After a gentle rebuke…

July 14, 2009

I have decided to divide my blog thoughts into two separate entries:

here (adubhigg) will be devoted to SBc life matter

there (2Tim22) will be focusing on developing an online discipleship community…we’re using some code words over there to get us past any censors in the hopes of letting the community go transoceanic

So, Blake and any others that want to read that one and not this one (because you’re not SBC and don’t care!), reset your blog reader to http://2tim22.wordpress.com/ and follow the other, less strident conversation!

FYI: Theology Musings (starting in the fall again) will still be posted here as they don’t really fit the foundational level I’m at over at the other site.

Hope to blog at length soon…

Between Convention, seeing out-of-town friends (going to them!), and summer classes (teaching AND taking!), I’ve been lax in posting. Also, I am purposely avoiding talking about some of the denominational hoopla (at least, only in short and hopefully civil comments on other blogs).

As soon as I find time…and something else to talk about, I will post, my devoted reader(s)!

School is back in session…

September 15, 2008

…and I have been a blog-slacker! Sorry! Will return to regular (weekly, if not more) writing soon.

Will finish my discussion of SBC life and then start into a broader view of theology (i.e. you get to see some past assignments of mine!)

Now we’re going to slow down…

September 17, 2007

Okay, I admit I was a little ambitious with my five chapters per week blogging schedule (no comments from the peanut gallery!) Also, I didn’t realize how intensive it is to not make blatant and near-heretic mistakes when teaching on a passage over the internet (thank you Dr. Tomlinson)! So, we’re going to slow this bad boy down!

New schedule: Once a week I blog on a Bible chapter, maybe do two if I feel up to it! When I can, usually four times a week, I’ll blog on the happenings here at MBTS. I’ll also promulgate my opines about various subjects and what-nots…beginning now!

This goes out to Blake!

September 8, 2007

After what seems like eons of silence, I have returned to the blogosphere once again, my children! (For those of you new to my domain, please see fiveformfaith.wordpress.com) Blake has asked and I have answered! (BTW,Blake, you too need to blog your experiences as one from the Dirty South moved up to the Big Apple!)

 Here’s  how it is going to go each week:

MONDAY: I’ll post an entry on the Pentateuch and Revelation. As I calculate it, It will take me 243 weeks (50 chapters in Genesis + 40 in Exodus + 27 in Leviticus + 36 in Numbers + 34 in Deuteronomy + 22 in Revelation + 7 days of creation + 12 tribes of Israel + 10 commandments + 7 churches -Revelation 2 & 3).

TUESDAY: I’ll post an entry on the Old Testament History (Joshua – Esther). = 249 weeks.

WEDNESDAY: I’ll post an entry on the Old Testament Poetry (Job – Song of Solomon) = 243 weeks (since Psalm 119 will be divided out into 22 entries due to its length and structure).

THURSDAY: I’ll post an entry on the Old Testament Prophecy (Isaiah – Malachi) = 250 weeks.

FRIDAY: I’ll post an entry on theNew Testament (without Revelation) = 238 weeks.

 So basically I have proposed a five-year blogging arc!

SATURDAY: I’ll blog about the happenings of the previous week here at MBTS (see below for more details). Offline, I’ll work up the next week’s entries a la Scot McKnight to be posted each following weekday.

Details:

My name is A.W. or A-dub and I am the Higg (or AndyHigg) that occasionally visits other blogs and, not unlike the Tooth Fairy, leaves behind a valuable nugget of my wisdom. I am, at present, a seminary student at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MBTS)…at this point, my classmates know exactly who I am, but hopefully, to the world at large, I am still quite anonymous! I am also unemployed, but looking for a job, and single, but looking for a lady — in short, I am quite pathetic and men should send me money and women should date me!

 Hopefully, this time school won’t get in the way of the more important task of pontificating on the internet! Welcome all and hope to see you often!
