In less than 2 weeks I begin working as a Research Assistant at a major research univeristy. This will be a whole new world for me. Can’t wait to get into it.

I’ll be working with profs who are incredible researchers – an dpretty nice people, too.

I have been hanging out at a church called Solomon’s Porch. It’s different on the surface and deeply from my Restoration roots, but there are many similarities.

Differences:

Setup in auditorium, instrumental worship, interactive sermon, baptism, decentralized information flow.

Similarities:

Bible based, seeking to be like Jesus, baptism by immersion, weekly communion.

From a theological perspective, there seems to be a lot more flexibility at Solomon’s Porch than at any of the churches I have attended in the past. Since SP is not part of a denomination and is not a church with a lot of years behind it, the flexibility does make some sense. The challenge for SP will be over the years. will it settle into an inflexible way of being. Time will tell.

Public transit. I will ride the bus 4 days a week from the burbs to the city. I wanted to live in the city, but that just didn’t work out.
