My wife Janet has locked me away in enforced isolation and limits my email and internet to ten minutes a day :-)  I am sneaking out right now to update everyone.

Actually, I agreed to write a Bible Study on Joshua, Judges & Ruth, three fascinating books in the Old Testament. They will be offered this fall through www.CatholicScriptureStudy.com. Later they will be combined into one book of about 300 pages published by Ignatius Press.

We’ll see you in Denton this month!
Take care.

Don’t burn yourself out, you are too valuable to the faith. Take some time for yourself, I agree with Janet! Things work better if the batteries are fresh.
