Well, I'm going on holiday from now until the 1st of Oct. It'll be a great time to catch up on some necessary reading, planning my BIG DAY, and just chilling out in the surf.

I have much work to do on James and am enjoying applying Hurtado's grid to this letter. Whether or not it will yield fresh insights or merely suggest that James' vision of devotion to Jesus is akin to Paul's, is another question which only time [and critical evaluation by peers] will tell.

So to those still slogging away, give it your best but don't over do it. You may love work as much as you like, but it will never love you back. So don't forsake your family or friends.

I'm off to the beach, it's a sunny day, no cloud in the sky and it appears the Almighty has provided a stunning set coming through with a slight off-shore wind.

"You may love work as much as you like, but it will never love you back." I like it! Very good point. I've often told fellow students at seminary that one of the greatest "trials" they are going to have at seminary (and in ministry) is to gain a degree without losing their soul or their family. Better a paper with B on it than a notice of divorce!

Blessings as you rest Sean!
