Quote of the Day

“[My prophets] said,`Repent now everyone of his evil way and his evil doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD has given to you and your fathers forever and ever. `Do not go after other gods to serve them and worship them, and do not provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands; and I will not harm you.’ “Yet you have not listened to Me,” says the LORD, “that you might provoke Me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. (Jer. 25:5-7)

The Next Two Weeks


A new social media challenge is concerning health experts.

The challenge is encouraging teens to put laundry pods into their mouths. Some teens have bit the pods in videos shared online.

Consuming laundry pods can burn your mouth, lips, breathing tube and more. It can also cause damage to the central nervous system.

The American Association of Poison Control Centers says families should talk to their teens about the risks.

Kids…. so dim.

A Short Walk Around the Block to Wind Down

It’s a busy Saturday night…

I Have Arrived…

It seems, honestly, like we flew from Chicago to Sweden and back over Canada to Alaska to Northern China to Hong Kong.  I don’t remember the flight being that long last time.  I must have watched 7 movies….  So naturally I’m totally worn out but very very glad to be here and very glad for the chance to be with these great students and wonderful faculty.

Tomorrow (Sunday) I’ll spend getting oriented to the local time.  Then Monday the fun kicks off.  And, by the by, pay no mention to the time stamp.  We’re 13 hours ahead of Eastern time, US here.  So what looks like it was posted at 8:50 in the morning was actually posted at 9:50.  Etc.

Here are some pics of my suite at the school.  More anon.

Oh, and as an aside, you Historical Jesus people need to pick up your game.  Repeating the same pre 19th century arguments and ideologically driven interpretations just don’t cut it.  Read some Bultmann.
