Tomorrow is the last day of my first seminary class. (They're going to have to do it without me though, because I'll be at the tech rehearsal of Imagine Christmas at First Baptist Euless.) In my class, BE101: Bible Study Methods and Hermeneutics, we've walked through the four steps of inductive Bible study: Observation, Interpretation, Correlation, and Application. We've practiced these processes on several passages, but we mainly focused on Philemon, and specifically verses 4-7. Last week we were tasked with correlating, or drawing out timeless principles from, these four verses. This week we were asked to carry that to the last step by constructing 3 careful, concise, correct, contemporary applications. In addition, we were challenged to select one of our applications and actually apply it this week, reporting on the effects thereof. As I was finishing my assignment this evening, it dawned on me that some of you may enjoy reading about my experiences over the last week in this assignment. If the names Steve & LuAnne Wade, Mark Knight, Mark Bailey, Rebekah Wade, Doug Sager, or John Meador mean anything to you, please read on...

Well...we're here! Have been for almost four months now. Where to even start? It seems like almost everything in our lives has changed significantly since we last posted. We'll break down specific areas of interest later on, but for now, please know that we are committed to providing regular updates from now on. We commit to be consistent in sharing what's going on in our world if you'll commit to following us and keeping us on your prayer list. Your support is critical to this (and every) stage of our lives, and we wouldn't be able to be here doing what we're doing if not for the support you've already shown.

It's been on my someday/maybe list for months to write a status update post here on our blog. I have no excuses; I've been busy like anyone else, but I should have taken the time to do it. This is one of the busiest weeks I've ever had, so I'm not gonna do the full status update now (I'd need my wife for that), but I do need to share a tremendous blessing I received this morning that's a little too long for Twitter or Facebook.
