Thanks to all who prayed…

for me as I had my oral defense of my doctoral project.  I passed, and I know that your prayers enabled me to give a good accounting of the work done.  Unlike a Ph.D. dissertation, a D.Min. project is a record of an actual ministry project undertaken, and generally does not have either the scholarly weight or the readable content to be published, so it is not headed anywhere but a shelf.  However, the work done (developing a simple model for small groups and running two pilot groups last summer) will show up in our church life as we are getting ready to train leaders and start a few more groups, and then a few more, and so on.  You can watch for more details on that as we go along.

I am writing this in Chicago, where the defense took place (at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), and will be with you all, Lord willing, tomorrow morning as we celebrate the Lord’s Table and then consider the significance seen and missed in the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.  See you then!
