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,

I was blessed to sponsor a fellow who will, Lord willing, be there with you this summer. He'll be the only Puerto Rican there, I imagine. Say hey for me if you see him...

Me too, Seth.

Joe, I'm in town now. Let's connect. Email me at and let me know how to contact you.

David, I will look him up. I will probably be the only unreconstructed Confederate there so we will have something in common - our status as outsiders! :-)
