I'm not big on personal mission statements--unless the quote from Robert Frost in my sidebar counts:
"My object in living is to unite / My avocation and my vocation / As my two eyes make one in sight."
But if I were forced to articulate what makes me tick, what gets me up in the morning, it would have something to do with helping students read the Bible carefully and profitably, and helping students experience why it matters. That's why I'm committed to teaching Greek and Hebrew as effectively as I can, and that's why I'm looking forward to teaching a one-week Introduction to Biblical Interpretation modular course at Briercrest Seminary at the end of August. The full syllabus is here, if anyone is interested.
The course will be offered over Zoom, so you can take it from the comfort of your living room. All you'd need is an internet connection. No travel required.
