I recently made a trip to Turkey to teach writing at a conference of theological educators (and to tour the seven churches of Revelation). You can read details and see pictures on my travel blog, Wide-eyed Wanderer. Look at the November 2015 entries in the archive on the right. To read in chronological order, begin at the bottom.
You haven't heard from me in a while because I have been in Croatia and it's not smart to announce to the cyber-world that you are not home. I've been dusting off my library skills to catalog for Evangelical Theological Seminary in Osijek. I have been here several times before, beginning in 1993 just after the war for independence from the former Yugoslavia.
The library is in a beautiful new building whose glass sides inspired lots of photos
My husband works for ICETE—International Council for Evangelical Theological Education—the umbrella organization for the various regional accrediting councils for theological schools. Every three years ICETE holds an international consultation of the leadership of some of the top theological training programs in the majority world. This year the consultation was in Nairobi. My husband asked me to come along to meet all the people he works with.
Nairobi is beautiful at this time of year with jacaranda and bougainvillea in bloom and the smell of fresh-cut grass. (Okay, there are other smells in other parts of the city, but at the Kenya Commercial Bank Learning Center in Karen, those are the sites and scents that predominate.)
