Born-Again Brethren in Christ: Week #13 – Slowing Down

busyClick here for some background on this post.

After last week’s good progress on the manuscript, this week I spent almost no time on “Born-Again Brethren in Christ.” This means I’m back where I was during the early weeks of this project. It’s not for lack of desire to finish this project (although I must admit that I’m growing weary of constantly thinking about the Brethren in Christ and Evangelicalism). Mostly I’m slowing down because I need to speed up on other things: the upcoming Sider Institute study conference; other projects at Messiah College and Mennonite World Conference; and home stuff.

What does this mean for my essay? Will I have time to work on it in the coming weeks? I certainly hope so. The manuscript is sitting in a folder on my desk; a Post-it note covered in still-unanswered research questions is tacked to the front of the folder. If I’m going to do this project well, I’ll need to spend some more time in the archives in addition to spending time in front of the computer screen.

Stay tuned!
