Its been a long time since I've posted anything here, and I regret the lengthy delay. Life has been pretty crazy as of late, so I may not be able to post anything for a while. I graduated from college a little over a month ago, got married three weeks ago, and have been tied up with all sorts of stuff in terms of preparation for moving to Russia in August. I have also been working on studying for the GRE, so I have not had much time to post anything here. I have been thinking alot about faith and have many ideas of things that I would like to write about more extensively (like the nature of the "last days" and the apocalyptic tone of many of Jesus' words), but for the moment they will probably remain thoughts written in my journal. I have no plans to abandon this blog, but it will probably have to wait until I get settled in and have a regular internet connection in Russia. I apologize for this little hiatus, and hopefully will return soon to continue to work out my thoughts on following Christ and living in His kingdom.
