So it’s been a long time since I’ve written much here. As I said in my last post, I spent several days in Cuba on a mission trip. It’s also been extremely busy for me since I’ve been back: we’re getting ready for T-ball, we’ve started working in the yard some, and I’ve also started preparing for my classes that start back up again in the fall. So, yeah, things have been pretty busy around here.
But I haven’t forgotten about the blog. In fact, there are lots of things I want to write about here. Here are a few of the random posts you can expect in the near future here:
- It’s March, so you know what that means: time for my annual MLB reviews and predictions. Last March, I all but predicted the Giants’ improbable title run. (Actually, I think I said they had enough pitching to contend for the division crown. But still.) Predictions will begin this week.
- It’s also time for another media review. Lately I’ve been listening to some great new music from Iron & Wine and The Civil Wars. Preview forthcoming.
- Another installment of my Sermon on the Mount series.
- I’ve also been doing a lot of reading lately re: the Minor Prophets. I’ll be posting some material on Habakkuk and Amos soon.
Until then, quick recap of our time in Cuba. Much like our trip to South Africa, I left Cuba with a deep appreciation for the faithfulness of God’s people in difficult circumstances. The times of worship we enjoyed with our Cuban brothers and sisters were inspirational. The men of Cuba sing with wholehearted vigor, which is a little different from our worship experiences here in the States. But I’m so grateful for the opportunity to share some time with these dear brothers and sisters. I’m already looking forward to visiting with them again.
