any health problem I have, but which require a tedious process of documentation whenever I purchase them. The nice thing is that when this sickness passes, I'll be able to use the leftover pills to make meth.
I confess that once I finish the Minjung Theology anthology (and therewith the Asian theology section of the list), I will have only the following books left for 20th Century Theology:
- Ritschl, The Christian Doctrine of Justification and Reconciliation
- Pannenberg, Anthropology in Theological Perspective
- Metz, Faith in History and Society
- Soelle, Christ the Representative
- Migliore, Faith Seeking Understanding
- Adler, Engendering Judaism
- Plaskow, Standing Again at Sinai
I confess that I probably need to go back to bed.
I confess that Brad sent me the most disturbing YouTube video I've ever seen:
