I apologize for the absence of posts. I didn't have internet access over much of last week. Also I've started teaching a few community college courses.
I've enjoyed the History of Christianity course. We've been exploring Greek and Jewish influences that led to the formation of Jesus' world. The Greek background was never spoken much of when I was in seminary but now it has really affected my reading of the NT.
This Sunday I'm going to start, with a friend, teaching junior high sunday school. I'm pretty new to this and filled with anxiety and anticipation with a dash of clueleness. Any ideas and suggestions folks for this age group is more then appreciated.
A friend, recently gave me a subscription to First Things. While I don't agree with their theology, their focus on the theology grounding the intersections of faith and public life is fascinating. It makes me wonder why liberal Protestants have no such equivalent journal.
