Headed down to Regent University on Wednesday.  I’ll speak at the University Chapel at Noon. Then I defend my dissertation in the afternoon.  I did the coursework for a Doctor of Ministry degree more than a decade ago. I’ve been ABD, All But Dissertation, ever since. I honestly never thought I’d do the dissertation because I started writing books.  With a growing family and growing church, I just put the dissertation on the backburner.  Better late than never. Grateful to the Regent University faculty and administration for the opportunity.
