First off, I'm back at school. The church where I worked over the summer gave me a nice send-off along with a modest check, which was very nice, as I was there strictly as a volunteer. It was enough to buy my books for the semester, so I was happy.
We rearranged the furniture in our room that makes it like 500% more functional. I could have never believed how much better life could be by switching the placement of a few pieces.
Classes are going well, and I have an official title for my thesis! "Bringing the Christian Message to the Secular-Humanist Community." At the moment, I have a lot of sociology books about Postmodernism. (I wanted to be able to say that I'm reading a lot of books about Postmodernism, but that isn't strictly true.)
What's very nice is that my class on Contemporary Issues in Science and Religion is dovetailing very nicely with my thesis topic. I'm getting lots of great ideas of where to go for more information.
I'm also getting to know a lot of new people with the incoming class of seminary students. They seem to be a good bunch of kids. And on top of that, I've joined a kind of small support group, which I was desperately missing last year. So far so good! :)
