Things that have happened today:

11- meeting with the coordinator of the field eduation program- this is the program by which M.Div’s go out into the world, find a parish, and work there as a intern. I like my present parish, but in some ways it’s not ideal- the pastor is new, and I would kind of like to have a female pastor to work under. There’s also the issue of outside ministry- I would like to do something at a church where they were active in the community beyond the parish. All churches do this, but some make it a real active part of who they are.
This meeting unexpectedly lasted an hour, and gave me lots of information about churches to go and talk to. It revealed that one female pastor whose name sounded familiar to me, was in fact someone I had seen speak at a church in my MA. Her church sounds really interesting and active in her community, they have a really good Latino outreach program to the area, so she would be a great resource for me, but the church is still an hour and fifteen minutes away on a good day. That’s a lot of time. The dean of Saint James Cathedral is also kind of an interesting figure to me, so that would be someone to look at.

I met with a professor, who was terribly late coming from another meeting, about using his class for a kind of constructive theological paper- instead of just research, the paper is supposed to end by looking at your own view of something in that theologian’s work and then criticizing and suggesting another reading of it.

(This whole academic program has made understand that reading really is an active process of interpretation- there are books out there that are just readings of one writer putting them in context with another writer- it all seems totally derivative, but it’s really astonishingly creative.)

1.30-2.50- Class with the same professor as above. He’s a total sweetie- we are reading Tillich, and I am behind, but it’s kind of okay because we still have several days left and I had that presentation yesterday that left me kind of unable to get anything done.

6pm- The MA banquet- this was a lovely meal that I ate and said goodbye to my last days of being an MA. Life is good. The boy was there so that I could snuggle when I wanted and had an excuse to discipline myself to go and do work rather than go to the pub afterwards like I would have let myself do.
