it's shaping up to be a great summer

Here are just a few of the reasons I'm looking so forward to this Summer:

1) We get to finally meet Judah!

2) Mom and Dad are coming to the States to meet their first grandchild.

3) I'm going to grill entire herds of cattle, packs of hotdogs, schools of fish and whatever else Leslie brings near the house.

4) I'm going to read books that I want to read not books assigned on a syllabus. A few of those books include:

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Gospel-Powered Parenting by William Farley

And this might be a bit overly ambitious but...City of God by Augustine

5) The WORLD CUP!!! Unfortunately I can't attend in person...but Judah and I will get to spend some good bonding time watching it together on ESPN.

6) The 3rd Lausanne Conference is in South Africa this Summer. I'm look forward to hearing and reading all about it.

7) It's a really big Summer for the Southern Baptist Convention. This year's annual meeting in Orlando is shaping up to be a historic moment in Baptist history. I'm looking forward to watching it unfold as it is streamed live online.

8) I'm going to have the opportunity to teach/preach 5 nights in a row at Deep Impact, a week long camp put on by North Carolina Baptist Men in Red Springs, NC. Inspired by our trip to Athens a few years ago I'm thinking of using Acts 17 and Paul on Mars Hill.
