I am traveling again this week. Seems like I have been on the road since mid June…, well, I have been. This week: Seminary Summer Intensive focused on Pastoral Counseling. This will be the first we offer through ALTS. Very excited about this: the Rev. Dr. Craig Loving will be the primary presenter; he has his own counseling practice in the greater Denver area.
This week I have come across several excellent reads:
The Art of Praise by Tindell Baldwin
My goal is to be back blogging regularly sometime next week. I finish preparations to teach the seminary course: Prolegomena: Intro to Lutheran Thinking, which begins the week after Labor Day week.

We will look at principles of interpretation, assumptions behind interpretation, end times from a Biblical and historic Church perspective. Then we will look at Revelation in an old, yet fresh way. The series will be offered on Thursday evening (6:30 PM) and Saturday morning (9:30 AM). Given past studies, this may only take 3-5 years.
And a little bluegrass listening: Kathy Kallick, AJ Lee, and Tuttles
