News & Updates

Contained within this page are dated entries revolving around updates and news about the work here as well as related material. Feel free to peruse the content below!

4.1.2023 – I’m simplifying the Simply Me page as I wish to minimize this site being about me. As part of this, I’ll be retiring the articles I wrote each titled “On X” and instead providing brief descriptions. As I remove them one by one, the links will be removed.

6.16.2022 – The ups and downs keep on coming but the work continues onward. Posting has been rather irregular this year but efforts are now in the works to return to a regular posting schedule of once per week. The intention is to get this going come July. In the meantime, bugs in scheduling and preparatory work will be put in to make this goal a success. Reviews will also be made of the site and possible changes will be considered.

11.21.2021 – It has been a year of many ups/downs and significant struggles. Nevertheless, more content is coming. I have yet to decide whether this December’s posts will be every day as it has been done before. Regardless, I still plan to up the number of posts as we come into the holidays and finish the 2021 year. I thank you for your prayers rendered as I’ve stuck to posting through it all and I welcome further prayers as I aim to finish 2021 well. May the Lord Bless you and Keep you!

2.10.2021 – I will be stepping away from further posts for the next weeks, likely till the end of February. Reasons are varied but they include life circumstances and some crunch time for school stuff. I’ll be back after the short break.

11/28/2020 – I’m planning a similar posting spree as I conducted last December. I will also be adding the donations form to other pages. I’m contemplating a version of it for the home page. I’ve already simplified the sidebar to reduce content there–same with footer. Also, with the high number of posts that have been produced here, I am changing the homepage display to only show an excerpt. This way more can fit on a page before having to hit “older posts.”

11/24/2020 – Reader numbers have increased and I’ve finally launched long-awaited projects and posts. I’ve made further updates to navigation and intend to do so further as those decisions are finalized. Donations have been enabled and the form can be found on the About page.

10/1/2020 – Dispelling Myths dedicated page is now up. First post is already listed there and will go live shortly.

9/9/2020 – I’ve completed various updates to make different posts more unified that are related and there will be more to come on this. Expect the first post Dispelling Myths to be coming soon

7.16.2020 – Updates made to the Greek & Hebrew page. Finally added links to the Hebrew Tidbits there. Reviewing other content to add to this routinely visited page by users.

7.14.2020 – I have begun work on a new series and new supporting page for that series that will focus entirely on addressing popular or common misconceptions regarding Christianity. These will occur alongside other material posted. No particular schedule to be released at this time.

7.7.2020 – Site updates again today. Main item of note would be to the On Alcohol article which can be found under the Simple Me in the navigation. Other articles remain under construction for future posting. These include one On Worship, On Social Justice, further additions to -ologies & Key Terms and so on.

6.22.2020 – Things are in the process of getting back to regular posting. Currently in the process of making updates as well.

4/27/2020 – I am currently on a bit of a hiatus as I have reached a school crunch time and need to focus entirely toward those efforts. Nevertheless, I haven’t been idle and have laid out things from my return. This will include long intended additions to the -ologies & Key Terms section as well as more of Psalm 119 in Hebrew and English. In addition, I’ve been on and off working toward a project I’ve simply titled Sodom & Gomorrah. I mean the work for that project to one day be a book but as I work toward that, I will be making posts from studies. My hiatus may be more than a week or two at this juncture. Check back here or Facebook for updates.

4/2/2020 – Despite the very real struggles that we have all fallen under in the world, life goes on as usual in my case–though perhaps will a little more at-home time now. Please join me in prayer for our leaders, nation, families, and fellow Church members as we continue forward each day bearing witness to the hope that is inside us! Remember, we are not of this world! Point them to Christ!

3/8/2020 – Made several site updates to pages and posts as well as prepped the next post to be coming later this week. Things continue to be rather busy. I thank you for your prayers and welcome them further. Content will continue to come though it will remain slow for the time being under my current workload at least. I do intend to attend the Ligonier Conference this year that is quickly approaching. If you are attending, perhaps I’ll see you there!

1/29/2020 – Between my own health and need to reorganize some things as I’m diving into a new semester at seminary, I’m not posting anything at least for another week. Feel free to use the content already generated. I’ll be back at it before too long.

12/1/2019 – The holiday posting has begun! Expect to see a post each day of December!

10/1/2019 – I haven’t forgotten Greek lately but I have been working intently on Hebrew. Alongside my other studies, it is taking up much of my time and away from what I spent on my Greek word of the week. I’m currently tossing around what I will be doing with that. In the meantime, I continue to do the regular quote posts and add to my list of “positions” or where I stand on different areas in theology & doctrine within the Church.

9/9/2019 – I’ve begun to take Hebrew as well as release posts on where I stand on various topics in theology. I’ve already updated the Greek & Hebrew page preparing to add more content there to help you and others who may become interested in studying Hebrew. The Simply Me section is where you will find direct links to the posts I’ve made on different ares of theology.

8/4/2019 – Out of town this week for a funeral so no usual posts for the beginning of this week. However, I’ve been working on some other material that is likely to come out later so stay tuned.

7/17/2019 – Updated the About Me page and includes a section to make space for posts involving where I stand on various things in Christianity.

6/13/2019 – I feel like I’m always multiplying my projects but such things keep me busy and out of trouble so I keep piling them on! I’ve got 4 going just on another site alone. Here, I’ve got Covenantal vs. Dispensational Theology and now I’ll be working on another focused on Sodom and Gomorrah. This second one I’m thinking of making into a book though it is inevitable material from it will be making its way here. Stay tuned to hear more!

6/11/2019 – A severe migraine derailed my regular posts the beginning of this week so I apologize for not getting those out. Expect them to be back next week. Thankfully, I don’t get that sort of migraine too often anymore as they entirely exhaust me and leave me feeling fatigued well into the next day but I still get them from time to time. I welcome your prayers as I continue to battle them and improve my overall health. I will continue to post and plan future content.

4/16/2019 – My return and new content is coming. As my health begins to get in order, my priorities have changed and I’m looking forward to new opportunities and new topics to address.

3/11/2019 – For health reasons, I will be stepping away from further posting for a time. Please enjoy and make use of the the content already in place while I am out. Thank you and I welcome you prayers!

2/4/2019 – First update of 2019. Holidays to now have had plenty of ups and downs. I appreciate you continued prayers. I’m getting myself reorganized and cutting out clutter as well as other distractions. Health… could be better certainly but at least some of that is going to be around long-term so I’ve just gotta work around it. I’ve got a backlog of things I intend to do with the site so expect more to come!

11/12/2018 – At this point, I’m in a transition as I prepare for another series. I have things I intend to post; however, various constraints have kept me from giving such posts their due diligence. I will not post something without giving it the optimum time & effort. I hope to have something up by this next Saturday.

10/8/2018 – With multiple posts up during the week and my being ill over the weekend, there was no post for Sunday the 7th. I intend to be back to the “-ologies & Key Terms” series nex sunday. In the meantime, I’ve added additional links for Greek study helps.

10/2/2018 – As I am currently studying Greek, I have created a page for the study of biblical languages in order to have a place to find help for such studies. I’ve already got one document on there for people to download with more planned. I got the idea after finding that I couldn’t find the practice/study aid I was looking for already made, so I’ve decided to make my own and post them on that page.

As I study, I’m learning things that I want to share. As such, expect the number of posts to begin to more consistently increase from the 1/week.

Once again, thank you for those who’ve been praying for my health. Migraine frequency has gone down now to much more manageable levels. Thank you!

9/2/2018 – I put up the new theme image for the -ologies & Key Terms series. That image will be on all the posts of this series going forward. I’ve already gone back and added it to the previous posts. Those of you who have been praying for my health, I thank you! It is confirmed that I have all the traits of a chronic migrainer so I should expect them to continue but I’m progressively figuring things out that diminish their frequency and intensity.

8/2/2018 – I’ve been doing a bit of clean-up and updating to content today on this site. This includes additions to the Just me… page under About. The migraine issue persists much as in my last update. I’m actually taking something for it now regularly but I’m not convinced that what was prescribed is having an impact as I’ve already had 1 while on the medication. We’ll see how it goes from here. I have plans for further graphical updates to the blog that will come in time.

7/21/2018 – We keep pushing forward! I’m taking Koine Greek this coming fall and am currently working on winding down other courses I’m currently taking. Migraines continue but I’ve gotten into a pattern of taking something for it as soon as it looks like I’m getting a headache which is helping. Hoping to see a neurologist soon. I appreciate your prayers as I continue to work through this.

7/1/2018 – These last few weeks my Sunday posts have come a little later than usual and this is in large part because of some of my health issues. A key element of this is that I’ve become a chronic migrainer. Even so, content will still come! I welcome your prayers!
