The past semester was a whirlwind. It wasn’t until I finished my last exam, turned in my last paper, and graded the papers for the course I taught at Perkins in United Methodist History that I realized how much teaching a three hour course while taking a full Ph.D. course load had taken out of me. Over the past few weeks I have enjoyed time with my family, slept and relaxed.

Due to the end of the semester and catching up with myself afterward, I have taken an unexpected blogging break. I am looking forward to getting back into the regular practice of posting sometime next week.

Meanwhile, I would like to share a link to a story written by a Christian academic about the most difficult part of being a Christian academic. I was certainly convicted by it.
