If you have kept up with my writing here through RSS or Feedly, I figured I should let you know that you won’t see any more fresh content here. I’ve moved my writing to a new site, with a new focus, a new interest and passion that God has awakened in me since I’ve started […]

At my first Ph.D. seminar at SBTS, Dr. Pennington shared this prayer from Thomas Aquinas. It is a wonderful example of the humble, eager, Spirit-needing students of God’s word we must be. I’m going to print this out—card stock, nice font—and put it next to my computer.
