Nice Dr J. Thought I had caught you out here...

I had not come across the term “Provenience” before - thought you had misspelled from “Provenance”.

 

I should have known better!

According to wiki in the the entry for “Provenance"

 

It has been argued that in archaeology (North American archaeology and anthropological archaeology throughout the world), when the US spelling provenience is used it has a related but subtly different sense to provenance. Archaeological researchers use provenience to refer to the three-dimensional location or find spot of an artifact or feature within an archaeological site,[2] whereas provenance covers an object's complete documented history.

 

I stand educated!

 

I differ on the pronunciation of cupola though B) !

Thanks, Ken!

 

Happy to know you've got my back. Yes, I confess, all of my archaeological training has been in North America and it has been anthropologically-oriented (that being the US's great contribution to historical archaeology). I have yet to dig in the Near East, though I have longed to do so for some time. I've even  considered becoming certified as an underwater archaeologist, as I like to scuba dive.

 

Our kids are grown now and mostly through college. Once we really have an empty nest, I'm thinking that there may be (at long last) time and money for such expeditions. :)

"Were your ears burning earlier today? 'Cause we were talking about you," was something my southern grandmother used to say.

 

On 15 March 2015, our church family, in Selah, WA, was introduced to you, Dr. J, by way of a few screen snaps I took of your most helpful presentation and used in our Sunday evening Bible study service. The first snap I showed was that of the empty sand plain. The second snap was one of you so our people would know the one whose work was heavily borrowed from and should receive attribution.

 

We happily discussed how the podcasts and Dr. J's personable webinars have kept me focusing on who God is and what he has revealed in his Word. As a former data analyst, I tend to bog down as I seek just one more shiny nugget of information before I begin working with the actual sermon text. I explained to our people how Dr. J lovingly, after chuckling, yanked me out of a few such bogged down situations.

 

My wife began kidney dialysis this past week after nearly a month of preparations that required I be with her and not with our church family. Imagine, the Pastor for Preaching was absent from his church family for nearly a month!

 

This past Sunday morning's expository sermon, "Trouble Free, Never. Joyful, Ever!" emerged after my study of Psalm 100. Dr. J, and the Accordance team, you all helped me to have confidence that the Holy Spirit led me as I prepared it. As I used the tools and remembered what I've heard in the webinars and read in the blog posts and forums, my heart was made happy and my thoughts were firing. (Something becoming less common as my own infirmity, Polycystic Kidney / Liver Disease, progresses and brain fog and fatigue become the norm as I've been told.)

 

Thank you dear Accordance team. You've helped the Open Heart Baptist Church family in Selah, WA to more dearly love, trust, obey, and magnify God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. You are loved and treasured.
