What I learned is that some things take time to mature, just like the growth of a Christian and our understanding of Scripture. Now that my study room is set up, I am all ready to put in the hard work of research and writing. But ironically, I just informed my leaders that I am returning to my church office beginning next week. 98% of my books are at home, so in my office I won't have any references to rely on, but I thought it important that I took a symbolic step to reopen the church office in the hope that church services will commence soon thereafter.
