A few different professors warned that the arrival of the slate of syllabuses creates a gut reaction (similar to the feeling of butterflies in the tummy) called "syllabus shock." I can attest to this feeling as I kept counting the number of books I'm expected to read, papers I'll write, and oral presentations I'll prepare and deliver. Yet, I'm a nerd, in that, I'm super excited for it all.
Any recommendations from those of you who've traveled the road of seminary or grad school. Are there things for which I need to watch out? Any tips on getting through all the material and papers?
Personal side of things: my mother-in-law showed up today to hold her new grandson. We've had a nice, peaceful day. We enjoyed a lunch in downtown Denver and a little sight-seeing to boot.
Tomorrow we visit an EFCA church plant. Pray that God would give us discernment as we seek a church home.
