Finally back in the UK and online

After two very long car journeys, a plane flight and much hassle with my laptop, I am glad to say that I have safely arrived in the UK ready not only for my new teaching position, starting on the 16th of September, but also for the London School of Theology NT conference. I am very much looking forward to meeting folk, and I gladly have the opportunity to present and receive feedback on my own paper 4 pm tomorrow afternoon, so here is my usual request for your prayers:

Dear Lord, may all the attendees at the LST NT conference blindly love Chris' paper, and may the unrighteous, those who are tempted to disagree with his obviously anointed thesis, stub at least one toe on a desk as punishment. Amen.

You start to teach? What about Theology? Are you a quitter?

AH! The Master of Mirth has returned to England! Let trumpets resound! Let small children roll out the red carpet and lots of small fairy cakes be offered up in thanksgiving.

Nice to have you home Mr T

Glad to hear you arrived safely. Of course, I will pray as requested but do be aware that this kind of prayer is only efficacious if the thesis is, in fact, anointed. :-)

I heard the paper. It's total crap. And my toe is killing me.

Great to hear you're back to virtual life! All the best for the conference, and please give my greetings to everybody (esp. Max)!

TJ, it will be teaching theology ...

I have become convinced that you are actually not a human, but an automated and slightly monotoned insult machine. I think I would like to install you on my computer actually, to use against my enemies!

Hey Robin, I look forward to meeting up. I still remember that dinner invite!

Judy, your prayers worked! They all came with stubbed toes! Especially some bloke called Mic who was the most obnoxious!

Andrew... :-))

Hey Volker, back safetly in the UK, thanks for asking. I'll say hi to Max when I see him.
