England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales: Summer 06

What a summer of travel: a conference and holiday in Scotland with parents and family followed by 2 weeks in Maine with my niece Joscelyn followed by two weeks in Ireland driving with my parents!

The SNTS conference in Aberdeen was excellent: outstanding presidential address from Sean Freyne on litererary and archaeological material from 1st C Galilee and good papers in sessions I attended. I was able to work in the UL whilst in Cambridge. And I was able to visit the Chester Beatty Library and manuscripts in Dublin.

Everyone should have a sabbatical. This fall I am learning Spanish and writing.

Rub it in, why don'tcha? :)

I forgive you. Hope your sabbatical is enriching and reenergizing -- and kudos on *Jesus' Family Values*, which I think will be an important book!

Blessings,

Dylan

Christopher will practice Spanish with you when we see you! Didn't the summer go by fast? I hope the rest of your sabbatical is restful and productive (is that an oxymoron?).

You were in Dublin? Ah that's a pity to have missed you! The Sabbatical sounds great!
