New Year update – what’s been going on

Not many posts on my blog are personal, mostly they are about an idea or a viewpoint on a topic that I’ve been thinking about. But I thought that, given the break I’ve taken from that kind of post, it was time to fill you in on what’s been happening and some plans and ideas.

December’s blogging output mostly went on the Provoketive website. I wrote an Advent series, trying to see what we might learn from taking the beginnings of each of the four Gospels in the New Testament on their own, at face value. It was a valuable exercise for me, I hope one that others could learn from too. You can go back and read it even now – it’s in four parts: Mark, John, Matthew and Luke.

December was the date set for the exam board at LST, the meeting that approves the marks given for my MA. They have awarded me an MA with merit – a very good result for a student switching disciplines as I have. I am thinking about how best to make my work available to read – especially the dissertation on Rob Bell’s book Love Wins, as I think it may be interesting to some. Watch this space, as they say!

My job search goes on, as does the fantastic time I get to spend with my little boy. It seems unbelievable that he’s almost a year old, but I suppose a lot has happened in that time.

I have plenty of ideas for writing and 2012 is full of wide open spaces to fill with imagination!
