Musings on Spiritual Matters

by Matthew Morine

Week In Memphis

Well, the blog has been quiet this week.  The reason was that I was in Memphis working on the dissertation.  And according to policy, I do not announce when I am gone.  It was a great week.  I met with Dr. Bland.  We discussed the major areas for improvement, and what to do moving forward.  Having this next step completed feels good.  I need to pass it on to some editors, to make some changes, but the research is done for this next stage.  Hopefully, we will be finished soon, and I will travel again to defend it.  This has been a long process, but a highly beneficial one.  It has caused me to grow significantly.  This is what schooling is suppose to do.  Challenge you to be a better man.  It really improves your ability to handle complexity in ministry, which is a huge skill in this line of service.  I am glad that I have done this.  So hopefully, the blogging will start up again.  I have read a few great books recently, and this has stimulated a lot of thinking.  It is always nice to be home.
