Off to Nebraska…

I’ve been extremely busy reading, writing and teaching (besides the whole husband/father thing). After hours of studying and organizing thoughts to present for the church here, as well as for Spanish classes and my ongoing graduate work, the last thing I feel like doing is… well, studying and organizing thoughts to present in yet another forum. (A blog.)

Anyway, I’m flying out to Lincoln, Nebraska, in a few hours’ time for a weekend series with a church there. I’ve been asked to speak on themes relating to The Bible and Archaeology. Specifically, these topics:

  • “Is the World of the Bible Real?”
  • “Lands, Cities and Battles”
  • “Amazing Artifacts and Discoveries”

I’ll have a good 6-1/2 or 7 hours to spend on these subjects over the weekend, but there will be no shortage of information to discuss.

This will be my first trip to Nebraska. I’m looking forward to meeting new people, as well as indulging in some pleasant weather. Living in Central Florida, there are times when you’d give up a major organ to experience daytime temperatures under 80 degrees.

    Hi Luke,

    I am writing to you in regards to a photo you posted of Hezekiah’s Tunnel in 2009. I work at Willow Creek Community Church in Barrington, IL and our pastor is looking to show one of your photos in his message. Might you grant us permission to show this? We would so appreciate it.
    Blessings,
    Rhianna Godfrey

      The photo may certainly be used. All I ask is that this blog be credited at the bottom of the photo.

      Thank you for inquiring!
      – Luke

    Have a good trip Luke … and it looks like my schedule will allow me to visit here more often.

      Thanks for the well wishes. The trip was very enjoyable. Met some great people, presented some (hopefully interesting) lessons, and learned a good bit about Lincoln, Nebraska’s well-developed coffee culture along the way. I’m glad your schedule appears to be easing up a bit, especially with the Reds in the playoffs. (More time to watch them.) Thanks for commenting. I’ve been slow with posts for a few weeks but hope to add some new information soon. Lots of excavation results are beginning to become available from the summer season.
