It's been a while since I updated this blog, and a lot has happened! Despite being dead set on a PhD program, I have ended up pursuing a master's degree at Harvard Divinity School. I came in as an Masters of Theological Studies student, HDS's version of an MA. However, just a few short months into the program, I realized that academia is not the career path I'm looking for right now, and I ended up switching to the Masters of Divinity (MDiv) degree instead. The MDiv is a practically-focused degree, with a Field Education component and a required Introduction to Ministry Course. This semester, I'm really enjoying exploring the concept of ministry, broadly defined, and trying to figure out what my personal ministry is - I do not feel called to become ordained! I'm also exploring new things in my courses, including theology, which I have not read much of in the past. I'm really loving HDS and all the new things I am learning and doing. Who knows where this will lead?
