- I have been in the middle of researching and writing a paper for Dr. Donald Hagner's History of New Testament Research class. What I am writing about is the early history of interpretation for Philippians 3.2-11.
- I am taking a directed reading (AKA independent study) with Dr. Seyoon Kim on the subject of Jesus and Paul. I hope to write about some aspect of Jesus' and Paul's view of the Law.
- I have been busy TAing two classes, one on 1 Corinthians with Dr. David Downs and a distance learning class on the Gospels with Dr. Marianne Meye Thompson.
- My wife and I went on a trip to Las Vegas and had a lot of fun even though the city doesn't fit us and we don't fit it.
- I officiated the renewal of my parents' vows at Niagara Falls in Canada, which was a great honor and a boatload of fun!
- While in Canada I smoked a Cuban cigar that was heavenly.
- I have started teaching a new series at church on Christian theology and comparative religion, which has gone pretty well so far. Yesterday we talked about Eastern Orthodoxy, which was eye-opening for all of us (at least I hope it was!).
- And lastly, before going to Vegas we got a new camera that I am loving!
