Today my wife and I fly off to Finland. I will be giving lectures at an apologetics conference and speaking at two universities. I’ll also be meeting with the confessional Lutherans there, including Rev. Jujana Puhjola.
Earlier, I was in Denmark and Norway, and then Denmark again. As I said then, the image of the secularist Scandinavians is not completely true. I have been meeting lots of very devoted Christians. My book Spirituality of the Cross has been translated into the Scandinavian languages and it’s getting some readers. I am touched at the thought that I might be used in some measure to be part of a revival of Christianity–indeed, Lutheran Christianity–among the delightful people in these fascinating countries.
So what does this mean for the blog? I am not going to take away from my Scandinavian moments by constantly monitoring the internet and blogging all the time. I am not sure of my internet connections, seeing as how at least part of the time I’ll be in the deep woods. But I’ll post when I can. I probably won’t be able to post as many items every day. There may be days when I don’t post any at all. But I’ve got some very interesting posts scheduled to come up through the week. I’ll be back in the states the first of May.
You might say a prayer for us from time to time.
