A New Semester Begins


This past week I began teaching two classes in the school of theology of Neema Lutheran College at Matongo, Kenya.  The school, which boasts one of the finest theological libraries in Africa, is a seminary for men training to be pastors in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, and other countries.  My family and I still live in Nairobi, but during this fall semester I’ll be commuting to Matongo for one full day of teaching each week.  In the morning I teach a three-hour class on the synoptic Gospels (Mathew, Mark, and Luke), and in the afternoon I teach a three-hour class on the General Epistles (James, 1-2 Peter, 1-3 John, and Jude).

Apart from the 2-week intensives I’ve been teaching this year in Tanzania, it’s been two full years since my last regular semester of teaching.  It goes without saying that I’m very happy to be in the classroom again!

Sorry about the lack of a photograph this week.  I completely forgot to pull out my camera while I was there.  Photos of my students will be forthcoming in future weeks!

  1. God be with you as you start your semester! I miss being in the classroom too since I retired but I still teach algebra online which is very time consuming and involves making lots of videos where you pretend that there are students in front of you. Not the easiest thing to do!
    Have fun and teach them well!
