These past two years

I'm sure this will be a surprise in your rss readers, assuming kirchenlieder is still in them. I've been considering the things that have happened in my life over the past two years, and have decided to blog about them. I'll probably do a weekly post until I get it all processed. These past two years my wife Amy has been a post-doctoral fellow at the John Wesley Honors College at Indiana Wesleyan University, and I have been teaching as an adjunct. We will be moving to Wheaton this summer, where Amy has accepted a tenure-track position teaching New Testament, so our time here has been and is ever growing short.

These two years were a wonderful, formative time in our lives. Probably not as formative as living in  Princeton for eight years, but a good followup to our time there. Over the next few weeks I'm going to blog about (in no particular order) teaching worship, teaching fine arts along with aesthetics, being in the John Wesley Honors College community, learning about community in general, being in a holiness context, having a second child, having two professors along with two children in a house, buying an old house, being confirmed into the Episcopal church, having no regular church position, living in a small town, and probably a few more things. It will be helpful for me to process our time here, plus some things will raise issues that I'm sure some of you might have some comments to add to.
