My official month long sabbatical from the blog is now over. I am back and blogging away. It was good to be gone for a while, but even more enjoyable to get back in the swing of things. I hope my regular readers haven’t given up on me. I just needed a bit of a break as the new semester kicked off.
But to give a quick update on the fam.
Starting back at the end of August, I became the interim pastor of Lancaster Baptist Church in Garrard Co. This is the fourth interim pastorate I have been asked to serve. LBC is awesome. The congregation is very loving and community-oriented. In just 7 weeks, we’ve already had a huge 9-11 service for local police, firefighters, EMS and first responders. Last Sunday we hosted nearly 100 fall athletes and marching band members from Garrard Co. High School and Middle School. I anticipate being at LBC through the year and possibly some into 2012 as they search for a new pastor.
Jennifer started something significant in August as well. She officially became a Ph.D. student at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is completing her Ph.D. in Family Ministry. This has been a great shift in our family as she needs a lot of time throughout the week to study and do homework. It will take her about 4 years total to complete the program, but I am thrilled for her. She continues to be an adjunct at CU.
The boys are doing great and playing lots of soccer. Isaac is dominating his Under 6 league having scored nearly 30 goals in 4 games. He is faster than lightning. Ethan’s Little Feet Soccer just finished this week. He will be ready for U6 next year. The Garrison boys might be a force to reckon with in Campbellsville Youth Soccer for years to come.
Thanks for checking in. I got some posts in the hopper just waiting to come out.
