I found out yesterday that I will be resuming formal studies by earning a Certificate of Anglican Studies from a reputable U. S. seminary’s distance program.
I had been seeking, for a year or more, how best to resume formal studies. The process has taxed my patience although I can say I practiced patience well, at least for me. But I cannot say I have made excellent use of this in-between time, the time between publishing and promoting my novel Pilot Point and resuming formal studies. Like many men, without a clear purpose and goal, I flounder a bit. It hasn’t helped that figuring out the best way to resume studies has taken longer than I originally expected.
Yes, I certainly have had enough to do and enough business to take care of. But without a compelling and clear goal, that hardly motivates. So I’ve floundered. I’m not making excuses. But I’m a sinful man, and that’s how sinful men are.
So I am glad the in-between time is over. For the next year or so, God willing, my focus will be on earning a Certificate of Anglican Studies.
That priority may make my posting here less frequent. Or, who knows, what I study may inspire more posts. But I suspect it will be the former.
I hope that earning my certificate will make my future writing here and elsewhere that much more erudite and effective. One can study, hope, and pray for that anyway.
