In just over a week, I’ll be defending my thesis in Boston. It’s kind of a funny feeling. It feels like a long time since I’ve worked on my thesis. I’ll have to review it to remember what I wrote, which is probably an important part of the defense process. I’d appreciate your prayers for this next Friday. Charlene and the kids are scheduled to join me in Boston. It’s March break so we’re going to make a bit of a vacation out of it. One problem: Charlene’s birth certificate has been at the passport office for a couple of months. She still doesn’t have any ID that will allow her to enter the States. We’ve ordered a new birth certificate but it still hasn’t arrived. We’re hoping that something will work out so she’ll be able to come. In a week and a half, once this is all over, I want to jump in with a series of blog posts on repentance. The recent posts on Static have generated some good discussion, and one of the questions that’s come up is what certain words mean. I’m looking forward to tackling this issue the week of the 19th. Should be interesting! Finally, in case you’ve forgotten, don’t forget that Al Roxburgh is in town, at Richview, on March 19. More info here. If you’re local, I hope to meet you there.
