Time truly does fly.
It’s been nearly a year since I began to make blogging a regular practice. Some months were pretty active, some were clearly not (I haven’t posted anything since December!). Yet it’s been a really interesting opportunity, and I’m hoping to do more of it this year.
2012 has brought new experiences. I recently concluded a series on “Reading the Bible Well” for our fellowship’s adult Sunday school class. It was difficult to get back into the routine of study, preparation and delivery on a weekly basis. I’m so thankful for the time I had after finishing my undergrad to return to the college and teach for a year—I know I was calmer, and clearer for it. Many people have expressed their appreciation for the classes. Thank you for that! If it made even a small difference in your life, then I can rest easy! I look forward to doing more someday. (Also, if anyone is interested in notes, let me know—I’m thinking of posting them on the blog at some point).
I’ve also started an online class for a Masters of Literature program through the Mythgard Institute, an online centre for Tolkien Studies. The class is focussed on J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis—exploring their friendship, literary theories and novels in tandem. I’ve already learned so much! Yet with three weekly sessions, our evenings seem shorter (though fuller, if that makes sense)! We just finished reading The Hobbit, and are moving on to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Some favourite that I haven’t picked up in awhile.
Thanks for dropping by! Talk to you soon,
