Good. Got an email back from B--, that he'll give me a professional reference. I guess I'm going to have to write a cover letter explaining that my academic recommendation is instead a professional recommendation and both of my professional recommendations are, in fact, based on volunteer work. Which, for my money (or lack thereof) should mean they're more impressive, not less. Not that I get a vote.
I have to write a sermon to present on Sunday about a message from GA. I don't want to turn it into an "all about me" thing, so I'm not going to make any kind of announcement about starting seminary. I'm having a hard time trying to translate the breathtaking experience of GA into a message that guests to our church will get something from.
