It’s been a busy week – a busy few weeks in fact. Tomorrow is deadline day for the second semester essays here at Ridley. Essentially, academically speaking, it’s the culmination of my first year. In the last few weeks and days, I’ve written four different essays. There is one on iconography and what it can teach us about using film and imagery in church today, I’ve critiqued the implementation of a church vision, I’ve sketched out an enquirers course and written up why I did it that way and I’ve written an essay about in what sense, if any, was Jesus being punished on the cross when he died. All interesting stuff – I’ve enjoyed it. Even if it’s been flippin hard work at times!
I may be relaxing now but I have a feeling that while I’m finished, there may be one or two of my colleagues pulling an all-nighter tonight to get it all done. *cough* Tiffer *cough*
In the midst of it all, I had to lead and preach at my attachment church’s evening prayer service tonight. It was chucking it down with rain outside and I like to think it was the weather that affected attendance rather than knowledge that I was leading and preaching! 😉
Anyway, the vicar said that my sermon deserved a wider audience. So I am giving it one here! 🙂
