Well it is the first day of the second class of the summer term. You would think that I would have learned after last year and trying to learn Biblical Hebrew in two weeks. But no, I have to take Biblical Greek in the same amount of time. Well to be honest I have not had a choice this year. I needed to take one more New Testament course and it just so happens that the only one that was available that I could take (being able to schedule all of the other courses that I had to take) was this Biblical Greek course. So once again I am going to try to work my way through another ancient language in two weeks. Wish me luck folks.
It has finally cleared up here and now the sun is actually shining after a number of days of fog and rain. Then again we are on the east coast and one must expect fog and rain, but this weeks looks to be sunny and warm, might actually get the chance to wear shorts.
It is strange to think that 1/3 of my time here has already passed. In reality three more weekends and then on the next one I will be flying home for the last time from a summer session at AST. I have been thinking about how the time seemed to fly. In many ways I remember my first summer down in Halifax and how I thought it was going to be such a long time before I am finished this program, and here we are coming to the end. This journey has had its ups and downs and even now I am acutely aware of the things that are going on back home for which I am not present. The time is going quickly, and I will be home before you know it, but I ask one thing of all of you. I ask that you please hold each other gently and that you each be present for others at this time. I am, and have been, with you all during this time. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Peace and blessings,
