A new arrival

Early this morning, there was a new arrival in my family: a good-humoured, handsome, inquisitive and (needless to say) quite brilliant little chap named James Daniel Myers. So if posts here at F&T are a little less regular than usual, you’ll know why!

Mazel Tov! Many happy returns! Don't let the joking about "Church Dogmatics in prep for Kindegarten" get to you. When my eldest (now 12), Molly, was born, I found that the only way I got any serious reading done was to read theology books to her in the same voice as I would read "The Cat in the Hat." So, she and I got through Moltmann's "The Way of Jesus Christ," that way. I also practiced my Greek, Hebrew, Spanish, and German, by reading passages of Scripture in those languages to Molly as I changed her diapers. She now learns languages easily and wants to become a translator for the United Nations!

Congratulations!

Jason Goroncy said...

Awesome news. Rejoicing with you and yours.

byron smith said...

Since Ben's children seem to provide all his key theological insights, can we expect more theology of silence and via negativa from this newest influence? Or perhaps some articulate reflections upon the 'groans that words cannot express'?

Either way, peace and joy be upon you all!

Ben Myers said...

Many thanks to all of you for your good wishes. He's a gorgeous little boy, and we're enjoying his company immensely. My five-year-old daughter summed it up best: "Oh Dad, he's the most beautiful baby boy we've ever had!"

Thom said...

Congratulations!!!

Congratulations.
I see, from an earlier comment, that your wife's name is Elise.
Best wishes to both of you, James Daniel (his middle name is my son's Christian name) and all the family.
