Today my wife and I will catch a plane to Copenhagen for a series of presentations I’ve been asked to make in Denmark and Norway. The Scandinavian countries are considered among the most secular in the world, and yet there seems to be some interest in my book The Spirituality of the Cross, which has been translated into those languages. On October 1, I’ll be giving some lectures at the seminary connected to the University of Aarhus. On October 5, I’ll be speaking at a Bible college in Copenhagen. On October 7-8, I’ll be in Oslo, Norway, giving four keynote addresses at a summit meeting of Scandinavian youth ministries. (This is the group that is bringing me over and arranged the other gigs.) We’ll fly back to the states on October 10.
This blog will go on for the two weeks that I’ll be out of the country. I’ve stockpiled quite a few posts that I think you’ll find interesting to read and discuss, and I’ll schedule them to appear in the days ahead. I’ve also figured out a way for us to cover and discuss news and current events, though I’ll depend on your active participation and comments for this to work. I’ll be taking my computer and though I won’t be able to blog as I usually do, I’ll try to check in when I can. Certainly when I get back from this tour I’ll tell you all about it.
Please, please, pray for us and that my presentations will be well-received. Who knows what these little sparks might ignite?
