New semester approaches

July 22nd, 2008

My books, lectures and assignments for this semester at Tabor arrived yesterday. It was a mixture of emotions. On one hand I was excited and looking forward to the learning, then part of me wondered how many assignments I would have to do!

After looking through all the paper work I found there was a lot of work to do, but most of it looked pretty interesting. Straight away my brain started to kick into gear and I started planning out some of my assignments. That might seem strange to most people, but I am one of those strange organised people who likes to start things early.

At first glance a couple of assignments seemed quite interesting. One was reviewing a churches pastoral care program and then writing a report on how it operated and suggestions to make changes or improvements. Another was to look at a current ethical issue and show all sides of the debate and make conclusions from a Biblical perspective. Both got my brain ticking.

It will be interesting to see what happens after this semester. I am not 100% sure yet if I will continue on with more studies next year. Most of the time I think I will, but I guess it depends on what God has in store. If He opens up a position for me I might continue with my studies part time. If not the books are looking pretty good at this stage.

As with all things written on this blog, time will tell.
