Hoping and Dreaming
For the majority of 2011, I have not been completely well. My post entitled ‘Knowing Christ in the Dark’ was written as a result of my health. As such, this year I have been working at a slower pace than I am used to, which I hope to remedy in the New Year. Therefore in 2012, I aim to finish the theology course I have already started. I have also applied for a part-time MA at Kings College London in Contemporary Religion starting September 2012. I also work part-time in Investment Administration, and need to complete two exams, one called ‘Introduction to Securities and Investments’ and the other called ‘Financial Services Authority Regulations’.
So all in all, I have a lot of studying to do!
Looking ahead I don’t have any particular goals for 2012, apart from my continued aims of being a devoted follower of Jesus, a faithful husband to Jenny, a good father to my teenage children Joel, Chloe & Isaac, a worthy leader in the Coign Church, and a blessing to the NewFrontiers churches in the Russian speaking world where I serve as a teacher.
I suppose if I was to add anything, it would to be blog half as often (and half as well?) as Andrew (‘how does he find the time?’) Wilson!
St Stuffed Shirt:
My aims for 2012 are humble. I intend to (a) see the successful launch of my first Christian Reality TV show, (b) grow my church attendance figures into the upper-mid-double-figures and (c) make friends with Rodney Trotter from the Reformation 21 blog. I suspect we might get on well, since we are men of such similar wit and stature, so if any of my readers were able to engineer an introduction, I would be most grateful.
To sleep more, read more, write more, laugh more, and worry less.
Staying faithful and fruitful by the grace of God in Jesus Christ. Run a sub-4 hour marathon. Have lots of fun along the way.
