1 down 1 to go

8 days ago I emailed in my Greek exegesis paper on Galatians 6:10-20 (which was an enjoyable, insightful and I think a well written). That marked the end of Greek for seminary, thanks be to God. I then spent 4 full days and nights with my amazing and now bronzed wife in Miami. We slept, beached, read, ate, people watched (lots of topless sunbathers and thonged men and women) and did what "15 year-weds" do. Last night in worship my good friend Byron Pryor gave an amazing message on Mark 4 and through it God really inspired me to be more reckless in the sowing of the Word of God in the fields he has me in. Oh the joy of being able to entrust the word to reliable people who are qualified to teach others. And then to have the privelage to sit under and be transformed by that teaching. My community has given me a great gift. I have a sabbatical from being the primary communicator at our worship gatherings for the months of June and July. For... tomorrow (June 6, 2006) I start Hebrew. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am - 12pm in June and July. Two semesters of work in two months - some call it suicide Hebrew. Pray for perseverance and joy in the next few months. Shalom!

Ah, the joy of biblical languages. Enjoy learning your aleph, beths, gimels and God speed!

Oh I wish I could say something witty in Hebrew--

Mazel tov!
