So, Pastor --if you don't mind my asking-- how's that going? Do you use
Greek study in your general sermons/ministry, or is this primarily a
special study group? Do you hold special Greek classes or such? How
does your congregation feel about all this.

Personally I think it's a great idea. (But on the other hand, the
pretty-darn-conservative, small-town Hoosier church that I grew up in was
more like the old joke about the congregation looking to replace their
soon-to-retire minister. Fed up with detailed lectures on exegesis and
seemingly endless slide shows, their "want ad" ended "...and if you've
ever had a Greek course or ever visited the Holy Lands, don't even _think_
about applying here!" ;-)

Great name!
