This past week, Juergen von Hagen and I have shared our second annual writing retreat up here in Sawyer, Michigan. Kindness of Dad and Mom Taylor, we have a place to stay as we work. We start writing around 9 each morning and break for nothing until dinner around 7:30. Juergen is working on a textbook on economics for seminarians and I'm trying to finish up the book on fatherhood. We've had tons of snow and today got six more inches. We took a walk that lasted a couple hours. It was snowing hard and our faces were snowmen when we got back. Before going into the house, Juergen had a hack at a little shovelling. Check out the icicles!
After we talked with our wives and did a little more work at our computers, we went down the street to the local microbrewery, Greenbush Brewing Company, and had a snifter of a new brew just released.
That's my report from the northlands. Looking forward to our pastors/church officers conference in two days. Hope you'll be there.
