1. Church - I'm excited to get into the rhythm of worshiping with friends and being challenged by the body of Christ at Vestavia.
2. Challenge - I don't miss the homework one bit, but I miss wrestling with ideas and being forced to think through Biblical, theological, and spiritual things with my good friends at seminary.
3. Community - it's best when you're learning and living with people who love you and push you, and i'm excited to enter back into my birmingham community.
