Greek like violin: Day 23 (A word of encouragment)

Last night, after putting the kids down to sleep, I sighed with relief that the toughest part of the day was finished. I love my kids, but 13 hours is a long time to spend with anybody. I grabbed my nearly-finished glass of Shiraz from the kitchen, one of my beloved Parker Jotter ballpoints, and […]

Greek like Violin: Day 22 (An epistle, if you please)

Today was a special day. Or I should say, tonight was epic. I’ve been watching my kids solo for the past few days since my wife is in New York for a funeral. It’s been lots of laundry, dishes, cooking, poopy diapers, pee pee accidents, crying, and also laughing, tackling, tickling, trains, movies (Up and […]

Fleet Foxes on the American Church

I am a huge fan on the band Fleet Foxes. Their lyrics, harmonies and ethos inspire me, and they frequent my playlist when studying, reading or writing. Their music is worth checking out, simply for its uncanny ability to transport you to another place momentarily to reflect, ponder or meditate. You can (should) get their […]

Greek like Violin: Day 21 (2 Corinthians completed!)

Today was split between a productive morning session and a late evening nightcap. With my wife gone to New York for a few days, I have been making use of the time, especially at night once the kids go down. As much as I love being able to read the scriptures and get a jump […]

Baur, Barefoot and Christology

Tonight while savouring sips of Barefoot Merlot (wine maker of the year 2007!) in front of our gas fireplace, I put down one of my required readings for this year (What is Social-Scientific Criticism, by John H. Elliott) and read through a chapter of F. C. Baur’s Paul, the Apostle of Jesus Christ, Volume 2. […]

Greek like Violin: Day what?

So it’s been a while since Greek like Violin showed its pretty face. But here we are again, now that things have kinda settled in a bit here in Durham, England. I won’t go into those details in this post, but keep it basic. Yesterday was a refreshing return to the text after having flitted […]

Moving to Durham…finally!

Today is the big day. In 12 hours our Virgin Atlantic plane will be lifting off from the tarmac at LAX and whisking us away to London. From there it is another hour up to Manchester, and then 2 additional hours driving time to finally arrive in Durham. Although we will have daylight (foggy) in […]
