I’ll admit, the feeling of being on Cloud 9 has now slightly dissipated, and I’m now spending more time thinking about the nitty-gritty of both theological study and the course that the rest of my life is now set upon.
It’s a strange place to be.
The well wishes and congratulations continue to pour in. It’s also a little different to be able to say “I’m going to train for ordination” than “I’m hoping to be able to train for ordination.” The affirmation is most uplifting.
But now there’s not really a huge amount to do. The practical things – leaving my current place, finishing at work, getting to where I’m going to be studying – are all things that will largely take care of themselves. But strangely enough, it doesn’t feel like I’ve got a lot be preparing for.
Isn’t that daft?
