Seminary Update

This evening, I finished up week 8 of my second semester of seminary training. Given that the semester is 16 weeks long (not counting one week of break), that means that I have officially reached the halfway point of the semester. Assuming it will take me 7 semesters to complete the requirements for my M.Div., I am approximately 20% of the way through the program. Woot!

This semester, as you may recall, I am enrolled in two classes. The one-credit-hour Self Awareness & Appraisal class has been discussing personality, spiritual gifts, talents, and strengths. These have all been relatively affirming, but weaknesses is coming soon! And the six-credit-hour “Praxis” course, Congregational Leadership, has been addressing matters common to leadership specifically in the church context. To that end, we have spent time analyzing our churches and formulating plans to address any deficiencies and advance the mission. Both of these classes have been most helpful.

Grades are holding pretty good, although this semester’s workload is dramatically greater. As expected, the professors are also dramatically more stringent on their expectations for “master’s level work.”

Within the next couple of days, I intend to put the finishing touches on an essay which I hope will allow me to skip one class in May.

And that’s all for now!

    Your willingness to always seek God’s will and direction are two attributes that will help in this journey.
