Well, it’s back–the school year, that is. Melissa and Leah headed out for their first class day at the new school. Leah was downright giddy about starting Kindergarten and Melissa was excited about getting back in the classroom. I am sure they will have a great day! We are incredibly blessed that Melissa was able to get a teaching position at a school in one of the best districts in the state and that happens to be only about 10 minutes from our house. That there were hundreds submitting applications to this district and others nearby and she was hired is yet another reason we know we’re where we are supposed to be. Ευχαριστω τω θεω μου!
I start my fall semester Wednesday afternoon and will only be going three days a week instead of four (as in the spring). My course load is not too heavy hours wise, but I will have plenty of work to do. Going through my book requirements, I was glad to discover I already owned the majority of them, so that will be good for the checkbook. I’ll only have to purchase a few titles and I have LifeWay gift cards for those, so it will likely be one of the few inexpensive book-buying semesters in the program.
The few required titles are
Old Testament Theology: Basic Issues in the Current Debate by Gerhard Hasel (for my OT biblical theology class)
A New Reader’s Lexicon of the Greek New Testament by Michael Burer and Jefferey Miller (I’ll be doing a little reading from the GNT!)
So, I’m gearing up for another busy semester. Hopefully I’ll find a way to blog with some regularity, but I can’t make any promises!
*Kind of unrelated to this post, but I may consider making the NET my translation of choice for preaching, seeing as how I will be working with it for the foreseeable future. Have any of you gone this route? Thoughts?
Αυτω η δοξα,
