Out of the Loop

I've been out of the loop in the past few weeks with a number of things.
- I taught at Palmer Theological Seminary to 8 Doctor of Ministry students 1/15-1/20. A great experience! My course is called Personal Transformation. I've taught it at Palmer since 1996.
- Some great, talented people from our church have been redoing our bathroom. We're a one-bathroom family! Our house was built in 1863. It's adjacent to the land where George Custer lived. I think our bathtub was so old that Custer probably bathed in it. So, we got a new bathtub, getting newly tiled walls, new vanities, new floor, etc. It may be all done a week from today.
- FYI - I'm still preaching on Sunday mornings on "The Real Jesus." I am greatly enjoying this, and learning much myself. I now feel as if I am reading the 4 Gospels for the very first time.
- I began reading Levine's A Misunderstood Jew - excellent!
- I just got in the mail today Victor Reppert's C.S. Lewis's Dangerous Idea: In Defense of the Argument from Reason. I've heard good things about this book and am anxious to read it.
