Hello, everyone! I'm going to take a little blogcation here. I want to let you know the reason. For a little over two weeks in January, I will be visiting some Christian friends in Uganda. During that time I will not only be busy visiting with a lot of people and helping some folks build a goat enclosure (because, obviously, I am an especially fit person and have shown expertise at digging holes and fastening fences together), but I will also be preaching several times and teaching, in compressed form, a seminary level course on the foundations of Lutheran theology, as well as working in as much of a second course on Bible study practices as I can. When I return from Uganda, I will plunge back into campus ministry as well as teaching at the American Lutheran Theological Seminary, starting about a week after the beginning of the term in each institution. One of my seminary courses is a course I have not taught before.
Rather than writing blog posts, which do actually take a good deal of preparation on my part, I need to focus on preparation for the trip to Uganda and the various things I will plunge into upon my return.
Please pray for our trip to Uganda. My hope is that it will be a good time of growth for all involved, and that we will be able to care for needs of the saints in ways that nobody else has been able to do so as yet.
Is blogcation even a word? Yes, I used it several times. It apparently is a word now, even if it was not before.
