The Academic Journey Revisited

I posted some time ago about the interactions I've begun with the AALC  ( http://www.taalc.org/ ) and how I planned to start a course through their extension program.  I've started the reading for the course and do plan to post summaries of what I'm reading, as well as some comments about class meetings.

As things stand now, in late June I will have an interview with a group of denominational leaders who have the unenviable task of deciding if I seem to be someone they would like to have serving in pastoral ministry.  So between now and then I need to get to know the denomination as well as possible. I also need to be sure they know me as well as possible.  On a short time schedule like this we all need as much wisdom and discernment as we can find.

James 5.1 (ESV) comes to mind here.  "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him."
