It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything, so here’s an short update of what I’ve been doing.
Many of you know that I regularly teach a class for Hope Ministries in South Bend. It is a two-week class (M-F, 1.5 hours daily) I wrote that begins the core programming for the residents who are there for more than just emergency food and shelter. With the exception of orientation to the program, I get to be the first Bible teacher the residents experience at Hope. It’s a privilege, and I have a great time doing it.
So I have been teaching that again for the past two weeks. I had 12 people in class, and the discussions were really good. One student in particular attached to me strongly, spending over an hour after class for advice and pastoral counseling about half of the days I was there.
I have also been working on a paper for a class I am taken toward my graduate degree. It is a study of the leadership gifts Paul discusses in Ephesians 4:11-13. Because it is for an advanced Greek class, the paper is pretty technical in some areas, but the major part is a commentary on those three verses.
If you are interested in reading my paper, let me know, and I can email you a copy. Be aware that it does include Greek throughout, but much of the commentary can be understood without having to read Greek. (You can ask Saralynn; she proofread it for me.)
So, you can say I’ve been busy. Anyway, I hope to get back to regular posting soon. I have a couple of topics that I plan to post in series. Keep an eye on your inbox!
