With the end of the semester, preparation for a new one begins. I will be teaching an introduction to dogmatics course next fall as the Luther Academy begins implementing its revised curriculum. My colleague, Dr. John Bombaro, is working on creating the English-language versions of the first year courses of this curriculum. John is back in the U.S. for a while in order to make use of LCMS college and seminary resources.
In the meantime, Connie and I have had a chance for a little “R & R” by traveling by car around Vidzeme region.
Little Latvia has a long history: we visited crusader castles from the 12th and 13th centuries, a Soviet bunker from the 1980s, and churches that date from in-between. We’ve had a chance to view storks (and they us) and to watch the sun go down over the Baltic.
We keep our own country in prayer during these times of health and civic crises. Our prayers and thanks go out especially for our supporters and partners.
MAY THE LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU!
Yours in Christ,
Chuck & Connie Cortright
