Wow, my brain feels like it has been fried. Not in the bad way, but in the good formation way, but my brain just isn’t used to be pushed to think outside of the box. I heard a PhD student state it best, “the Lord is forming you into exactly what He wants you to be. He might need to take you down to the bare chassis, but He’s gonna get you back up where he wants you.”
So I really am blessed to have the classes I have. First of all, I have awesome professors for all of my classes.
Church Planting- Monday 3 pm – 6 pm
Wow. My professor is Dr. Ryan Bolger. He is an assistant professor of contemporary culture here at Fuller. He has church planting experience here in southern California as well as lots of research in Emergent/Missional churches. It is very exciting
New Testament – Tuesday/Thursday 11 am – 1 pm
My professor is Dr. David Downs. I think he is incredibly intelligent because he somehow is fitting the whole New Testament into 10 weeks. It is a very intense class, yet I think it is one the most important classes I will take here at Fuller…if I survive.
Biblical Theology of Mission – Thursday 6 pm – 10 pm
This is my all time favorite class. The main professor is Dr. Charles Van Engen. He is one of the foremost scholars in Biblical Theology of Mission, some of my classmates came to Fuller just to take classes with him. The TA is a professor at another seminary, but is helping with the class just to work with Dr. Van Engen.
No matter how fried my brain feels right now, I am excited about my classes. Don’t misunderstand me, I am stressed out and worried about getting back into “school-mode” but it is slowly coming back to me.
Well I’m off to read the other 13 books I have to read before December 9! Hope you all are doing well, and if we can pray for you in anyway please do not hesitate to let us know.
