This has been a rough week – as has been evidenced by the general lack of posts. I suppose that pretty much spells the end of the 31 Days challenge in its truest sense, but it will still be a success for me if I can get back into the rhythm of blogging and writing on a more consistent basis.
This weekend marks a change in the routine. For the past four weeks, I’ve been doing reading, watching videos and participating in chat sessions for two classes. One of those classes goes live this weekend during marathon sessions today (Friday), Saturday and Sunday with the professor at the seminary in Findlay, Ohio.
Some may look on this as a ton of work, but I find these weekends (and for some semesters it’s an entire week) rejuvenating. It’s a chance to get away from the routine and focus on the work for the classes. It gives me the space to remember why I wanted to do this in the first place and to further seek God’s direction in the ministry he would have me do when I finish the classwork.
For now, though, I have to finish one class assignment before I head over to the first session. It’s essentially a proposal for my class project for the semester. To be honest, I stumbled upon the idea much closer to the deadline than I care to admit, but I’m thrilled about the idea and can’t wait to dig in. More about the project when it’s approved by the professor.
Who knows? Maybe I’ll even do a second post this evening.
