I'm on my way to South Africa today. Beginning on Monday, I'll be teaching a two-week intensive, ordination level course on "Luther's Theology of the Cross in Preaching & Pastoral Care." I'm grateful to Trinity Lutheran Church in Great Falls, Montana for purchasing the ticket and to the many other congregations who contributed funds to purchase textbooks for the class and books for the LTS Library. I'm carrying 100 pounds of books. I'll post some pictures and updates along the way.
