It was wonderful to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mother, who turns 99 in October. I was able to sit by her and my three brothers at the opening session of the Twin Lakes Church Bible Conference in Aptos, California. Two people said how pleased they were that I was able to sit by my wife! When Mom heard about it she laughed out loud! She attended my session and understood it and our frequent theological discussions that week.

Response was enthusiastic to my three seminars on Women in Church Leadership. It looked like all sixty books they ordered were grabbed. Following a special session the following Tuesday with PowerPoint slides and Q&A for the whole staff and interns, René Schlaepfer, their lead pastor, promised to buy a copy of The Bible vs. Biblical Womanhood for each of them.

I also had wonderful Q&A sessions that next week with the pastors of Santa Cruz Bible Church and Vintage Faith Church and memorable hikes along the Pacific coast and in the redwoods with my brothers John and Peter. John and I also jogged 2.4 miles every other day around the Henry Cowell Big Trees loop trail. 

On May 17, 2023 The Christian Post Published “Mutual submission in 1 Peter 3:1-7: Husband submit to wife? Here Peter also not only commands wives to submit themselves to their own husbands, but also commands husbands to submit themselves to their own wives and to honor their wives as joint heirs of the gracious gift of life.” You can download it here
