I did Engineering at Uni and, on the whole, it was a bit boring. Most boring of them all was Thermodynamics - tedious, tedious, tedious (and a bad jumper every lecture by the man at the front as I recall). It was the ultimate irony, therefore, that the bit of my course that I came to use the most in my pre-ordination career was, you guessed it, thermodynamics.
With hindsight I would have done something different - not sure what, even if it mattered.
I went to Theological College for a very different reason - because I was excited about the possibilities of being involved in the Kingdom of God, but now that seems to be the hardest thing to actually be engaged with.
Continue to work to find the Kingdom coming into being, even if it is hardly discernible, or go native and settle for "moving the Church on a little"...
So, hello Rock. Greetings Hard Place.
Was I naive to expect different?
