Time for an Update

Time for an Update

I’ve been silent for a long time. I deleted my social media accounts, and made a commitment to remove my presence from the internet in general for a year, so here I am. There has been a lot of turmoil but also a ton of growth.

So as I sit here in my hotel room in Chicago, I wanted to give a few updates about where I’m at and what is going on so that you can have some context for the writings that I have coming down the pipe:

  1. Im writing a book.
    It is centered on the ”I Am” statements of Jesus in the Gospel of John. I turned in my manuscript two weeks ago and it was well received, though this is just the beginning of the journey as there will likely be several revisions before its ready to be put out there. I’ll be sure to post updates here as things progress.
  2. I’m going to Turkey.
    I am catching a flight tomorrow night at 9:45 to Istanbul where I will be studying the missionary journey of the Apostle Paul with Scot McKnight and my Seminary Cohort from Northern Seminary in Chicago. I plan on blogging my way through the 13 day journey, so feel free to tag along.
    Which brings me to my next point…
  3. Last weekend I received an MA in New Testament.
    …from the afore mentioned Northern Baptist Theological Seminary. It has been life-changing, and has formed me deeply in ways that I am still processing. I will be writing much about the things that I have learned in the coming months.

  4. I’m going on tour.
    The band and I will be heading to Europe in August as I have been invited to play this years FreakStock Festival in Germany. I’ll be posting the festival date as well as other shows in/around Germany as they are booked.
    (If you have a venue in Germany, The Czech Republic, Belgium, France, or in a neighboring country and would like us to come and play, reach out and we’ll talk!)

Here is a quick hello from the fam at rest from the top of Sears Tower.
We are 2 years older, but 10 years wiser.

Thats all for now, but I will be attempting a regular writing schedule so as to teach whoever cares to read about the things that the Spirit has been guiding me towards. Perhaps you will gleam something from it.

Grace and Peace,
Thomas Preson Phillips
