I feel as though I’ve posted quite a few “I’m-so-busy-with-work-and-school-and-ministry-that-I-haven’t-had-any-time-to-blog-but-thanks-for-checking-and-please-don’t-abandon-me” entries in the last few months. But it’s really true. Hopefully November will be a smoother month; I’m hoping to have a little time to write next week while I’m away in Wisconsin.

I was able to submit chapter five (out of six) of my thesis last Monday, a week-and-a-half earlier than promised. If Dr. Jonker recommends only minor changes, I could be done with this thesis by mid-November–the light at the end of the tunnel.

This Saturday, I travel to PBU’s Wisconsin Wilderness Campus for a week; I’ll be teaching Numbers and Deuteronomy to college freshmen. Last year this same module was my first time teaching an academic course, and I loved it. I think I’m even more eager this year, since I know better what to expect and am better prepared. Pray for us, if you think of it.

I’m putting the finishing touches on a presentation for PBU’s Agora Conference, which is on Saturday, October 29. The title is, “‘Unless You Have Utterly Rejected Us’: Lamentations as an Instrument of Community Renewal.” Please consider attending the conference; these events are always interesting and informative.
