Celebrating with the family

Congratulations are in order for Sten-Erik, one of our contributors here at Christians In Context! He has been offered (and subsequently accepted) the position of Associate Director of the Department of Spiritual Formation and Leadership at Dallas Theological Seminary.

In Sten-Erik's own words, "In the space of two weeks we went from being without a home, job, or educational future to having a home, a job, and a fully-funded educational future! To God alone be the glory!

"God provided me not merely with a job that would provide an income and benefits. God provided me with a ministry about which I am passionate, working with men and women I know and love, and serving the institution that has served me so well. One of the benefits of this new position at the seminary is a tuition benefit. My Ph.D. (with the exception of the required books) has become fully funded"

We're celebrating with you, brother! (And now we're all expecting some stellar blog posts from that fully-funded education.)

There are even more things we're celebrating here at CIC (including a long awaited project finally wrapping up with Zondervan), but we'll say more about that later.

Thanks all - I'm still in a state of (delighted) shock. It's humbling and exciting!
