one more chapter to go

We started in January of 2012. As of today, we have completed chapter 27. Next month, we will embark on the final chapter of Matthew in our small group men’s Bible study. It has been an adventure, a wonderful time of fellowship, and an amazing opportunity to go deeper into the Word of God. Thank… Read More »

adoption update

My wife will have substantially more on this, but we did have movement this month: 3 slots. We’re still in the 60s, but only barely!

lots of changes

This will likely be the last term I teach a Sunday afternoon discipleship class at Porter. But this is a Good Thing™. Beginning the first Sunday in April, I will be trialing as the new primary leader of a SS class Life Group. If all goes well, after the first month, I’ll be in there… Read More »

study, study, study

In addition to leading a Sunday afternoon study at my church this spring, I am also participating in the 40 Day Challenge with a friend‘s church in NJ.

studying Matthew

For the past several months I have been meeting with 1-3 other guys at the Panera in Nicholasville to study the book of Matthew. It has been an amazing time, and I can’t overstate how much I have both learned, and grown through meeting with D, E, & P 🙂 Going methodically through the book… Read More »

visiting the Creation Museum

For several years, I have wanted to visit the Creation Museum in northern Kentucky, built and sponsored by Answers in Genesis – a group I have yet to find issues with (from theological, scientific, or other points of view). On the 4th, my wife and I headed up the ~90 minutes to get to the… Read More »
