Just in the nick of time
History of Christian Spirituality, online.
Introduction to Theology, in person.
Resurrection in Early Christianity, weeklong seminar in March.
The last three weeks or so have been hell.
Dr. ER fell and buisted her head and got a moderate concussion.
Almost 50 people got downsized at work, including a friend and cubical neighbor. The last time, less than a year ago, I said I could feel the hot breath of the beast on my neck. This time I got blood on me.
And I lost an online friend -- and this is not an attempt to repair, if he happens to be lurking.
All in all, the suckiness has been especially sucky lately.
I NEED school to keep my mind occupied!
I think that's why the OT prophets were constantly enrolled in Yahweh's "online" offerings.
Sad days in Oklahoma indeed.
Second, the consolations of the school schedule - after all the upheavals - would certainly be a welcome respite. I know I find that the dullness of a lack of routine wears on me after a while.
