CHOG Sunday School research

Well, it’s been an interesting spring/summer for me already. From hanging out with my sister-in-law for a month to getting a new car – a 2008 Honda Fit, something to write home about! – I’ve had a lot on my plate. In addition, I’ve been wrapping up my research on the history of the Sunday school in the Church of God. That also has been something to write home about… all my research has turned into a 36-page paper (ok, only 28 of that is text, but still…it’s my biggest paper to date), which I will be presenting at a small gathering at the North American convention of the Church of God.

Sounds pretty cool, huh? I’m excited about it. I even have a cheesy Powerpoint presentation coordinated with the paper…should be fun.

This convention is held every year in Anderson, the Mecca of the Church of God. Historically, I haven’t participated very much in these conventions, because when you’re from Mecca, making the pilgrimage just isn’t quite what it could be. But anyway, it looks like I’ll be able to spend most of a whole day (or even a day and a half) at the convention, so that should be quite interesting indeed. Lots of seminars and worship services, and the meeting of the general ministerial assembly, of which I am a card-carrying member these days.

So if you happen to read this before next Tuesday (June 24th), and if you happen to be in the Anderson area, you are more than welcome to come hear my talk (along with the talk of another student researcher, two birds with one stone). Our session is from 8:30am to 10am, Tuesday 6/24, in room 113 of the seminary building on AU’s campus.

    I love the fact that I’m not the only one who calls Anderson “Mecca”

    Good luck on the presentation. I’m confident you’ll knock ’em dead 🙂
