These are some of my best friends from my time at Princeton Seminary. They are fun people and we’ve had some great memories. But right now, I’m a little upset with them. You see, they are done. Done. They are done with seminary. No more classes or final papers. But I’m still finishing up, and because I thought a Dual Degree sounded cool, I have one more year. Now, I know that it’s actually my fault, and in all reality, it’s probably going to be a good year. I will get to hang out with some professors at Princeton who I enjoy, and, when I graduate, I’ll have my Masters of Divinity and my MA in Youth Ministry. So it won’t be all that bad.
However, last week when I had to register for classes, I was experiencing a little bit of jealousy of friends who didn’t have to take another 30 credits, and who were looking for calls and jobs and other fun things like that. But…more classes for Adam. And, for some reason, Princeton decides to put all the good courses in the spring, and only a couple in the fall. I had to struggle to pick what courses I wanted for the fall, but I ended up with Gospel & Culture: African Experience (Dr. Omenyo), Religion & Society (Dr. Fenn), The Doctrine of Election (Dr. McCormack), The Self in the System (Dr. Dykstra) and Calvin & Renewal of the Church (Dr. Johnson). My hope is to be able to do a 3-credit thesis in the fall and drop one of those courses.
But, nevertheless, I still have one more year.
