(5/23/95)

Well, I got a 'stay of execution' on the money deal...thank so many of you for your encouragement and prayers...

Things are going deceptively well, it seems ;>). I am semi-caught up in my work, my time with my kids is increasingly fruitful and sweet, my firstborn is home from college for the summer (and what a conceptual exploration partner she is!), finances are manageable, and my awareness of His patterns of grace in my life is growing.

My job has taken a strange turn. I will begin spending 3 weeks per month in Cincinnati OH (or someplace that is phonetically similar), while still 'living' in California. I am actually starting to get a little excited about it ('he said cautiously...').

And now the bad news...I am woefully behind on this web page and emails. At this writing, I have about 100 emails from you that I have not been able to answer, and have many, many unfinished projects on this page. The Adult Education class is taking so much more research time than I anticipated (but largely because the issues have always been a challenge for me), but I think the material will be of general use to others. I have made SOME progress on the philosophical piece, but it is getting so few brain-cycles at this time...

Many of you have expressed a desire for an easier way to download this material for use in your bible studies and classes. I am trying to figure a way to do this. I do have an anonymous FTP site that I could use, but all of this material is written in HTML 'code' and I dont know how to 'strip' that stuff out and still keep the stuff readable. If any of you techno-gifted types have suggestions, PLEASE send them...thanks.

Two personal notes...
