I started my 7th Seminary course yesterday, only 3 more left until graduation!!! I was hoping to graduate this year in May but unless I really pour on the gas I will never make it. So, looks like I'll have to wait until 2013 to participate in the graduation ceremony. :(
Church has been going well. I've really been busy studying and preaching through the Life of the Apostle Paul and more recently the Book of Daniel. I find myself being challenged trying to learn and teach all of the prophecy that Daniel contains. Like I told the congregation the other night, teaching prophecy and the end-of-times stuff is not my preference but I must preach the full council of God and that is part of it. Interestingly enough, several people have told me how much they enjoy learning about all of that stuff.
As for my secular job, I am not even going to start putting down my frustrations concerning it because it wouldn't help and nobody cares and they never will and if I had a billion dollars I would buy the company and cast it into a lake of fire to burn forever and ever. Did I mention I was frustrated???
I've been reading some very good books lately. Yes, believe it or not I occasionally get to read something other than the Bible (though not very often). I found some really good buys on some used book at the local KARM thrift store. Someone donated several books published by Convention Press. Various commentaries on different Books of the Bible and a great book on the life of William Carey. While I was at the Crown Bookstore I found a fantastic book on the Prophet Daniel, written by M.R. DeHaan. It is packed full of great stuff dealing with prophecy.
Well, I have wasted enough time blogging so I better get back to the grindstone. Tomorrow is our final Bible study on the Life of the Apostle Paul and I have to prepare a Pop Quiz to hand out!
