Back in the Saddle

I am back at my desk, after a long break over Christmas and New Year and including a week spent avoiding the Melbourne heat down on the Gippsland Lakes. The next few weeks are reasonably quiet, but there is much to do including writing an article on 2 Cor 3, finishing a couple of book reviews and preparing for classes for Semester 1.  I am teaching the following units this semester: Pauline Studies; Ethics in the New Testament and The Theology and Practice of Preaching.

There is also some significant planning to be done: for a Biblical Studies research seminar here in Melbourne, to be launched this year; a one day conference on Paul: Then and Now with John Barclay as a keynote speaker; planning for papers to be given at conferences in July; and several articles to be completed. We also are about to undertake a substantial review of the ministerial formation programme here at the Centre for Theology and Ministry.

The hope is that all this activity will in turn generate some blogging.  Watch this space.
