For the past couple days we have been having problems with our hot water. The heater broke, we have replaced parts but have not hit the jackpot until this morning. Turns out there was a recall on the lower thermometer that led to problems in the upper. Both need to be replaced. A new afternoon project.
Anyway,the experience has made me think of the blessings of modernity. As I sit here working on my sermon, writing this post, and feeling kind of grimy around the edges and a little greasy around the hair, I am also feeling rather thankful for the technological blessings even if I dissent from his spiritual implications. Call me a hypocrite but a man really gets used to having hot water whenever he wants it.
