We are all indebted to Edward for the benefits we receive on this list. I
greatly appreciate his way of drawing from each of us our best thinking and
making us all feel welcome in this circle. I want to tell him so face to
face in Boston. I already have my plane ticket and hotel reservation.

I do not feel worthy, but I pray that I can help the list to endure as an
effective tool for the study of the Greek NT. I am not much of an
innovator. I like to plow where others have plowed before (fewer roots and
stumps you know). So I hope there is a contribution that I can make for the
sake of the study of the GNT. I look forward to working with Carl and
Jonathan. I long to meet them, perhaps in Boston?
