There would be no גֵּר־וְתוֹשָׁב if I subscribed to the dictum that blogs must be updated on a daily basis to be successful--or, I suppose, if I were committed to maintaining a popular blog. I have also successfully resisted the impulse to apologize for not blogging when life intervenes.
So this is not an apology to my handful of regular readers, it is simply a notice that I have a backlog of ideas and things to blog about when life stops intervening.
This week we spent 2-3 days moving out of our summer house-sitting arrangement in Saskatoon, and settling back into our home in Caronport. That was more time than I had planned to take off from working on the four syllabi I need to have prepared by the end of August.
Meanwhile, I wish I had time to work out some thoughts that have been gestating for the last year or so about scholarship and community. I'm looking forward to thinking aloud about possible jubilee traditions in Luke-Acts as well as the pseudepigraphal book of Jubilees itself. Of course, I also want to finish the Turkey Travelogue. And I'd like to do all this without neglecting more important things like my sabbatical research project (or my wife).
