Well, it is that time of the year when my vacation rolls around, and when the consistory at Christ Reformed grants me some time off from my church duties to write, read and study.
All of that is to say that Rev. Marcelo Souza (Guy de Brasil) will take over my duties at Christ Reformed while I take some time off. It is nice to be "preached to" for a change and to sit in the pew with my family.
We have a couple of short trips planned, and I'll be attacking the growing pile of books in my study I haven't had time to read. I'm also working on a series of articles for Tabletalk, as well as preparing for my Spring 2009 stint in the classroom @ Westminster Seminary California (Dr. David VanDrunen is on sabbatical, and I'm teaching one of his courses). I've also got a chapter due for a book on church planting, and then I have several book proposals to finish. I'll be plenty busy, but I'll get a break from the pressure that goes with pastoral work.
All of that is to say, blog posts here at the Riddleblog will slow down and be a bit sporadic for much of the summer--I'll still post when I feel like it, or if Zrim needs clobberin'.
Sorry, I won't be taking any email questions until I resume my pastoral duties again, Lord willing at the end of August.
