Classes start at Butler University this week. I find it useful to look back over the summer’s activities, not only because blog readers may be interested, but also because I find it encouraging to look back and realize that something was accomplished!
I taught my course on the Bible online to two sections of students for the first time.
I worked on a commentary on the Mandaean Book of John, wrote several book reviews, and finished a few other writing projects.
I put the finishing touches on a volume I co-edited with Andrew Crome, Time and Relative Dimensions in Faith: Religion and Doctor Who. (And for those in the UK, don’t miss the day conference on this topic at the University of Manchester in November!)
I helped to plan this year’s public lecture series, on “Freedom of Expression and Religion,” and the course that will run in conjunction with it.
I also began taking singing lessons.
What did you do this past summer?
