Life update - PhD candidate

Hey SI friends,

Some of you who have known me for a while now may be interested to hear that I received an admission offer to PhD studies in church history at Princeton Theological Seminary. There is about a 99% chance I will be going. I just wanted to share this happy news. As always I appreciate your prayers. You can ask questions here or, if it's sensitive, through PM.

I love the passage, "rejoice with they who rejoice!" That is outstanding my man. My guess is they don't just let any "Tom," "Dick" or "Charlie" in that program - Good for you! - God bless! I pray you learn much and that you will be encouraged by the program.

As always.........Straight Ahead!

That ought to be a fascinating experience... in multiple ways. Wish you well.

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.

I'll pray for both your educational horizons and your checkbook - both will probably be strained! Good luck to you, Charlie.
