mmmm papers


Yup, I'm writing papers (again). Who am I kidding? I pretend to hate all this stuff, but when it comes down to it, I really enjoy the academic pursuits. I'm excited to share what I learn. Here's a teaser - I'm writing now on how the internet has changed the way that we think and how preaching needs to respond to that change in order to continue to be relevant.

Update: I'm done! I'm not sure if it's any good, but I'm done. So, if you want to wade through my writing you can check it out here. I promise I won't be mad if you have some constructive criticism for me (I actually like it).

So now you've confessed as I have. :-)

The idea sounds interesting!

By the way, I'd like your thoughts on a presentation I've been working on with Dale Jenkins. The topic is "Technology in Ministry", and we're going to try and present some things to about 50 local ministers to help them find new gadgets/websites/etc. which could aid them in ministry. This has a very practical scope in mind. If you have any ideas, please feel free to drop me a post on my blog, or on Facebook (if you're on it).

Sounds like your paper might have some useful nuggets as well. We're making the presentation in early January.

Good luck! My Oster Paper on 1 Cor. 5 is due tomorrow by midnight. Still researching...

Later,
Mark <><

Sounds interesting! I've about decided I'm too old for this academic stuff...it's getting harder and harder to make myself study! I haven't really been a shopper in a long time but now I find myself wanting to go to all the baby stores and baby departments around...

P.S. Hope Andrea's birthday was great!

Sounds like a great paper. I will look forward to hearing more about it from you.

James,
I've been doing some research on the Internationa chruch of Christ because I have a client who has come out of it and is seeking counseling for herself and her children. Seems like there is a big group in Portland. Are you having any trouble with that or running into any of this group and having to deal with their extremeism?
