Update: Birthdays, Baptism, Papers, Preaching

I’ve been light in the blogging department lately. July has turned out to be quite a busy month.

We went to Montreal from Canada Day to Independence Day (July 1-4) to visit Josh and Bekah. Pictures are up on Facebook.

When we got back, I immersed myself in ANE city laments, working on chapter 3 of my thesis, which is due on August 11.

I also have prepared two sermons for tomorrow’s services at Preakness Valley URC in Wayne, NJ. This might be one of the last times I go up there for a while, because they finally have a new pastor! He moves from Michigan and will be installed at a service on September 9, d.v. But I hope to still visit these dear brothers and sisters from time to time as there is need. I hope to post the audio of the sermons sometime this week.

Last week we celebrated three family birthdays: Daniel (7/25), Corrie’s Aunt Becki (7/27), and my Grandpa Frank (7/27). Daniel also was baptized on Sunday, and we had a lovely party afterward at my in-laws’ to celebrate.

Hopefully I’ll be able to provide some better content on the blog in the weeks to come. I just got some feedback from Dr. Jonker on my first two chapters, so maybe I’ll post little excerpts for your critique.

In the meantime, have a great summer! (Or winter if you’re in the southern hemisphere.)
