This morning started our first day of the "internal residency" which means that all of us in the class (only six of us) meet with our prof (Dr. Decker) to go over our readings and give presentations regarding our work for the 2nd part of the course.

Today consisted of five book reviews of 45 minutes each and discussion. I gave my review of Hays' Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul. Good book—but the historical critical ideologies permeate the book. The presentation went well and God is good.

Tomorrow I'm first up for an hour and a half presentation on Hebrews 1:5 (the 2 verses quoted by Auctor [the name by which I affectionately like to call the anonymous author]—Ps 2:7 and 2 Sam 7:14). I've got the powerpoint (actually, "keynote") ready and all my notes prepared. I'm ready for this one and excited for the rest of the week and the interaction with these Godly (and much older!) men!

Again, tonight, I walked out of the cafeteria to find snow falling from the sky. In fact, I heard that there is a "severe winter warning" in effect for Clarks Summit tonight (not sure what that means, but to me, a Californian, severe winter warning + snow = FUN!). It just may demand that I go to the on-campus coffee-shop again (man, that'll be day #2 in a row!) and purchase my coffee for $1 and walk in the snow! (Ah, can't do that too often in LA.)

God is good. If you think of me, pray for me tomorrow at 10am (EST) as I give my 1.5 hour presentation on Hebrews 1:5. Pray for wisdom, guidance, direction, and accuracy as I speak and exegete these passages for the men.

"Give thanks to the LORD for He is good; His covenant-love endures forever!" —Ps 136:1
