>I am leaving today to New Orleans to attend the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL). The SBL is an organization that promotes the scholarly study of the Bible. Every year, the SBL meets in a different city (this year is New Orleans; next year it will be in Atlanta) and brings together scholars, teachers, students, religious leaders, and other persons who are interested in the critical investigation of the Bible.
Since I will be away for several days, I will not be blogging while I am in New Orleans and possibly will not be posting until after Thanksgiving.
I wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving. May the blessings and the abundance that only God can provide be yours during these days of reflection and meditation.
