Hey, Pastor, Want a Sabbatical?

If so, then you should consider applying for a Pastoral Sabbatical Grant at the Louisville Institute.  I won one in 2003 and as a result traveled the world and wrote a book (two, actually).  I highly recommend it…

Back to Princeton

Last week, I spent two days at Princeton, speaking at the annual youth ministry conference. I’ve always got mixed feelings when I go back — a love of the people there, and an aversion to the bureaucracy and to New Jersey in general.

In happy news, I recently found out that I won a dissertation grant from the Louisville Institute, so I’ll be hunkering down and finally writing that massive term paper next fall/winter/spring.
