pepperdine2I’d been planning on being at the Pepperdine lectureship for nearly a year now, and scheduled to teach two classes on baptism. Unfortunately, my arthritis has badly flared and I can’t handle either the flight or the walking.

I was counting on hearing the inestimable N.T. Wright speak and meeting him in person as a faculty member, but I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

I was looking forward especially to meeting many of my readers, some for the first time. Maybe another time …

    I’m so sorry, Jay. You are the reason I read N.T. Wright. You will be in my prayers tonight. Thank you for all your work on this blog. So many times you put into words how I am feeling, and I often steal your material to make intelligent remarks in Bible class. Peace be with you.

    Malibu is not Heaven. The Spirit may need you in another place to love and share with someone in need.

    Jay, sorry about that. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  4. Mark says:

    Can you still speak there by video conferencing?

    You have my sympathy, Jay. I keep abreast of medical research and have for years. Here are things you might try:
    1) Broccoli sprouts. They have found that sulforaphane stops arthritic inflammation. A drug based on this substance (sulforadex) is being tested.
    2) Fish oil with aspirin. The two apparently have a synergistic effect on inflammation.
    3) Other anti-inflammatory natural substances like turmeric, ginger and garlic. These might be best ingested in homemade “smoothie”.

    I know it is a disappointment for you as well as many others wanting to hear your class material.

    God’s comfort be with you.

    I pray for a quick recovery. At 86, nearly 87 years of age, I also have better days and less-good days. I wish you were completely healthy and will pray that God will send good health your way.

    I’m so sorry! How disappointing! I pray you find relief for your arthritis!
