I haven't written in a while. It's been far too long, in fact, but I know I'm forgiven.
My first semester in seminary was a whirlwind of excitement, learning, and grappling with constructs and information. I had a great semester, and my grades were all decent. For someone who didn't grow up attending church, doesn't have an undergraduate degree in any form or theological or religious studies, and is all-in-all feeling like a newbie to this whole game, I fared quite well for my first semester. And... I'm delighted to report that it was such a success that I'm getting ready to head into round two!
My class schedule is as follows: BOLD is the class title, ITALICS is a discussion group
Monday: Nothing (which translates to library time)
Tuesday: 9:30 - 11am: Reading the World II
Tuesday: 11am - 12:30: Intro to New Testament
Tuesday: 1pm - 2pm Intro to New Testament Discussion Group
Wednesday: 10am - 11am: Reading the World II Discussion Group
Wednesday: 1pm - 5pm: Practicing Faith II and Discussion Group
Thursday: 9:30 - 11am: Reading the World II
Thursday: 11am - 12:30: Intro to New Testament
Thursday: 2pm - 5pm: Church in Late Antiquity
Friday: Nothing (which once again translates to library time)
In visual form, it looks like this:
I'm looking forward to getting into the class work and seeing my friends again. I'll post a life update in a couple days.
