It's week two of the semester and I'm enjoying being on the other side of the classroom for a change - in the student's seat. I'm sitting in on a Psychology of Religion class at my state university this semester and so far it's fascinating. Not to mention, since I'm in the fellow-student's seat and not the teacher's, I'm free to comment however I feel led.
The prof is an excellent teacher. He is not a Christian, though his mother is a strong Southern Baptist.
The best part though, is my husband walks me to class. He meets me in the parking lot and escorts me to the classroom door. If you read chapter one of It's No Secret, you'll understand why this makes me giddy. I feel young.
Other professors see us in the hall and smile as we kiss goodbye at the classroom doorway. (Note, we did not do that in chapter one's story.) So I think this class could be good for my marriage. Maybe I'll take more in the future. A creative writing class maybe. I wonder if they have university cooking classes?
Today I'm also reading some in the book of Esther. I'm doing Beth Moore's Esther study this nine weeks and have to be ready to lead tomorrow night's session. Have you done this one? We're just starting but I'm certain I'll learn loads between these pages.
I think Beth's studies are terrific. I'm also kind of partial to Jennifer Kennedy Dean's studies. Do you have a favorite? I'm guessing no one will answer this one, but ever read anything on the psychology of religion? My inner geek wants to write a "This is Your Brain on God" book!
Off to finish my homework...
