“It’s new technology. There are only three of them in the world, and we have two of them,” the security guard said to me when I asked about the sci-fi-looking security scanners. Almost every time you enter a building in Washington D.C., you’re required to go through a security check, but none of them is as fancy as the ones you encounter when you walk through the doors of the Museum of the Bible.
In 2015 I started getting into the habit of traveling a lot. While doing an internship in Omaha, I still had to take seminary classes in Ankeny, IA, so I estimate that I made about 40 of those 5-hour round trips that year. God also provided opportunities that year to go on a family vacation in Washington and Oregon, an orchestra tour in Minnesota, a short soccer tournament trip in Florida, and a ministry trip in the San Francisco Bay area.
