We are midway through the schoolyear and have made it through the first half of the New Testament. Definitely time for a pep talk and refreshments.
The hardest thing about being a Seminary teacher is that class is every single morning. At six.

There is something very vulnerable about that hour. People are just more real before dawn. Words are harder to muster and, therefore, a lot more valuable. Just like my daily workouts--some days I come away on a complete high, other days I'm just tired. But everyday, I'm glad I made the effort. And I know that consistency is the key to strength and success.
Teaching Seminary is stretching me into a better person, reminding me how hard high school can be, helping me gear up for teenagers of my own. I've found a group of good friends--some in the seats and some in the pages.
And, yes, I think we deserve a half-time cheer.
