The Continuing Seminary Saga--It's Gettysburg!

Last week, Friday through Monday, was spent at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. I was there with approximately 12 other prospective students for their fall Seminary Sampler. It was a wonderful time and the group of us stayed in the same place and really built community together.

There were panel discussions, tours of the campus and student housing, meals together and classes. Several decided by the end of our time together that Chicago was indeed the place for them to continue their studies. As for me, it was great, but I could not see myself there. It confirmed that Gettysburg was the place for me to go.

Yesterday I filled out my application to Gettysburg, sent off my transcript request to Regent and sent out the various reference forms to the appropriate people. On Saturday, the 10th (Luther's birthday!) I meet with the Synod Candidacy Committee, God willing, to move forward with the process. "
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you" (Ps 32:8).
