The past month has been incredibly intense.
I had the honor of flying to NY to meet with my father and his board about rebooting his global ministry.
I am mid-semester at the seminary with 4 amazing classes (ecclesiology, essentials of christian theology, culture & system change, and world religions)
While I was back east, I went to the Methodist Archives at Drew University and found the documents that I needed to complete my dissertation!!!
I have been applying to professor jobs in the areas of religion, theology & ministry.
I have been talking with denominations about the possibility of being a pastor with them (come August) and have great hope that something is going to work out.
Lastly, I have also been developing a model for revitalizing existing churches AND connecting with post-evangelical / this-is-not-for-me 20 and 30 somethings. [more on this to come]
As you can see, I could use some prayer.
I want to finish this season of being a professor and writing the dissertation well.
I also have an eye toward pastoring again and what it might mean to model what it looks like to do church in a different way.
Thank you for your care, notes, prayers, and engagement. It means a LOT during this time. -Bo
