New York, NY

If you can't tell, I've been a bit busy with work and school and church. I hate it when work and school interfere with blogging! :-) I am part of a project team at work that is implementing a new help desk and change control system, and I've been pretty slammed for the past month. I am also taking Greek Syntax and Exegesis at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and I've been pretty slammed at school for the past month.

One nice benefit of working on this project at work is that they are sending me to New York city for training. We made arrangements to leave the kids with Heather's mom and dad, and Heather and I are going to make the best of the opportunity. We are flying out of Nashville, TN early on Sunday morning, and I am hoping to visit Tim Keller's Redeemer Presbyterian Church for an evening worship service. We'll be staying only a few blocks from Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, FAO Schwarz, Saks Fifth Avenue, Radio City Music Hall, and the Museum of Modern Art, and I hope to visit Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, and Ground Zero, among other places.

I am really looking forward to taking this adventure with my wife. You can purchase a 7-day, unlimited ride subway and bus pass, and I hope this will give us the ability to explore the city as much as we want.

Too bad I have to go for training and not just for vacation!
