Deeper Waters: Where We’ve Been. Where We’re Going.

Where have you been? Where are you going? Today we will discuss this on Deeper Waters.

Some of you might have been worried seeing as this blog hasn’t been updated in awhile. Did something happen to me? Well in a sense, yes. There is obviously a reason why I haven’t been posting. Today, I want to discuss where we’ve been, what changes have happened recently, and what this means for the future.

This blog was started a few years ago after reading Hugh Hewitt’s book “Blog.” It was never my intention to have this be just a blog. I hope to sometime soon have a full web site up and be active in other areas of ministry. For now, writing is a passion and something I plan to do regularly.

When I started, I lived in Knoxville, but I soon moved to Charlotte in order to pursue a degree at Southern Evangelical Seminary. After the controversy over Geisler’s actions towards Mike Licona last year, I decided that it was also time for me to move on and I’m now looking at the University of Pretoria to attain my Master’s.

While in Charlotte, I did through Gary Habermas meet Licona’s daughter and our relationship very quickly blossomed into a romantic one with my roommate at the time knowing that before too long, they’d have to book a wedding chapel, and indeed they did. We were married within a year’s time.

Before the wedding, I had also been talking with J.P. Holding of Tektonics. J.P. and I have had a long friendship over the years, even with my staying at his home when a friend of mine who lived near his area was getting married. J.P. and I had worked together often on TheologyWeb.com where we still do debates together and where I’m a department head. As it stands, when we had the new update to the site, shortly after my wedding, there was a section called “Deeper Waters” alongside Tektonics.

Now, I am J.P.’s ministry partner. Our work together continues but there are still other areas of work. Notably also, I am with Ratio Christi now as their social media and communications expert. I am in charge of the Issues and Answers chapter, which is a purely internet ministry, although I do hope to have speaking engagements from time to time.

While I was in Charlotte, we were planning to move back to Knoxville. My grandmother had passed away in November of 2010 and we found out in Christmas of 2011 that her old house was willed to among other people, myself. My wife wanted a good country environment where she could have a garden and be close to my family for whenever the time comes that we decide to expand the family. (A decision that I can think of several who would say “Please have mercy on us and don’t bring someone else like yourself into the world.”)

Unfortunately, I happened to lose my job in February and we would have no way to pay the rent. We decided then that it was time to just pack up and head back here. All of my ministry positions are still secure seeing as they’re online ones. I’m also working with Ratio Christi at UT of Knoxville. Furthermore, I plan on going to a Reasonable Faith meeting tonight so we’ll see where that goes from here.

In addition, I hope to be working on some books. I don’t want to say too much about what they’re about however, but the ones in closest confidence to me know. Rest assured that our ministry is still going strong. Of course, we could still use your support in donations and those made through Ratio Christi are tax-deductible.

Also, several of you comment on the date of the blogs and such. That is for my Mrs. to deal with as I know nothing about this kind of thing. I would also like to put up a button sometime on the side that links to my Amazon wish lists. (Yes. There are two. The first one had too many books in it and I had to make a new one)

If anyone else has any ideas on what they’d like to see, feel free to let me know. I am open to many suggestions. I cannot do everything, but I can at least listen. Hopefully tomorrow, we’ll return to our regular schedule.

In Christ,
Nick Peters

    Glad to see this place up and running again. I hope that things start to turn around for you, and I will be praying that they will.
