Our Christmas Card

Here is this year's Christmas Card. Lots of people (particularly my friends, since I am so bad at keeping up with addresses) might not have gotten it. So here it is (minus the fancy paper):

Our news this year is that Joya started law school at Campbell University School of Law in August. We moved her to a little house in NC (35 miles South of Raleigh), and she dived into Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, Property and Legal Research & Writing. It's intense but she loves it!

Jonathan remains in Kingsport, TN finishing his residency (only six more months to go!!) and through the amazing hospitality and open home of our friends, Luke and Melissa, we meet halfway each weekend in Winston-Salem. We've got one more semester of juggling 3 homes. Then Jonathan will move to NC to practice until Joya graduates in 2009, and we will once again attempt a normal life (although, it's been said that "normal" is just a setting on your dryer).

We know how blessed we are to know you and have you as our friends. Thank you for the love and grace you've offered us and for the knowledge of your constant friendship. It's not ideal that we are only in touch with some of you at Christmas but it's better than never to let you know we thought of you this year with smiles on our faces.


I am amazed sometimes at how blessed I am. So many things to be thankful for...

Consistent Life Forums

I recently set up a web-forum for discussion of the Consistent Life Ethic. Although does a wonderful job spreading the word on consistent non-violence, I realized there isn't a place on-line for people to discuss this political and social movement.

So I set up a web page for discussion. Feel free to check it out and join the discussion here:

While I'm not sure I'm 100% in agreement with everything, I would certainly gladly identify with this group over Republicans or Democrats.

It's kind of sparse there right now, but hopefully some interesting discussions will pick up soon.

I have two incredible family medicine clinics I am considering joining. Both practices are incredible community practices that also do hospital work, and they both seem very interested in me. I actually love them both which makes trying to make a decision hard.

I suppose there are worse things in the world than having to choose between two excellent options.
