Oh, and one more thing: Study

Besides daily writing, the content of which I outlined yesterday, I’m also, at the moment, a student. I’m in my church’s (the Orthodox Church in America) Diaconal Vocation Program. It’s essentially a self-paced, remote/online course of studies, at a sort of Master’s level, designed to prepare me to be ordained a deacon in the Orthodox Church. In Orthodoxy, a deacon is an order of the clergy, which is why it requires advance studies. I’m three-fourths through the second semester, Church History. I completed the first semester, Scripture, and in a few weeks I’ll be ready to begin the third semester, Doctrine. Then, sometime this summer I’ll begin unit four, Liturgy.

I have to admit, I’ve always enjoyed studying theology. Maybe I’ll be writing about that sometime over the coming weeks and months.

I sling words for a living. Always have, always will. Some have been interesting and fun; most not. These days, I write the fun words early in the morning before the adults are up and make me eat my Cream of Wheat.
