If you hear less from me over the next ten days, it is because I’ll be mostly vacationing with family and friends first in Albuquerque and San Francisco, and then, sans children, in Napa Valley. I’m still trying to figure out whether I should even take my lap top. As much as I love you all, and as much as seeing your visits from all around the country and the world light up my little live feed fills me with joy, I’m trying to cultivate a discipline of actually vacationing when I’m on vacation.
You will at least hear from me sometime after Sunday when I preach at friend and fellow saint and sinner Saskia de Vries’ church, Old First Presbyterian, in San Francisco. The sermon, “The Resurrection and The Life,” will help round out our series, “Jesus Epithets: All the Names Jesus Gets Called in Scripture.” It has been a fun sermon to write and deliver, and I pray it speaks to you, as it did me, in a meaningful way.
Off to pack! Until we meet again at this intersection between life and God for anyone converted, unconverted, or under conversion, God speed and keep in touch!
