Actually, I went to seminary because God told me to, but He didn’t tell me what I would do with it, seriously.
My passion is explaining the Gospel through any and all means; spoken, written, incarnationally, et al.
Vocationally, I have no idea how it is going to play out. Ideally, I’d teach academically 1/2 time (H.S. Prep school now, University level, eventually) and teach/disciple/spiritual formation at a church the other 1/2 time, focused specifically on the 18-30 age. So far, either of those doors have opened…but I’ve spent my life learning patience, so a bit more will be completely okay.
I’m finishing my M.A.R.-Biblical Studies in two weeks, and I have about a year left on my M.Div.-Theology & Apologetics. My private/undeclared emphasis is postmodernism and the Gospel bearer’s interconnection with said philosophy.
Hope that provides some clarity!
RE: The comment…boy, theology doesn’t really come in little doses. I read Erickson’s Christian Theology, and Enns Theology…both were pretty good. Enns is a bit easier going…Mere Christianity is really great, too.
Outside of a very brief bike ride…I’ve been at this computer all day. In other news…I also read a book; all of it. In other, other news…and half of another. And, wrote a critique.
I need a vacation.
Killer morning at Reality, dynamite lunch, scored a yakima rack for Sam, surfed Rincon, read a great email, at a fabulous dinner and now I’m reading a book, having a brew and shuffling all of Bon Iver…not bad, not bad at all…
Amen & Amen
