today

Is the first day of week 10. My last week of classes at Fuller.

Yesterday I received a paper back with this comment on it:

“Several times you qualify things twice. Do not be afraid to say what you think. If you must qualify, only do it once. “I may go” is no different than “It seems like I may go” in this context.”

I’ve been told seminary can deconstruct more than construct. But I’m pretty sure life, relationships, and church have done the most deconstructing of those things I held as I entered seminary… notions of truth and value, identity and the right.

The comment on my paper spoke to more than my sloppy prose. It sums up. I’m afraid to say what I think. And I’m so unsure of myself I’m going to qualify it not once, but twice.
