Yesterday I defended my paper on the Isreli-Palestinian conflict and since it seems to have gone pretty well, this means that I know can graduate with a bachelor’s degree in peace and development studies. And it’s summer break! Now, I will get much-needed time to work on some really cool projects that I’ve felt God wants me to do.
First of all, I will spend more time writing on my book. An American publisher has given me the opportunity and honor to publish a work on church history through them. The main thesis of the book is that Christian movements that have emphasized evangelism and miracles have almost always also emphasized peace, justice and social activism. I hope to get the project finished by the end of this year.
Secondly, I will release my very first documentary film. It’s about how the Jesus Army in the UK practice community of goods, and will hopefully give insights on how it’s not only possible but also really nice to share all one’s stuff with others. Half the movie is already edited, and I hope to get this thing done this summer.
Thirdly, I will of course continue to blog here as well as publish videos on my Youtube channel. I have an unfinished blog series on a Biblical, non-Zionist perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which could be suitable to pick up now that I’ve studied the actual conflict a bit more, and when it comes to the Youtube videos I’m thinking about perhaps posting some theological sketches that could be fun to do, and perhaps reboot my old God vs Wealth series to some better quality. We’ll see, God knows 🙂
Away from keyboard, I will visit and speak at some Christian conferences here in Sweden, travel to the Jesus Army together with some friend as well as rest, enjoy God’s creation, evangelize and help the poor.
So, what are you up to this summer? And would you like to help me out in some of my projects? Let me know in the comments!
Congratulations for your paper defense and other projecta that are doing well.
I’ ll visit some European places this Winter ( =D I’m in Brasil) but Sweden is out of my itinerary. Among others places I intend to meet M. Buban and Aldo visita Constance in Germany with a Czech friend who wants attend the 600 years celebrations of the Council. If you are around there let me know.
Hello Jonathan! Welcome to the cold continent! Unfortunately, I won’t be aroung there, but maybe we’ll meet another time.
sounds like a busy summer. Can’t wait to read that church history book as it sounds pretty sweet. =D
It is, I think you’ll like it 🙂
Congratulations for your thesis defense. I hope you’ll continue on masters program. Please do it!
I wish you good luck during the research. I just wonder how you’ll deal with Whitefield, though.
