Thankfully Busy

Heavens!  It’s been a whirlwind of activity since we moved to our new appointment but more importantly it’s been a continuous confirmation of God’s leading and calling.  I’m so thankful for this opportunity to serve in this church and to be a part of the work of God here.  Meeting people, learning names, and adjusting to a new schedule of preaching every week has kept me on the go.  Thankfully, I’ve taken some time to slow down and do some necessary reading, particularly Dr. Dennis Kinlaw’s Preaching in the Spirit.  I read that book for extra credit in my introductory preaching class and continue to be influenced by it.  He is a great preacher and a great teacher of holiness.  There is even a Dennis Kinlaw Appreciation Group on Facebook!

One more link before I call it an evening.  I found this interview/panel discussion with N.T. Wright on the Asbury website.  It features WrightJ.D. WaltBen Witherington, and Maxie Dunnam.  It’s a fantastic discussion in which you will find, in my opinion, the best and clearest explanation of Wright’s views of justification.  You don’t want to miss it.

    Matthew –

    Glad you are settled in at your new appointment. It sounds as if your life has been full of busyness and blessings over these past few weeks.

    Thanks also for the tip on the interview/panel discussion. I’ll look forward to checking that out.
