Well, we have arrived in beautiful New England to begin seminary next month! And my first comment to my dear bride after we unloaded the truck was "WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?!"

Seriously, it is just now hitting me concerning the magnitude of this leap of faith, but what joy to know we do not leap into the dark, but into the Light Himself.

Any test of faith is bound to involve fear and second thoughts, but our decision to press on anyway is usually matched and surpassed by the overwhelming grace of God to fill our fear with hope.

There will be much more to write soon, and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Much love,

Dear Gentle Readers,

I know I haven't updated much since my grandmother's funeral, but life has been hectic preparing for the move to seminary in Boston.

It will even get more infrequent for the next few weeks, but I will try to drop in some notes from the road.

We are going to visit my family in Atlanta next week and Connie's family in Greenville the following week, then its off to Holy Cross were I hope to have a regular blog on life at seminary.

I am also hoping to produce at least a weekly podcast that will air on OCN's The Ark and the Rudder internet radio stations. Keep a look out for these developments.

Many thanks for the kind words of encouragement of late. Life is full but let us strive to make sure it is full of those things that will produce "fruit that remains."

Your intrepid almost seminarian,
