ETS et al. meeting online this year is a bummer in some ways, but good for folks like me who can attend now.
Monsoons arrived on Saturday.
Ouch! The key pad at the gas station was so hot today I had to take breaks typing my PIN.
I published a new issue of Covenant Chronicle today. Updates about the church. Lots to praise God for. This marks the re-emergence of our print church newsletter that ran out of steam a while back. Though not as pretty, I pray that this e-version will be more sustainable.
I want to live someday “in that world where such absurd and inhuman distinctions are unknown”, just like Theodore Sedgwick Wright.
Dr. Steve Baugh is a role model for me in so many ways. #deepwork is one of them, which comes out some in his conversation with @rscottclark about 37 years of teaching the Greek NT.
To better understand what it means to be “not of this world”, read What Did Jesus Mean by “The World”? by @Nick_Batzig.
Took the kids up to Mt. Hopkins today. We stopped just up the road from from the Smithsonian Whipple Observatory. Down the hill, this momma and calf were on the open range.

I’m going to try syndicating my posts to Twitter for a while.

I’m designing a course on Christian maturity and discovered the Workload Estimator 2.0. If you are a teacher, bookmark this. Students might find it helpful too for planning their schedules.
Gospel of John, 17v3:
And this is eternal life, that they know you, the ony true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
Epistle to Diognetus, 12v4:
For neither is there life without knowledge nor sound knowledge without true life.
Last’s night’s sermon was on these words from Genesis 17:1: “walk before me and be blameless.” Listen to hear what that looks like, why we should, and how such a wonderful thing is even possible.
This morning I preached John 16:25-33. In this passage, Jesus tells us three truths that steady our hearts and give us peace.
…divine demand for godliness is therefore found in covenants of works and grace alike. The precise kind of conditionality carried by the imposed obligations differs, however, in these two types of covenants.
