Well, I just completed my first of two assignments for my grad class this semester. I had to read around 90 pages and write an outline for a class on an intro to the New Testament World. It was not quite as easy as it sounded. It is done and now on to assignment 2 for the week, which is to read another 60 pages and write a page paper. Easier than the first, but still a good bit of work. Once I complete that I get to look forward to next week's assignment which is to read a 300 page book in small print on the the Canon of the NT and write a critical assessment of it. Though I'm interested in the book, it is a lot of reading to do in one week for a full time minister that is a dad of 3 children.
But I want my grad degree and I'm willing to work for it, plus I'm learning some wonderful things that I wouldn't casually learn just for the fun of it. The only person that might read a book on the Canon of the NT or about the Midrash customs of Judaism for fun would be maybe Terrell Lee or Stephen Lamb. Sorry guys, had to write that. :)
This weekend I turn 31. I don't know what to think about 31. It is an ok your another year older, whatever age. 30 is a monumental age, even 32 has a nice sound to it, but 31? Well maybe by the time my 31st year of life is over I can look back and have a better appreciation for the number 31.
Well, I have reading to do and an awesome supper to eat. (Roast, mashed potatoes, okra, green beans, and corn bread) mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..............
Blessings to you all,
