Occasionally, I like to ask my readers to introduce themselves to me and to one another. This has always been a very encouraging exercise in the past. So, please introduce yourself in the comments here… even if you’ve never commented before.
Simple tell as much or as little as you want people to know about you. I will even accept anonymous comments.
I’ll get the ball rolling.
Hi. My name is Alan Knox. I’m 43 years old (or young, depending on which side of 43 you happen to be on). I grew up in Alabama (USA), and went to college at Georgia Tech in Electrical Engineering. I’m married to Margaret. We met in the fourth grade and grew up with one another. We have two children, a son named Jeremy and a daughter named Miranda. We’ve lived in Alabama, the Atlanta (GA) metro area, and (now) in Youngsville, NC near Raleigh.
I work in web development. I both work at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in their IT department, and I work for myself.
I’m a PhD student in Biblical Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. My PhD mentor is David Black. I’ve finished all of my seminars and course work, and I’ve had my prospectus approved. That means that the only thing left is writing and defending a dissertation. The title of my dissertation is “Mutual Edification as the Purpose of the Assembled Church in the New Testament: A Study in Biblical Theology.”
I’ve been blogging here for just over four years, and I decided from the beginning that I was going to focus on the church, primarily the meeting of the church. Why? Because I started this blog at the same time that I started my PhD studies, and in my PhD studies I was going to focus on the meeting of the church. But, there’s another reason. You see… I’m part of the church. And, I wanted to know what the church should do when we meet together, and why. So, as I study, I also try to live these things out. This is not simply an academic exercise for me… it is life.
I love blogging very much. The best thing about blogging is the interaction from people like you.
So… please introduce yourself also.
