I have been absent from this world for a while. I am preparing to leave Missouri and head to Illinois for a year on a vicarage assignment. I am hoping through the nest year I will be more faithful in corresponding what is transpiring in Staunton through this medium.

I am here

I am in the city of Clayton. I have recently taken the pictures that will be strewn around the Rocky Mountain, as well as other, districts in the Untied States and more excitedly I am a finalist in a drawing for a Harley Davidson Motorcycle in Colorado that I must be present to win. Se la Vie.
Over the next months weeks and years I will in the best of my ability sit down and try to connect any readers out there with the life I am going to live in here. There are sure to be darker moments as well as the lighter. Frustrations with Greek are surely a given, as well as my introspective look at the development of persons here in St. Louis that will at some time be the leaders of churches around the nation.
Nothing critical I assure you. I will not throw Professors or Colleagues under any Greyhounds. I would like to be honest and open with as little a filter as possible.

So far, there has really been little going on here at the campus. I am fulfilling all of the requirements that I am asked to effectuate and preparing for another round of informative orientation meetings. Library and Historical Society meetings abound as well afternoon sessions of basketball with newfound friends. So far, and hopefully into the future, all is well.
