Well, today I start a week of a 9-5 class called Introduction to Pastoral and Theological Studies. I’ll write a post later in the week to give some of my thoughts on 1 week intensives, but for now I just wanted to comment on how amazing my fellow classmates are in this class.
So, one guy is a missionary in Turkey whose pastor is beat and stabbed on a regular basis. Another is a missionary to China who has been kicked out twice. Another is a guy from S. Korea who went to elementary school and university… between that he studied judo. Oh, and then there is John Piper’s assistant… I’ve never felt so boring. Thankfully, Kari’s post from Saturday reminded me this seminary isn’t a competition.
