As some TSOW readers may have gathered, my dear old Dad passed away about three weeks ago. He was a great man. I miss him–but in a healthy way, the way you miss someone you know you’ll see again some day, God willing. I want to say thank you–thank you so much–to all of you who prayed for me and my Dad, sent me emails, posted condolences on Twitter (which, I suppose, ought to be called “Tweetolences”), left warm, supportive comments either for me or by way of Hallie. So many good people out there.
And at the risk of this sounding like some kind of awards speech, I’d also like to say thank you to everybody who came out to my presentation for Theology on Tap in Cincinnati. You people were amazingly encouraging and enthusiastic. It helped a lot, I think, that your senses of humor were as offbeat as my own.
God bless everybody–is that over the top? Well, too late. I wrote it. Back again for more TSOW posts soon!
