So my time in Chicago is quickly coming to an end… quicker than I bargained for! But before I go, I will be taking my first Fuller class, right here in good ol’ Chi-Town!
When I was in Pasadena, I met Desiree Segura-April, who is one of the Children-at-Risk professors (and a really fabulous person, by the by). She mentioned that she was bringing a group of students to Chicago this summer for a Children’s Spirituality Conference, which is being offered as an independent study class. I didn’t think much of it until I got home… hmm, I live in Chicago, I’m going to be studying children at risk, why shouldn’t I take the class? Oh yeah, I was accepted for the fall and this class is in the summer.
What’s a girl to do?
Well, this girl emailed and got the information to try and move my acceptance up a quarter. Woo and Hoo! I’m able to start this summer! Unfortunately, that is the only class I’m taking, so I won’t have enough units to qualify for financial aid. I guess I could try to find another class to take, but since I’m going to be galavanting all around this summer, I probably shouldn’t try to bite off too much. My plate is already feeling a little crowded…
I just can’t say how excited I am about this next step. I am so ready (I think) to be back in the classroom, learning and discussing things that are relevant and important and on point with what I feel called to do.
Being equipped for the call… May’s memory verse says it well.
2 Samuel 22:32 – 35
For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze
A time for being armed with strength… a time of learning to stand on the heights… a time of training my hands for battle.
For surely this is a battle of epic proportions.
