Just an update - I am currently in week two of a six-week road trip doing research. Part of my dissertation is 35+ in-depth interviews with people who have experienced conversion facilitated or initiated by online media, specifically people who have been saved through 'I am Second.' It's been a thrilling trip, and beyond the long drives, I've met fascinating people whom God has radically changed. Many of them have deeply sorted backgrounds.
So far I've covered five states in this first leg and by the end I will have visited 33 states and have driven well over 10,000 miles. Six weeks is a lot of driving, but Starr and I have been able to work a bit of our travel together; by the end of it, we will have spent close to three of those six weeks traveling together, so it’s a fun season as I put in long hard days and knock out this dissertation.
Lincoln is suffering the most... staying with good friends who provide lots of unsolicited back rubs and puppy hugs.
