Back soon.

Dear friends-

I started writing here at on January 1, 2009. Since then we’ve been through the book of Matthew and have visited with Nehemiah and with Saint John. I’ve lost family members and weight and a deep opposition to running. We’ve gained a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, and new careers.

Many of you have been through similar changes and challenges. And for many of us, 2018 has been a particularly tough year of changes, good and bad and yet-to-be-determined.

us2018I’m grateful for the opportunity to visit with you, exploring ideas and texts and God with you. I’m grateful that you’ve come with me to Lystra Tea, to hospital rooms, to grief and hope.

I’ll be back January 1, 2019. We’ll start on the next decade. But I’m going to take the next few days off. (Some of you are saying, “with all those reruns during Advent, he’s already been taking time off.” Not really. But thanks for noticing!)

Have a good week. I’ll see you soon.
