yea for days off

well, ben finally had a day off that he could take and do anything that he wanted to. we thought it was a bit ironic because on his day off from sitting in front of a computer, he sat in front of a computer all day...hehe. he has a couple of other blogs that he is working on. i think i've mentioned before that we are hosting a Bible study taught by walton padelford on friday nights and are going throuh the book of Romans. it has been AMAZING!!!! i have never had the opportunity to be taught like this and i love it so much! ben has sat under walton's teaching before on a regular basis and to be taught by him is simply amazing. anyway, (i'm way off track) ben decided that he would type up the notes from our study and post them on a new blog. it is you can read all of his notes. i actually accidently got on another one, and it seemed that it might have some cool things on it, too. the other blog that ben is working on is one called southern orthodoxy. This is a magazine idea that he has had for awhile now and it is just now coming to somewhat of fruition. it's really exciting and if it ever does become a real magazine, it would be really really cool. so, if you know any publishers, let us know. :) also, e-mail us and let ben know what you think about southern orthodoxy. we'd love to hear your take on the Gospel.
on another hand, we are going to take a little trip to chattanooga to simply get away for a weekend. we took sunday off of church and are leaving on friday and will return sunday. we really don't have any plans...we've talke about alot of things, but haven't nailed down anything, we're just excited about getting out of jackson away from the norm and having a little time to ourselves. with that said, we have to go to bedb bath and beyond. (i love that store) to get more towels. we hope all is well with everyone and hope to hear from you soon!!!

This is just a "hi", Janie . . . I saw your link to this blog on MySpace, so I thought I'd stop by.

Good to see that you guys are doing well. Stuff's going alright for us up in Ohio . . . insanely enough, I'm about to come on staff full-time at my church. Crazy how God brings about the worst imaginable situations (like me losing my job in Jackson and having to move) to bring about his purposes (like this oppotunity to do urban church ministry up north). Soli Deo Gloria!

I've rambled enough. Let's keep in touch.
