Virginia Theological Seminary sent me a face mask today with their name on the front. I'll wear it gladly. It fits really well and is three ply.
It made me remember my post-graduate education.
Two years at Harvard Divinity School--the first fully funded by the Rockefeller Foundation. I got that because two of my college professors nominated me for 'a trial year in seminary' for people college professors think should be ordained but weren't going in that direction.
I guess they were right.
A few years later, two years at VTS for my M.Div.
Several years after that two years at Hartford Seminary for my Doctor of Ministry.
Six years of theological training and I haven't picked up a book on theology for 15 years or so!
I guess I either had too much or it wore off.
I don't know which.
