Free at Last! Free at Last! Thank God Almighty, I'm Free at Last!

For those of you who are wondering why I fell off the face of the blogster-earth...I was trapped by my finals and papers in my last weeks at Westminster Theological Seminary. Thankfully, however, I will graduate this Thursday (hence the above title). WTS has been a great place to study and prepare for ministry. A special thanks goes out to:

Dr. Doug Green, for all the free commentaries he gave me and for putting up with me barging into his office almost everyday to shoot the breeze; Dr. Pete Enns and family who were kind enough to leave the light on for me for two years; Prof. Mike Kelly for all the great homebrew Scottish Ale and conversation on his porch; Prof. Steve Taylor for all the hours I took away from his own work to discuss Paul (but discussing Paul is a must!); to Dr. Paul David Tripp for all the 6:15am coffee meetings at Starbucks with the hopes of seeing me grow into a credible minister of the Word and God-honoring husband; and to all the friends I made over the last four years who put up with a brash NYer on campus (you know who you are). And last, but not least, the warmest of thanks to my wife Yi Ya who supported me both financially, emotionally and spiritually...thanks Sweetie, you must really love me!

Finally, I'm happy to report that I'll be working at Astoria Community Church, PCA, beginning June 15, 2004 thanks to Rev. David Ellis, Rev. Darcy Caires and the Redeemer Church Planting Center in NYC.

Praises to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
