    1. Jason,

      Thanks for stopping by. I just told a friend today that I am giving serious consideration to reading Barth’s Dogmatics in full. It would be a challenge to do so, but he seems to be so unlike all the warnings I have heard about him from ‘conservative’ theologians. Besides, I also read that Barth liked to ‘throw the furniture around.’ I like that. I hope you are enjoying your new home and your new ministry. God Bless your new year as well. Preach well.
