All Work, No Play

What can I say; it has been far too long since I last posted to this blog.  The work, life, school balancing act went wildly out of kilter, with work consuming much of my time.  The project I have been managing for a client required weekly travel out of state since last November.  It had a huge impact on the last three weeks of the fall classes at Sacred Heart.  I had a feeling it might, and seriously considered not registering, but did so anyway.  It wasn't easy, but I did pass both classes, Introduction to Sacred Scripture and The Theology of Ministry, with considerable contribution from the Holy Spirit.

I did take the winter semester off.  The last thing I wanted to do was start a new semester the way I finished the previous one – sending in assignments via email from a hotel room in Virginia.  Based on when classes are offered in the upcoming spring semester, it looks like I won’t be hitting the books again until next fall.  Classes starting at 4:00 PM twice a week tends to create a little scheduling conflict with work.

I did find time to read two books about the diaconate – 101 Questions & Answers on Deacons and The Deacon at Mass: A Theological and Pastoral Guide, both by William T. Ditewig.  They are fairly easy reads, both about right around 100 pages.  I highly recommend them for anyone just beginning to discern the diaconate.
