Sarah and I are now back in Princeton. We accumulated over 6,000 miles on our Yaris, listened to some really amazing books on CD, including Thomas Friedman’s “The World is Flat” and the entire “His Dark Materials” Trilogy by Philip Pullman. 9am Saturday morning we’ll be sitting in the basement of the Mackay Campus Center at Princeton taking our final exam for the PC(USA) ordination process: Church Polity. We have to write about 10 pages of material on church polity, government and discipline in 3 hours and then someone has to say, “Yup – you get it!” and then we can be done with one more hoop in this whole ordination process. So, if you’re thinking of us, and everyone else who will be taking the exam, around 9am-noon EST, shoot us up a prayer. Over the next three weeks, I have some plans for some interesting and hopefully thought-provoking posts for this blog – so keep an eye out for that.
